  • USDATA, Robotic Vision Systems Form Alliance
Apr 2003
RICHARDSON, Texas, April 16 -- USDATA Corp., a supplier of industrial automation software solutions, and Robotic Vision Systems Inc., a developer of machine vision systems, have announced a strategic alliance to provide end-to-end traceability solutions for component manufacturers.

RVSI's direct part-mark verification and reading technology will be integrated with USDATA's manufacturing execution system technology. The companies will undertake joint marketing and sales to industries that rely on unit-level traceability, principally the automotive and aerospace industries.

"Warranty costs in the automotive sector alone exceed $9 billion a year," said Jim Fleet, interim president and CEO of USDATA. As the mandate for direct part marking grows, manufacturers are increasingly recognizing that component identification can lead to substantial processing savings if integrated with the right data management and reporting infrastructure, the companies said.
