EDS, an HP company, has launched an integrated manufacturing software application to enable manufacturers to compete effectively and improve profitability.
According to the company, this application, based on software services provider Apriso’s FlexNet platform is designed to support the integration and collaboration of a manufacturer’s plant floor, warehouse and quality operations with its enterprise resource planning and product life cycle management systems.
The two companies are engaged with global manufacturers within the automotive, industrial, aerospace and defense, high-tech/medical device, and consumer goods industries to provide a globally integrated manufacturing enterprise that will design and implement next-generation operations execution platforms, according to EDS.
EDS delivers portfolio of information technology and business process outsourcing services to clients in the manufacturing, financial services, healthcare, communications, energy, transportation, and consumer and retail industries.
Darl Davidson, vice president and manufacturing industry leader at EDS, said: Manufacturers are under increasing pressure to streamline costs, improve product quality and exceed customer service expectations and responsiveness. Leveraging Apriso’s manufacturing operations management platform with EDS’s large global services presence will enable us to enhance our manufacturing clients’ agility while lowering their operating costs.
