Dassault Systèmes has announced that Alps Electric selected Dassault Systèmes’ DELMIA Apriso Global Traceability (GT) to improve the precision of traceability across global manufacturing operations.

Alps Electric Co is a general manufacturer of electronic components that supplies about 40,000 different electronic components to more than 2,000 manufacturers of home appliances, mobile devices, automobiles and environment and energy worldwide. In order to strengthen its overall global competitiveness, Alps has implemented DELMIA Apriso Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) and Manufacturing Process Intelligence solutions since 2013. With the adoption, Alps successfully established a common global foundation for standardising and continuously improving its business and manufacturing operation processes.

In today’s automobile industry, global recall management has become an essential piece of their on-going business. This need is driving for a common platform strategy, requiring the industry players to equip their operations with a new level of global trace capability.

Alps, based on Dassault Systèmes’ DELMIA Apriso MOM solution, captures real-time events regarding 4M (Man, Machine, Material, Method) across global operations. GT then consolidates this data into a single repository to deliver full visibility on an end-to-end basis, as an enterprise traceability system. Alps selected DELMIA Apriso Global Traceability because of the application’s short implementation cycle, proven machine integration capability and overall architecture that meet big data requirements from various source systems.

DELMIA Apriso Global Traceability (GT) enables manufacturing companies to track and trace all manufacturing events across their global supply network, including suppliers, subcontract operations, in-house operations and end customer operations. The solution is designed to capture all events of interest from disparate source systems without rip and replace, provide real-time analytical capability to gain insights from big data and become the foundation for IIoT-enabled smart factories.

The ultimate goal is to leverage the global traceability information, combined with other manufacturing data, to reduce the overall cost of quality, standardise quality during ramp up phase of new product introduction (to shorten product lifecycles) and eliminate waste from global manufacturing operations.

GT aligns with Alps’ strategy of enhancing their existing Apriso MOM solution, which is in the process of being rolled out to all manufacturing sites globally.
