THE COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE
Collaborative systems are a hallmark of industry leaders in today’s competitive global environment. Enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems transformed the loosely coupled business applications landscape into a sophisticated, integrated knowledge management tool. Extending that same strategy into the production environment requires a unique blend of manufacturing-focused applications and expertise. Companies that want to compete in an increasingly global marketplace recognize the need to reassess their manufacturing information strategy for production management systems.
Rockwell Software combines an unparalleled understanding of the manufacturing automation environment with the needs of manufacturing information technology to deliver a multi-industry, integrated and modular manufacturing execution software solution set that supports both discrete and hybrid production processes.
FactoryTalk ProductionCentre is a mission-critical platform for industry applications requiring real-time production management. Synchronize real-time production data with enterprise resource planning information, and sustain plant operation even if a security event isolates your ERP system from your sites.
