Implementation

Software: SAP® Business ByDesign® deployed by ERP Logic

The solution enabled the joint venture to synchronize master data elements between the parent company and the joint venture. When deployed during mid of 2016, the implementation allowed Rockwell Collins and CAMSSL to operate as one business unit improving the service levels, inventory management and cost of operations.
