Teledyne LeCroy Improves Workflow With Infor PLM Discrete

Infor Product Lifecycle Management Helps Speed Processes and Enable Consolidated Data Management

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 12/10/12 -- Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced that Teledyne LeCroy, a manufacturer of electronic design and test devices, has implemented Infor PLM Discrete. Teledyne LeCroy selected the product lifecycle management (PLM) application, built specifically for discrete manufacturers, to integrate with its existing Infor ERP solution, to enable consolidated data storage, enhanced workflow and faster approvals. It also delivers a user-friendly interface to facilitate improved internal processes and business decisions.

News Points

  • Connectivity between Infor PLM Discrete and ERP enables improved data transfer, which reduces the need for duplicate entry and helps ensure the accuracy of information.
  • Teledyne LeCroy also benefits from the PLM Discrete data storage functionality, where product lifecycle histories are automatically saved from original conception to current configuration, with resulting information stored in a unified, easily accessible repository.
  • Advanced workflow capabilities allow managers to have greater control over product change requests and approvals. That enables them to make more efficient business decisions and maintain enhanced process visibility.
  • PLM Discrete delivers a modern, easy-to-use interface that clearly displays product drawings through a web browser. Users now have access to consolidated and straightforward production specifics to balance day-to-day task completion.

Teledyne LeCroy Quote
"We previously managed all workflow and approvals separately from our PLM system, which made it difficult to track a request or changes," said Tyler Cox, vice president, Product Development, Teledyne LeCroy. "With PLM Discrete we can easily track who initiated a change request, made the approval and view what stage the request is currently in, significantly improving our speed in altering and improving products."

Infor Quote
"Infor PLM Discrete is designed for out-of-the-box integration with Infor ERP solutions to provide discrete manufacturers with easy access to critical operations information," said Ken Liesegang, director, Product Management, PLM, Infor. "Built with industry-specific functionality, Infor PLM enables a faster response time for change, allowing businesses to keep up with evolving customer demands."

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
