AWS-Industrial-Software-CompetencyIndustrial companies in process and discrete manufacturing leverage highly-specialized software solutions to increase product innovation while decreasing production and operational costs in their value chain.

Last year, we announced AWS Industrial Software Competency solutions from AWS Partner Network (APN) Technology Partners for an end-to-end industrial software toolchain.

These partners provide solutions targeting one or more of the primary steps in discrete manufacturing or process industries: Product Design, Production Design, and Production/Operations. They follow Amazon Web Services (AWS) best practices for building the most secure, high-performing, resilient, and efficient cloud infrastructure for industry applications.

Following up on the success of our technology partners in this space, we are excited to welcome APN Premier and Advanced Consulting Partners to the AWS Industrial Software Competency program.

The AWS Competency Program helps customers identify and choose the world’s top APN Partners that have demonstrated technical proficiency and proven customer success in specialized solution areas.

To receive the AWS Competency designation, APN Partners must undergo a rigorous technical validation related to industry-specific technology. This validation gives customers complete confidence in choosing APN Partner solutions from the tens of thousands in the AWS Partner Network.

AWS customers can now explore APN Partner solutions in the following areas:

  • Product Design: Applications and services used in the design phase, including Computer Aided Design (CAD), Computer Aided Engineering (CAE), Electronic Design Automation (EDA), and civil engineering.
  • Production Design: Applications for factory layout and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM), Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), and Product Data Management (PDM).
  • Production/Operations: Discrete and process industry applications like Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES), Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM), Plant Information Management System (PIMS), supply chain logistics, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), analytic applications for industrial use, and manufacturing specific Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions.
