As a manufacturer today, you recognize and understand that traditional approaches to managing operations are no longer sufficient to meet the difficult challenge of continuously achieving and improving manufacturing excellence. Leading companies are turning to a broader type of solution to enable manufacturing transformation – one that encompasses not just the plant floor, but also the warehouse, quality and material flow throughout the production process and product supply network. Only then can you have the control and insight needed to achieve and sustain manufacturing excellence.
Apriso calls this approach Manufacturing Operations Management, or MOM. Apriso is unique in providing this capability across a manufacturing enterprise via a single, unified solution that operates with the characteristics of an IT platform. Apriso manages and executes enterprise-wide manufacturing operations processes, including those associated with production, quality, warehouse, maintenance, labor and the supply chain. By delivering far greater functionality that a traditional Manufacturing Execution System, Apriso provides enterprise business planning systems with the necessary real-time visibility and control over all manufacturing operations to improve flexibility while reducing costs and increasing quality.
The Apriso suite of applications can provide a comprehensive solution for achieving manufacturing operations excellence, and can be deployed, modified and extended to both small and large implementations. Apriso is built on a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) powered by rich business process authoring and management capabilities, so it fills the gap between ERP and manufacturing operations execution as a global, end-to-end solution for true manufacturing transformation.
