Today, companies require operations management tools that work across multiple sites and regions. In response, there is a growing trend for Operations Management solutions to extend beyond the scope of traditional applications such as production management, in-plant logistics, maintenance, or laboratory information systems, and to support a number of applications in a coordinated manner. Newer operations management or execution software delivers real-time, event-based information about people, processes, information, machines and material, and provides tools for taking operations to a higher level of enterprise performance.
To improve performance, companies need a way to drive specific process improvements at each plant, while at the same time monitoring activities and facilitating appropriate operating decisions among complex hierarchies, regions, business units, and operating structures. They need to rationalize spending for maintenance of systems and applications, and at the same time improve information and business process support for their increasingly complex, competitive environment.
