Companies to address manufacturing planning, execution needs of discrete manufacturers
Under the terms of the agreement, Visiprise will be one of a select group of launch partners supporting Windchill MPMLink, the newly announced PTC product. The combination of Visiprise's Integrated Manufacturing Operations solution with PTC's Windchill PDMLink(R) and Windchill MPMLink products will result in a new standard of connectivity for manufacturers across their product design, manufacturing planning and shop floor execution.
Visiprise intends on creating an integrated solution which will address the manufacturing planning and execution needs of discrete manufacturing companies in key industries including aerospace & defense, automotive & specialty vehicles, machinery and high tech.
"Our plant floor solutions have been integrating the shop floor to the enterprise for years," said Carter Johnson, senior vice president of corporate development for Visiprise.

Formalizing this alliance provides Visiprise and PTC customers with an integrated capability that will help reduce new product introduction times, improve regulatory compliance, and assist in achieving product and process quality improvement objectives.
