ATS Lean Scheduling International (LSI) is happy to announce the promotion by Siemens Digital Industries Software to Gold Level Solutions Partner in 2021! This status is achieved by earning greater than $500,000 in net licensing revenue in a single fiscal year.
This is no small feat as Vice President of ATS Lean Scheduling International Dan Han reinforces: “While Siemens has a few other Gold Level Solutions Partners, most of them sell & implement a breadth of Siemens products. At LSI, we focus primarily on the implementation of Opcenter Advanced Planning & Scheduling (APS). I think this achievement goes to show that companies are coming to understand the importance of an APS solution and further shows that they trust our company to partner with them for a successful implementation with longstanding benefits.”
Since 2001, LSI has specialized in the implementation of Opcenter APS, formerly Preactor Advanced Planning & Scheduling, to assist manufacturers in achieving production efficiency and giving them the ability to quickly manage change. More specifically, APS solutions are designed to improve the synchronization of manufacturing processes, allowing for greater visibility and control to increase utilization and on-time delivery, while reducing inventory levels and waste. Opcenter Planning & Scheduling is the most installed independent APS solution worldwide, and as of 2021, LSI now has greater than 80% of the North American Opcenter APS customers in their client base.
For ATS Lean Scheduling International, the promotion to Gold Level Status comes on the heels of earning the 2020 Siemens Americas Award for Outstanding Sales Achievement in Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) Solution Sales at the Siemens Americas Partner Conference. This award recognizes the Siemens Digital Industries Software implementation partner who led all American partners in overall software sales within the MOM portfolio, which includes Advanced Planning & Scheduling (APS), Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES), and Quality Management Systems (QMS), among other products that are designed to improve the performance of manufacturing operations.
