Alpharetta, Ga. -- Visiprise and EDS PLM Solutions have formed an agreement to engage in cooperative product development, sales and support.
As a first step, Visiprise SCE, a Web-based collaborative manufacturing execution system, and EDS PLM Solutions' ground-breaking Teamcente Manufacturing solution will be tightly integrated, providing a new level of connectivity across product design, manufacturing planning and shop floor execution.
This significant alliance addresses the manufacturing planning and execution needs of the discrete manufacturing companies in key industries including aerospace/defense, machinery, medical devices, and high tech industries.
Visiprise SCE's ability to deliver manufacturing plans and instructions to the shop floor can now be driven directly from the fully managed product and process information configured in EDS PLM's Teamcenter. This enables the value of product design data, and manufacturing process definition to be utilized directly in shop floor manufacturing systems, maximizing data reuse and automating the propagation of engineering changes. The ability of the SCE product to collect detailed, as-built information from the point of manufacture provides critical product and process data that can be fed back through the integration, to product design and manufacturing planning functions supported by Teamcenter. This integration offers significant support for the engineering change process, accelerating new product introduction and enabling faster product and process improvement.
Visiprise is the newly formed manufacturing solutions provider created from the merger of two industry leaders: Teradyne's Manufacturing Software Group and NetVendor Inc. For more information, visit www.visiprise.com.
