"Apriso provides us with the ability to track our value stream in real time, alarm and notify people when we aren't performing at the level to get us to our "to be" state; what we find is this allows us to slowly, but surely, shrink the segments of our value stream and increase our cycle times and improve our processes to give us greater productivity. One of the most significant examples of reductions was our inventory reduction at over 60%, which has allowed us to free up 96,000 square feet of floor space in one of our factories where we could add production capacity."
