QAD Adds Business Intelligence To Manufacturing Apps

QAD unveiled business intelligence software for its enterprise applications that help run manufacturing operations.

QAD on Wednesday unveiled business intelligence software for its enterprise applications that help run manufacturing operations.

QAD BI analyzes data gathered by the software maker's MFG/PRO system, which streamlines manufacturing processes from the production line to financial and supply-chain interactions. Better data analysis enables manufacturers to better align execution with business strategy, officials with the Carpinteria, Calif.-based, company said.

QAD BI comprises two primary components: a data transformer and pre-defined business models. The data transformer performs extraction, transformation and loading functions on raw data collected by MFG/PRO, aggregating the content in a dedicated business intelligence data warehouse. The pre-defined business models incorporate 150 key performance indicators and provide a framework for mapping the collated data to a meaningful format.

QAD BI was unveiled at the company's Explore 2004 User Conference this week in Charlotte, N.C. Pricing was not disclosed.
