Marcam Solutions: Shifting its Focus to MES


The envisioned integration with Wonderware's FactorySuite 2000 will allow Protean users to solve shop floor problems with all production data collected and made instantly available. We believe that within the next 4 years Marcam will gradually shift its focus to plant integration and operations applications, while de-emphasizing its financial and order management components and relying on interfaces with other ERP vendors.

Invensys Production Solutions - Can Historic Strengths And The 'Protean Boost' Overcome Its Liabilities?


Invensys has created a new group within its Production Management Division called Invensys Production Solutions. The group includes the PRISM and Protean process ERP products plus the resources of Invensys Validation Services group. While the unit should have much strength, it also has certain liabilities that must be addressed.

Thus, Baan might now be singled out as the possible discrete manufacturing black sheep' in the family, causing Invensys to likely occasionally review the carrying value of its investment in Baan. Still, while Invensys does not plan to integrate iBaan ERP functions with PRISM and Protean, it does plan to leverage Baan's Read More

Reliability Driven Maintenance--Closing the CMMS "Value Gap"? Part Two: Reliability Driven Maintenance


Reliability driven maintenance (RDM) focuses on understanding the "asset health" to determine what maintenance work should occur and when something should be done. It enables preemptive intervention before failure occurs, whereby failure would mean that equipment is not delivering required performance regardless of whether it is actually broken down or not.

Enterprise Resources Planning (ERP) Market - Dismal 1999, the New Millennium to bring Relief (for Some)


The worsening plight of most ERP vendors, caused by the market slowdown, which started in the fourth quarter of 1998, continued in full force throughout 1999. The market size for 1999, with the 4th quarter yet to be reported, is estimated at $18.5B-$19.5B (12%-16% growth over 1998), with sales expected to top $55B-60B by 2003, for a CAGR of 28%-32%. ERP software suites will become universal business applications that will encompass front-office, business intelligence, and e-commerce/supply chain management, and ERP will no longer be the acronym sufficient enough to cover it, so we would like to suggest a new acronym - iERP, meaning Inter(
