ERP provider Epicor recently announced that Sage Clarity, a provider of software and advisory services, has made its ABLE™ solution available for the Informance Enterprise Manufacturing Intelligence system. ABLE is a cloud-based solution that provides real-time root cause analysis for manufacturing operations and simplifies control architectures for complex production lines. ABLE works to identify the root cause of an issue and pass the exact information on to Informance. Epicor Informance EMI monitors production line performance in real time and creates transparency around the causes of operational losses. According to the company, this can lead to unlocking hidden capacity, increasing productivity, reducing inventory and labor costs, and increasing working capital. ABLE resides between the plant floor, MES and SCADA layers, and requires no PLC programming.
