Alps Electric Selects Apriso for Manufacturing Intelligence
TOKYO --(Business Wire)--
Apriso, a leading provider of manufacturing software solutions, today
announced that Alps Electric Co., Ltd., a global manufacturer of
high-quality electronic components for mobile devices, industrial
equipment and automobiles, has selected FlexNet
Manufacturing Process Intelligence (MPI) for manufacturing
intelligence, analytics and reporting.
MPI supports manufacturing companies by providing real-time visibility
to manufacturing operations. MPI consolidates the management and
reporting of various data in global manufacturing operations into
intelligence for improved decision support. Apriso's Enterprise
Manufacturing Intelligence application is built on the Microsoft (News - Alert) BI
stack that uses SQL Server Enterprise Edition.
Today's announcement reflects the power of Apriso's manufacturing
operations platform, which is designed to address Alps Electric's
requirements to shorten lead times and reduce idle stock and inventory
on a global scale. Apriso's MPI solution can indicate real-time points
for improvement and provide actionable insights, which can then be
performed at each of Alps Electric's manufacturing operations plants.
"We believe Apriso has much experience in global solutions for
manufacturing operations - and is in fact a pioneer of such solutions.
By using advanced manufacturing intelligence to consolidate multi-modal
analytics, we expect Apriso's MPI to enabe not only reduced reporting
work by each workgroup at each site, but to also consolidate these
reports at an enterprise-level," said Mr. Hirotaka Ibaraki, Project
Manager of Alps Electric Co., Ltd. "In the end, we expect MPI to
shorten process improvement cycles."
"We are highly honored that Alps Electric has decided to implement
Apriso's Manufacturing Process Intelligence solution, MPI, to enhance
their manufacturing intelligence. MPI can help Alps Electric to further
elevate the company's operational excellence and make the next leap
forward on a global scale," stated Gerry Fosnick, General Manager of
Field Operations for Apriso Japan.
The partnership with Alps Electric and Apriso was first publicized in
March 2012 when Apriso
announced Alps Electric selected FlexNet to streamline their global
manufacturing operations in order to improve visibility and efficiency
across their 17 plants located around the world. They are currently
implementing the first five sites.
