Manufacturing

Professional ServicesWith the emergence of low-cost, globally distributed facilities, manufacturing operations have changed dramatically in recent years. To compete effectively, manufacturers have discovered that optimizing processes within the organization and across the supply chain is no longer an option—it's a requirement.

LMT works with many manufacturers across every segment and with a global reach, to integrate shop floor and enterprise information systems. By transforming their operations, these manufacturers have reaped significant benefits, including cycle time reduction, higher throughput, better quality and enhanced visibility. In the face of increasing global competition and regulatory compliance, manufacturers must take concrete steps to be more responsive and energy efficient while minimizing emissions. Yet internally, many IT departments are still struggling with poorly integrated legacy systems that drain financial and human resources.

LMT can help you elevate core plant-floor operations by enabling real-time integration with shop-floor systems, as well as ERP and RFID solutions. In addition, our relationships with leading software vendors help us integrate new technologies to streamline your operations, tighten plant/business integration and deliver real-time visibility for more informed decision making.

Generate better outcomes and reduce costs by partnering with us on a wide array of activities and reduce the cost of compliance.
