Infor Announces New Collaboration with FORCAM
Infor announced Infor MES - Powered by FORCAM, a new collaboration with FORCAM, a global leader of Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT) solutions. As global manufacturing processes, especially in the high-volume automotive industry, become more complex, the need for a state of the art IIOT solution that provides real-time insight and analytics into plant operations by integrating shop floor machine data with top floor ERP data increases. The Infor - FORCAM "shop floor to top floor" solution addresses these challenges by focusing on efficiency and the reduction of machine downtime, through machine learning and advanced analytics.

The combination of ERP solutions, like Infor LN, and FORCAM's advanced IIOT technology platform and expertise helps organizations manage their network of people, technology, activities, information, and resources more effectively and economically. In addition, the solution helps to digitize and harmonize all manufacturing operations across the global supply chain and enterprise so manufacturers can make better decisions, boost manufacturing excellence, and deliver exceptional levels of customer fulfillment. With Infor MES - Powered by FORCAM, data collected from machines and production lines can be leveraged for detailed analysis of planned versus actual progress, as well as predictive analytics.
