Manufacturing software developer to attempt big turn

Published on .

Intellution Inc., a 20-year-old company specializing in software for the factory, said Friday that it has promoted from within a new president of operations to assist in changing the company's business model. Bill Gerraughty has been named president, boosting him from an exec VP. Intellution, Norwood, Mass., said it plans to begin developing software that takes information from machines on a factory floor and makes it available to systems that can publish it on the Internet. That's the type of ``granular'' data business partners are expected to eventually make available over Internet-enabled supply chains. The move is a dramatic one for Intellution, which has long provided software systems that allow companies to capture data for use in-house. Its software is installed in more than 130,000 factories worldwide.
