BAE Systems Company Selects Infor for Integrated ERP and Product Lifecycle Management

Integrated Infor ERP LN and Infor PLM 8 Solution Chosen to Improve Production and Accelerate Delivery Times

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa, Sept. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Infor today announced that the South Africa business of BAE Systems, Land Systems OMC, a leading manufacturer of mine protected and armoured vehicles, has selected an integrated Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution to improve product design and production efficiency. Infor ERP LN and Infor PLM 8 will help to provide more accurate product configuration, reducing the costly need to retrofit products and resulting in better service and faster delivery times for customers.

Following a review of the market, Land Systems OMC selected Infor ERP LN and PLM 8. Infor was chosen for its deep understanding of the manufacturing and defence industries and its ability to meet Land Systems OMC's specific needs for an integrated solution that encompassed conceptualisation, design, development, manufacture, production, re-manufacture and global in-service support. The quality control, product configuration and service management features of Infor's solution were also important selection factors.

"Infor's people showed a depth of knowledge and experience, which was a key factor in our selection," comments Gert Pretorius, engineering and business improvements director, BAE Systems Land Systems OMC.

"Our operations are complex due to the development of new models and custom projects in the same production environment as our existing product range. We must control many engineering and configuration changes whilst maintaining stringent levels of reporting to satisfy requirements for progress payments from our international customers. These factors place huge demands on our systems for accurate production planning, which requires integration between the shop floor and back office."

Softworx, an Infor partner in South Africa, will provide additional professional services support for the project.
