AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - June 30, 2016) - Epicor Software Corporation, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, congratulates Power Solutions International, Inc. (PSI) for winning a 2016 Manufacturing Leadership Award presented by Frost & Sullivan. PSI was recognized in the "Enterprise Technology Leadership" category for process improvements the company made leveraging the Epicor enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution.
A leading cleantech manufacturer of industrial and on-road engine and power solutions, PSI embarked on a process improvement project in June 2015 that involved serializing each part of a given engine -- as opposed to the finished product -- to help meet aggressive production schedules and increasing customer demand. Within 45 days, PSI was able to better utilize the capabilities of its Epicor ERP software, to improve how they track and maintain inventory, and increase profits while redirecting the efforts of a second shift of employees. According to the company, these enhancements resulted in a nearly $100,000 return on investment (ROI). PSI serves as a prime example of how applying leading software technology contributes to manufacturing efficiency and competitiveness.
Frost & Sullivan's Manufacturing Leadership Awards, now in their 12th year, honor manufacturing companies and individual manufacturing leaders that are shaping the future of global manufacturing. Winning projects and manufacturing leaders have demonstrated achievement in one of a wide range of categories and are chosen by a panel of expert judges.
Manufacturer of the Year, along with the top-scoring project in each category, were announced at the 12th Annual Manufacturing Leadership Awards Gala during the Manufacturing Leadership Summit, June 6-9, 2016 at the Omni la Costa Resort & Spa in Carlsbad, CA.
