Emcien has been recognized as one of Gartner’s Cool Vendors in SCM and ERP for 2008. According to Gartner Emcien is cool because "Optimization is no longer just being used for transportation, inventory and production planning; it can also be used in innovative ways, such as determining the best mix of options an enterprise should offer for a configured product."
Emcien’s innovation originated when Dr. Roy Marsten, leading computational optimization expert, solved a tough problem for a leading auto manufacturer when a professor at Georgia Tech in the 1990s. Emcien was founded a decade later in 2002. Today Emcien is dedicated to solving complexity problems in the discrete
manufacturing industry. Towards this end they offer a unique software solution to help leading manufacturing companies deal with unrelenting pressure to reduce costs in their manufacturing and supply chain operations, that yields significant bottom line savings to clients while giving them a competitive advantage with customers.
Radhika Subramanian and Dr. Marsten will also be honored when Emcien graduates from ATDC this Thursday during our Entrepreneurs Showcase. Please join us if you can.
