NMW 2005: Invensys, Microsoft report alliance fueling ArchestrA adoption

Chicago, IL—Invensys reports that adoption of its ArchestrA technology is accelerating as system integrators and companies use Wonderware’s software to help improve application performance.


Chicago, IL— Invensys reports that adoption of its ArchestrA technology is accelerating as system integrators and companies use Wonderware ’s software to help improve application performance.

For example, Nutramax Manufacturing Inc. is using an ArchestrA-based Wonderware enterprise integration application with a business management solution, Microsoft Business Solutions-Navision, to achieve faster manufacturing agility and expand manufacturing capacity to meet increasing orders.

'By implementing enterprise integration application, our goal at Nutramax was to create a fully paperless environment, and to automate our business and manufacturing processes, while continuing to adhere to FDA regulations for manufacturing operations,' says Pete Patras, Nutramax’s VP. 'In a few months, the company has successfully achieved several goals outlined at the outset of this project. We've been able to quantify and reduce raw material waste, garner greater control of inventory of production materials, and have improved efficiencies in the manufacturing and packaging stages of our product production lines.'

The manufacturing execution software (MES) for the Nutrmax project was provided by local, certified Wonderware distributor, InSource Solutions, along with Wonderware Application Consulting services.

Wonderware adds that it and its network of system integrators have implemented software solutions in more than 425 automation and information projects for more than 200 companies, which are using Wonderware software built on the ArchestrA architecture. In fact, this represents an increase of more than 125 new projects and 20 new customer companies in the last five months.
