Emerson acquires Decision Management International
DMI becomes part of Emerson Process Management, adding leading software and expertise, including electronic management of workflow, materials, equipment, personnel, and documentation, to expand Emerson's real-time manufacturing solutions. The acquisition includes all DMI technologies, applications, services, and employees.
Compliance Suite by DMI software is tightly integrated with Emerson's DeltaV Batch software as part of PlantWeb digital architecture. The comprehensive technology provides high data integrity in paperless manufacturing solutions and an integrated, electronic batch record that improves overall cycle times and reduces manufacturing costs. Data integrity is a critical part of operations for manufacturers that must comply with requirements in regulated industries, such as life sciences, specialty chemical, and food and beverage production.
Emerson and DMI have had a close relationship since 2002, delivering integrated manufacturing solutions to process facilities. With the added capabilities of DMI software, Emerson's automation solutions encompass the entire spectrum of process facility operations - everything from customer order receipt through production, warehousing and shipment. The comprehensive automation extends into production recipes, materials, equipment trains and overall site documents.
"We are excited to bring on board the excellent leadership team from DMI and to add its technologies, services and application expertise to the Emerson family," said John Berra, president, Emerson Process Management. "This acquisition extends Emerson's portfolio and leadership in batch automation solutions to improve and streamline production processes, and enables us to offer an even broader range of value, performance and reliability."
"This is excellent news for our company, our customers, and the Life Sciences Industry," said Frank Grywalski, chief executive officer of DMI. "Being part of such a successful global automation organization will enable us to provide an even broader and deeper range of solutions, grow our business faster, and continue to contribute to the success of the Emerson businesses."
