New York, June 16, 2010 – Luxoft Consulting Strategies, Inc (LCSI), a division of Luxoft Consulting, Inc, has been selected by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) to provide strategic consulting on the planning for an enterprise resource planning (ERP) replacement project. Work on the project began in May 2010.

LCSI will assist PPPL in selecting the new ERP platform that will enable the laboratory to increase its operational efficiency and enhance its collaboration with the DOE, customers, and suppliers. Specifically, LCSI will be responsible for requirements gathering, assessment of current state abilities of PPPL’s people, process and technology, and authoring a future state vision and roadmap that reflects the vision of PPPL’s management team. LCSI will also provide assistance to PPPL in creating a request for proposal to potential ERP vendors, and assist with the evaluation of vendor responses. Optionally, LCSI may provide the Independent Verification and Validation (IVV) of the winning vendor’s implementation performance.

Drawing on its existing implementation and research experience, LCSI is firmly positioned to deliver vendor selection strategy and perform the IVV mission. “With IVV, LCSI will be making a full implementation-lifecycle commitment to PPPL’s ERP success,” said Stuart Selip, the head of Luxoft Consulting Strategies, Inc. “Given PPPL’s vision of enabling a world powered by fusion energy and leading discoveries in plasma science and technology, we at LCSI are thrilled to be a part of an effort that would truly benefit mankind.”

About PPPL

PPPL, funded by the U.S. Department of Energy and managed by Princeton University, is a collaborative national center for science and innovation leading to an attractive fusion energy source. Fusion is the process that powers the sun and the stars. In the interior of stars, matter is converted into energy by the fusion, or joining, of the nuclei of light atoms to form heavier elements. At PPPL, physicists use a magnetic field to confine plasma. Scientists hope eventually to use fusion energy for the generation of electricity.
