Infor Visual Manufacturing (fka Lilly Software) is one of the most widely-adopted ERP platforms for growing manufacturers across a wide variety of industries including fabricated metal products, plastics and rubber products, industrial equipment and machinery, automotive, aerospace and defense, and more. Infor Visual offers a superb bill of material and routing but does not natively connect to most of the popular CAD, PDM, or PLM applications on the market where engineers define the engineering bill of material.
CADTALK ERP connects the data between these engineering applications so that the engineering bill of material (eBOM) can drive the manufacturing bill of material (mBOM), production routing, items, and inventory updates inside Infor Visual Manufacturing. Every time a new part is designed or revised in CAD, those new records or updates to existing records are seamlessly made inside the ERP database in Infor Visual. In fact, CADTALK reduces the engineering to manufacturing hand-off by 80% reducing manual data entry errors. It can even calculate manufacturing run times, scrap, and can identify the best vendor and warehouse location for purchased and manufactured items.
Other CADTALK products you may consider include CADTALK DFM which allows you to see Infor Visual data from inside your favorite CAD, PDM, or PLM application; CADTALK DA which automatically generates and flexes CAD models based on inputs from configure price quote (CPQ) product configurators; and CADTALK NEST which integrates popular nesting layout applications with Infor Visual Manufacturing.
We understand that many Infor Visual customers are considering a move to Infor CloudSuite Industrial. Rest assured that CADTALK is there to help when the time comes to make the leap to Infor CSI. Not only is CADTALK compatible with both Infor ERP products but CADTALK BOM can streamline the implementation of Infor CSI by automating the record creation for items, inventory, bills of material, and routings in Infor CSI based on the CAD data shaving weeks off a typical implementation.
