Extend Lean Beyond a Single Plant Production Line to all Locations and your Product Supply Network to Maximize your Value Chain
Lean manufacturing has been embraced for over 30 years by the most competitive companies as an essential component of manufacturing excellence. The drive to remove waste has streamlined operations, eliminated idle inventory and helped to achieve continuous process improvement ... each now an accepted element of Lean manufacturing and Six Sigma initiatives.
Apriso's FlexNet products uniquely offer a unified approach to Lean manufacturing that spans the enterprise and extended supply chain. This allows you to streamline not only your local plant floor processes, but all associated processes and material flows beyond the plant and across your enterprise. With FlexNet, you are no longer constrained by applying manual Kanban-based pull or flow tools. Electronic signals can be used to expand Lean programs, enabling you to see, manage and optimize how materials flow through your value chain, adding new efficiency to your Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle across production and supply chain processes. FlexNet can positively impact schedules, quality, equipment utilization and other factors, giving you the ability to manage Lean manufacturing and Lean inventory for a Lean Material Flow across all operations.
