CIMNET Australia has announced the opening of an Australian office to market its new manufacturing execution system (MES) called Factelligence.
The heart of the Factelligence software was developed by Australian company, Realtime Information Systems. Realtime marketed the predecessor to the Factelligence MES for several years in Australia, prior to heading to the USA in what the founders of Realtime felt was their "sink or swim" expansion.
Realtime went on to win some major manufacturing accounts in America and Europe for its Aussie software.
After merging with CIMNET, the new team began a three-year R&D project to produce the next generation management system for factories.
Ian Stone, the founder of Realtime and CIMNET Executive VP, will now be leading the push back into Australia for the Factelligence system.
The Factelligence MES software product from CIMNET creates a real-time, web centric information system to enhance supply chain visibility.
Using direct links into the manufacturing equipment, it manages, tracks, and optimises every aspect of production.
This information is integrated with the supply chain systems and people that manage the factory.
Factelligence is used by discrete, batch and process manufacturers in industries such as automotive, pharmaceutical, medical device, metal processing, food, beverage and consumer packaged goods.
