Mumbai: Geometric Limited (BSE: 532312, NSE: GEOMETRIC), a leader in Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions and technologies, today announced  a strategic partnership with the Wonderware business unit of Invensys, a leading global supplier of industrial automation and information software solutions. Through this agreement, Geometric will work with Wonderware as both an Endorsed Systems Integrator and as an Endorsed Industry Solutions Provider.

As a Wonderware Endorsed Systems Integrator, Geometric will implement selected manufacturing solution projects as part of Wonderware-managed, solutions delivery teams.  As a Wonderware Endorsed Industry Solutions Partner, Geometric will create and support industry-specific applications that add value on top of Wonderware System Platform, MES and EMI offerings. In order to accomplish these partnership goals, Geometric will leverage its rich experience and large asset base in product engineering, digital manufacturing and enterprise interoperability technologies.

With the additional capabilities gained from the partnership with Wonderware, Geometric will be able to offer a comprehensive portfolio of services and solutions across the product engineering and manufacturing lifecycle including product design for manufacturability, manufacturing process planning, simulation & optimization, manufacturing execution & control, plant asset management and operational intelligence, in addition to its established offerings in the product lifecycle management (PLM) arena.

Jason Dietrich, Wonderware Vice President of MES Business Development and Solutions Delivery said, “This partnership with Geometric will deliver significant benefits to Wonderware customers. We’ll leverage Geometric’s global delivery capability, existing Wonderware channels, and our combined teams’ strong domain knowledge to accelerate solutions deployment for customers that want Wonderware to take on full solutions responsibility.”

“The relationship with Wonderware provides us an excellent opportunity to work closely with the existing Wonderware Distribution and SI channels, and to deliver a global services advantage to Wonderware customers worldwide,” said Kamal Ajitsaria, Practice Head of Manufacturing IT at Geometric Limited. “Our team is able to provide many advanced solutions that bring together our joint capabilities in MES, PLM, and ERP integration”, he added.

Geometric helps customers achieve their business goals by leveraging technology to deliver better efficiencies in product realization. Its Manufacturing IT Practice was created in early 2007 with a mandate to address the need of customers requiring a single vendor across manufacturing engineering and operations management. One of Geometric’s early initiatives in the Manufacturing IT arena, “iPQM (integrated Product Quality Management)”, a PLM-MES-ERP composite solution, was recognized by the leading analyst firm, AMR Research in their Report, “Co-Innovation Awards Put Manufacturing 2.0 Composites on Display” in November 2007.
