F1 Racing Data Management Engine – Epicor & Scuderia AlphaTauri Partnership

Epicor, a global leader of industry-specific enterprise software
<https://www.epicor.com/en-us/industry-productivity-solutions/>  to promote
business growth, and Scuderia AlphaTauri today announced that Epicor has
been named the Team’s Official ERP Partner. The multi-year agreement builds
on an already successful long-term technology relationship and solidifies
Epicor as the powerful driver behind Scuderia AlphaTauri’s operations,
enabling the team to focus on continuous performance improvements, both on
and off the track.

“In our data-driven world, there is no offseason. The demand for high
quality data and intelligence across every aspect of our business and racing
operations is paramount.” said Franz Tost, Team Principal of Scuderia
AlphaTauri. “Epicor is at the center of everything we do, and this
technology partnership makes perfect sense for us. We’re able to quickly
deliver the right information to the right people at the right time, which
gives us a competitive edge. We are looking forward to go racing with Epicor
for many years to come and achieve always greater results.”

In a racing environment where success is measured in milliseconds, real-time
performance data and attention to every detail is critical. The Epicor
Kinetic industry productivity platform for manufacturers enables Scuderia
AlphaTauri to centrally manage all processes and data across its operation,
optimizing every aspect of the team’s production, inventory, component
testing, and financials with greater speed, accuracy and organizational
visibility.

“F1 demands a commitment to excellence, something in which the Epicor and
Scuderia AlphaTauri teams align,” said Paul Stoddart, Epicor CMO. “Epicor is
excited to be an essential partner enabling the team’s constant drive for
performance, something we strive every day to deliver for all of the makers,
movers and sellers we serve worldwide.”

Just one racing car is made up of more than 14,000 precision components.
Many of those parts are custom-made onsite by technical designers and
engineers. Historically, managing production of each unique part,
understanding lifespan, and ensuring the right parts were ready for race day
proved challenging with older, siloed software systems and manual processes.

Today, with Kinetic, Scuderia AlphaTauri can automatically render an entire
schematic structure of its racing cars and every part, all serial-tracked,
and store a snapshot of that structure coded to a specific race. During
component production, Kinetic automates the job creation process for each
part, minimizing data entry and speeding productivity. The team also has
granular visibility into which machine, operator, and tools were used to
manufacture each part, helping develop cost-analysis models that inform
make-or-buy decisions, as well as quickly correcting any production issues
before getting to the track.

During testing, Scuderia AlphaTauri overlays all telemetry data collected on
the track from the more than 900 sensors onboard each racing car, providing
a precise and accurate view into individual part performance, when each part
is installed or replaced, and predictive analytics. The team can also
automatically “unwind” the data to earlier snapshots of the car structure to
pinpoint potential component issues and ensure a problem is not replicated.

The Epicor wordmark will debut on the AT02’s front wing endplates at the
upcoming Grand Prix in Austin, celebrating the beginning of a long brand and
technology partnership with the ERP innovator.
