Infor has announced that the South African mine-protected and armored vehicles business subsidiary of BAE Systems, Land Systems OMC, has selected an integrated enterprise resource planning and product lifecycle management solution to improve product design and production efficiency.
Infor ERP LN and Infor PLM 8 will help to provide accurate product configuration, reducing the costly need to retrofit products and resulting in better service and faster delivery times for customers.
Infor said that it was chosen for its deep understanding of the manufacturing and defense industries and its ability to meet Land Systems OMC’s specific needs for an integrated solution that encompassed conceptualization, design, development, manufacture, production, re-manufacture and global in-service support.
Softworx, an Infor partner in South Africa, will provide additional professional services support for the project.
Gert Pretorius, engineering and business improvements director at Land Systems OMC, said: Infor’s people showed a depth of knowledge and experience, which was a key factor in our selection. Our operations are complex due to the development of new models and custom projects in the same production environment as our existing product range.
