Teledyne LeCroy Improves Workflow With Infor PLM Discrete

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

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Dec 10, 2012) - 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.

"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."
