GE Fanuc Automation has entered into a sales and marketing agreement with SAP American Inc. to jointly market a plant floor and enterprise integration system designed for the automotive and mill products industries.
The enterprise, which will see GE Fanuc Production Management solutions and SAP applications offered in a single package, will increase quality and productivity and enable success in such business initiatives as Lean Six Sigma, the companies said.
“GE Fanuc has successfully implemented SAP-integrated production management software solutions, ranging from single-plant environments to diverse, multinational, global rollouts,” John Dyck, GE Fanuc global director of production management, said. “By working even more closely with SAP, we are helping manufacturers achieve the next level of business transformation.”
“By combining and jointly marketing GE Fanuc production management and SAP adaptive manufacturing solutions, our customers can overcome the barriers historically restricting contextual information flow between the plant floor and the enterprise,” Tom Cruz, GE Fanuc vice president, software and services, said. “[This] help manufacturers transform their business through increased visibility and resulting responsiveness.”
Headquartered in Charlottesville, Va., GE Fanuc Automation is a joint venture between GE and Fanuc Ltd. of Japan.
