ALLENDALE, N.J. --(Business Wire)-- Control Associates Incorporated and Incuity Software, Inc. announced today they will conduct a joint workshop for manufacturing executives, on October 19, 2006, to help them learn how to make better business decisions that can optimize their companies' productivity and profitability.

"This free workshop is ideal for both decision makers and decision implementers in any manufacturing company, including people in production, operations, plant management, engineering and IT management," said Terry Spaeth, Control Associates Senior Vice President. "There will be two sessions per workshop, one covering the business problems that the Incuity EMI software can help people solve and one covering the more technical aspects of how to configure applications to do that."

"Anyone in the business of manufacturing knows the roadblocks encountered in attempting to link plant floor systems with enterprise applications," said Gary Wilson, Incuity Vice President of Sales. "The first half of the workshop will cover how users can resolve issues such as leveraging legacy historians; compliance management; downtime/OEE analysis and reports; product analysis and reporting; key performance indicator (KPI) support and dashboards; manufacturing integration with ERP systems; and enhanced supply chain visibility.

"The second half will explain how to access, correlate, analyze, visualize and act on manufacturing and business data from all the systems in a manufacturing enterprise," Wilson added.

The Control Associates-Incuity workshop begins with a continental breakfast, registration and networking at 9:00 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 19, at the Control Associates offices (20 Commerce Drive) in Allendale. The first half of the program, starting at 10:00 a.m., will cover the enterprise issues involved with truly linking plant floor manufacturing operations with enterprise computing applications.
