Emcien joins the ranks of successful companies 'graduating' from Georgia Tech's Advanced Technology Development Center (ATDC). The ATDC provides a high growth environment for technology companies on the Georgia Tech campus, launching companies like Earthlink, Knowlagent and Procuri, who have gone on to achieve tremendous success in global markets. Emcien hopes to follow their lead. Emcien's mission is to make manufacturing in the US more competitive by offering a solution to reduce Complexity Cost that is adding a tremendous burden to an already capital intensive industry.

Manufacturing companies are struggling with the product proliferation resulting from a changing marketplace and its effect on the sales mix. This is further exacerbated by an extended supply chain, shortening product lifecycles, and rising material costs. The added cost that this imposes is called Complexity Cost. Emcien offers a solution to help companies meet customer demand with a sharply focused product offering based on market-specific customer buying patterns, hence greatly reducing complexity cost and generating more profits.

"I believe it is conceptually a leading edge approach to quantifying large-scale complexity," says John Mariotti in his book, The Complexity Crisis. "Some problems are just too complex to wrap your mind around, and you need the help of a computer with programs developed by specialists like Emcien."

"Most manufacturing companies do not have visibility into what their complexity is costing them," says Emcien's Chief Scientist Roy Marsten. 'Their product proliferation has resulted in parts proliferation, reduced forecasting accuracy and increased supplier costs. With Emcien's solution companies can target complexity, increase profits and improve stability of their suppliers and the supply chain.'

Emcien has already won multiple National Science Foundation awards under the Manufacturing Innovation Program aimed at increasing the competitive capability of manufacturing firms in the US. "Manufacturing has the biggest multiplier impact on the economy, and is the engine of US economic growth," adds Marsten. "Emcien delivers an innovation to reduce manufacturing waste and cost. We hope this will enable companies to keep manufacturing in the US."

In the coming years, Emcien plans to be counted among the successful graduates of the Georgia Tech's ATDC, with a significant contribution to the economy by improving manufacturing efficiency in the US.
