Manufacturing software provider Apriso has launched version 9.5 of Flexnet for business process management with advanced blueprinting and prototyping capabilities and new user interfaces.

John Fishell, vice-president of product management at Apriso, said: ‘This latest release of Flexnet helps cross-functional teams better collaborate through improved role separation, advanced blueprinting and prototyping capabilities.

‘New manufacturing processes can be easily mapped, prototyped and evaluated by business users to ensure business objectives are met.

‘These new processes may be implemented locally or globally through a Center of Excellence, accelerating the time-to-value and effectiveness of continuous process improvement,’ he added.

Apriso said its customers are now reaping the benefits of synchronised global manufacturing.

For example, a consumer goods manufacturer now performs engineering change requests (ECRs) as often as three times a week, impacting operations spanning production, warehousing and quality across 20-plus plants for improved operational performance, higher quality and greater profitability.

Further, a large automotive powertrain customer is implementing Apriso at four sites per month, benefitting from an accelerated time-to-value of their Flexnet IT investment.

Expanded capabilities of Flexnet 9.5 include: advanced blueprinting and prototyping features that support an agile approach to continuous process improvement; improved monitoring and process visualisation for multi-plant deployments to accelerate new product introductions; enhanced manufacturing process management capabilities to ease the management of processes extending across a manufacturer’s operations; better tracking and monitoring of business process lifecycles for improved process governance and a lower total cost of compliance; and a redesigned user interface for reduced project risk and greater productivity.
