Why IT Managers Choose Opcenter & LSI
Over 25 Years of APS Experience
Technical Experience Is Key
OUR TEAM OF PROVEN INTEGRATION EXPERTS
In our 25+ years of experience implementing APS solutions, our team has extensive data integration knowledge & expertise. The LSI team of experts has a deep understanding of the complexities involved in integrating data from various sources & systems (ERP, MES, MRP, etc.), and have developed a range of strategies and techniques to ensure seamless integration and analysis.
SOFTWARE DEMONSTRATIONS CAN BE MISLEADING
Traditional software selection techniques are inadequate because they typically rely too much on the quality of the software demonstration, which is flawed if you don’t first understand your requirements. Before ever providing a demo, our team works with you to understand your unique requirements, and can even model it with your data to prove out if there is a solution fit.
OPCENTER PLANNING & SCHEDULING IS HIGHLY CONFIGURABLE
Opcenter has the largest install base of any APS solution in the world for good reason: it is highly configurable & flexible. Out of the box without customization, Opcenter offers a range of configurable parameters & rules to accommodate unique modeling constraints without the worry of messy upgrades.
SCALABILITY: LSI SOLUTIONS ARE ALWAYS IMPLEMENTED WITH GROWTH IN MIND
Whether you’re a small or large enterprise, Opcenter Planning & Scheduling can scale to meet your needs, and is designed to grow with your business. Its architecture supports multi-site and multi-plant environments, making it an ideal choice for companies with distributed operations.
SELECTING THE RIGHT APS SOFTWARE SEEMS DIFFICULT
No matter how hard you try, it is simply not possible to understand all the functionality you will need until you are well into your APS implementation process. Our team works with you during an in-depth discovery, known as our Two-Day Assessment, to uncover your requirements and outline a system design, along with specific data requirements.
MOST IT MANAGERS DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY APS SYSTEMS FAIL
Before investing in an APS solution, it is helpful to understand the most common reasons why APS implementations typically fail… because they can all be avoided. The co-founder of Lean Scheduling International & author of The Little Blue Book on Scheduling, Mike Liddell, has provided this helpful guide outlining the Top 3 reasons that APS Systems fail.
