The alliance will provide discrete manufacturers one tightly integrated, off-the-shelf manufacturing software platform, says EMT's Dennis Cocco, ceo. 'This environment has historically been overwhelmed by an abundance of narrow, customized software applications, each solving one small piece of a larger problem,' says Mr. Cocco. 'Our alliance offers a collections of manufacturing intelligence solutions that independently or collectively present significant value to manufacturers.'
