Global competition and increasingly complex supply chain operations place enormous pressure to improve efficiency, accelerate throughput, and increase quality for a lower total cost. Industry-leading manufacturers leverage enterprise manufacturing intelligence solutions to help achieve these objectives, resulting in greater visibility to increase manufacturing excellence across their globally distributed operations.
Apriso delivers this capability with FlexNet Manufacturing Process Intelligence (MPI), a FlexNet application that ensures enterprise manufacturing intelligence is readily available to enable faster decision support. MPI gives you broad, real-time visibility to shorten cycle time, reduce scrap and rework, increase quality, and achieve better schedule adherence. MPI is pre-configured to work with Microsoft Excel. It can also be accessed by other popular reporting and Business Intelligence (BI) tools, including SAP Business Objects and Crystal Reports, among other 3rd party applications. MPI lets you better identify costly bottlenecks or constraints to accelerate decisions that can maximize efficiency, reduce inventory and lower costs.
MPI Intelligence Packs complement MPI to provide “out-of-the-box” visibility through pre-configured analytics, KPIs, dashboards and reports. This capability lets you analyze specific functional areas – either individually or as a unified view – across your manufacturing operations. Learn more about Apriso’s Intelligence Packs:
Delivered as a completely integrated FlexNet solution for enterprise Manufacturing Intelligence or as an enhancement to your existing manufacturing execution system (MES), MPI dramatically reduces the time and cost of collecting and aggregating operational data. Greater operational efficiency lets you readily perform mission-critical analyses on current or historical data with greater precision and accuracy.
Improve Performance on a Global Scale
MPI offers an ideal global solution for measuring and continuously improving manufacturing operations performance. MPI includes pre-configured data mapping, OLAP Cubes and KPIs for consistent, real-time visualization of your operational performance. Engineers can utilize this intelligence to benchmark performance, identify opportunities for process improvement and accelerate root cause analysis (RCA).
MPI offers easy-to-use tools to create and modify analyses that can be shared and deployed across a plant or the entire enterprise. RAP Data Integrator, available as part of MPI, provides a global view of your operations as well as cross-plant visualization, making it possible to more easily compare performance across sites.
Increase Agility and Responsiveness
By combining BPM with intelligence, FlexNet Manufacturing Process Intelligence delivers flexibility, agility and efficiency with data aggregation, contextualization, analysis, visualization and propagation. RAP Data Integrator dramatically reduces the time and cost of integration while reducing dependence on IT. Real-time visibility to all of your manufacturing operations results in greater efficiency, quality and customer satisfaction when responding to changing demand or unexpected events.
