Cincom Systems of Australia – Cincom Systems has entered into a strategic, global co-operative marketing agreement with Memex Automation to deliver an enhanced ERP solution that adds the productivity improvements offered by Memex’s MERLIN real-time industry machine monitoring and control technology to Cincom Total.

Cincom Total is an enterprise resource planning system built with Microsoft Dynamics AX that is powerful enough to take on some of the most complex supply chain, logistics, manufacturing, fulfillment and service tasks.

Dave Schwarber, managing director of Cincom’s Business Manufacturing Solutions division based in Cincinnati, OH comments MERLIN helps unite islands of unconnected productivity information on the manufacturing shop floor. As a Microsoft Dynamics Global Strategic Partner for Manufacturing, Cincom is keen to introduce MERLIN’s real-time machine connectivity to Cincom Total’s worldwide community of Microsoft Dynamics AX users running complex enterprises.

Dave McPhail, President and CEO of Burlington, ON-based Memex Automation explains Memex Automation is highly motivated to promote Cincom Total to MERLIN’s global customer base, adding that Cincom offers 45 years of expertise in some of the most complex manufacturing challenges in the world, such as aerospace and defence. With Microsoft Dynamics AX, Cincom Total transforms complexity into sustainable competitive advantage for global manufacturers.

Memex Automation’s flagship product MERLIN is a Manufacturing Execution System application that tracks manufacturing operations bi-directionally from the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) work order to each machine’s detailed operations. MERLIN connects to all machines on the shop floor using various protocols, MTConnect adapters or network connectivity devices. It measures capacity utilization and Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) metrics, and tracks up to the second detail about every event at a machine, all automatically.

Being the only end-to-end ERP/CRM solution built on Microsoft Dynamics AX, Cincom Total ERP gives manufacturers the flexibility they need to manage complexity and be successful. Microsoft Dynamics AX helps meet the enterprise-level challenges of wide-scale manufacturing ERP deployments while the familiar Microsoft interface minimizes training and assures adoption.

Cincom Total ERP gives high-performance manufacturers the ability to anticipate customer needs and changing market conditions to help them win more business, run smarter operations and deliver to customers as promised.
