Company will develop and deliver services based on FactoryTalk production and performance applications from Rockwell Automation

MILWAUKEE — Rockwell Automation today announced that L&T Infotech has joined its FactoryTalk Information Solution Provider program. As a partner in the program, L&T Infotech will join Rockwell Automation in helping global manufacturers build successful, plant-wide information applications and manufacturing execution systems (MES) using the FactoryTalk integrated production and performance software suite.

The Information Solution Provider program was established by Rockwell Automation in October 2006 to provide manufacturers with a resource-rich network of information systems professionals to help drive better manufacturing performance by integrating plant-floor control and information systems . Through the program, Rockwell Automation trains and certifies information systems professionals on implementing MES and integration platforms within the FactoryTalk suite, and integrating these applications with enterprise resource planning and plant-floor control systems. The FactoryTalk suite of solutions focuses on the following disciplines:

    * Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM)
    * Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES)
    * Production Visibility and Enterprise Manufacturing Information (EMI)
    * Data Management
    * Regulatory Compliance and Quality Systems

“L&T Infotech is well-versed in software for business collaboration and integration,” said Kevin Roach , vice president of Software , Rockwell Automation. “Having L&T as part of our partner network is a testament to the commitment we're making to help our customers use plant-floor data to improve collaboration and manufacturing performance.”

According to MESA International , there is ample evidence to indicate that a company that synchronizes plant information with enterprise systems creates an agile production profile that improves both a company's competitive position and its regulatory compliance.

L&T Infotech will supplement an already ample stable of information systems professionals that are gathered under the FactoryTalk Information Solution Provider program to help facilitate that integration.

“L&T Infotech has a rich history of helping manufacturing clients find solutions connecting the shop floor to the top floor,” said Sunil Pande, senior vice president and country manager USA , L&T Infotech. “By using the FactoryTalk suite of customizable applications, we hope to provide our clients higher value by leveraging greater expertise in enterprise resource planning and enterprise systems integration.”

The FactoryTalk Information Solution Provider program is part of the Rockwell Automation Partner Network, which includes business enterprises, sales and solutions, and product and technology partners. For more information about the Information Solution Provider program, visit .
