Cummins Listed Among Top 500 Energy Innovators

Press Release
Friday, September 21, 2012

Cummins Inc. wins place on InformationWeek 500 list, especially for adoption of its electronic data-based Order Management Sytem (OMS).

During 2011, while Cummins was growing from a $13 billion to $18 billion company, it was important to harness business innovations to support it. The Order Management System (OMS) was one innovation that played a key role. Cummins Emission Solutions (CES) implemented the OMS in 2011, allowed for rapid expansion of the CES business, a key factor in the growth of the entire enterprise. This impact of the OMS was a primary reason that Cummins received the InformationWeek award. 


CES was launched in 2002 and in just 10 years ago, the business has grown to a $1 billion business within Cummins. The Order Management System provides CES increased capabilities, streamlines processes and offers greater flexibility to be more responsive to customer needs. OMS also provides the foundation on which Cummins receives, schedules, and manages orders throughout North America, enabling Cummins employees to respond more swiftly to customers. 


A cross-functional team of business experts and IT professionals worked together for more than 18 months on the development and implementation of the new system. Dwayne Allen, Executive Director of IT in Components, said, "This was a team win across the board: a successful implementation offering new business capabilities and aligning with our long term IT strategies while improving service to our customers." The solution went live on one of the top transactions days in the 10-year history of CES with no issues or disruption of service. 


With headquarters in Columbus, Indiana, USA, Cummins Inc. is a corporation of complementary business units that design, manufacture, distribute and service engines and related technologies, including fuel systems, controls, air handling, filtration, emission solutions and electrical power generation systems.

InformationWeek identifies and honors the nation's most innovative users of information technology with its annual 500 listing, and also tracks the technology, strategies, investments, and administrative practices of America's best-known companies.
