Apriso Announces FlexNet Just-In-Sequence

Synchronization of production and supply chain processes expands Lean

manufacturing initiatives, delivering the right part at the right time

in the right sequence

LONG BEACH, Calif.–(EMWNews)–Apriso, a leading provider of adaptive software solutions for global

Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM), today announced availability

of FlexNet®

Just-In-Sequence (JIS), an application now available with the release of

FlexNet Version 9.4 Service Pack 1 Operations Execution System (see: Press

Release Introducing FlexNet 9.4 SP1). The firms

expertise gained from extensive implementations in the automotive and

industrial equipment industries has provided valuable insight into how

to best synchronize material flows with high product variability between

production and supply chain processes, helping to expand Lean

manufacturing practices.

FlexNet JIS lets manufacturers integrate and control complex sequencing

requirements generated from a myriad of business processes, such as

those involved with the sourcing, fabrication, sub-assembly, production

and shipping of materials. The sequence can be created in FlexNet,

received directly from a customer broadcast, imported through an

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) or Advanced Planning & Scheduling

(APS) system, or traditional Electronic Data Interchange (EDI). FlexNet

JIS manages assembly, manufacturing and logistics to control the

sequence of parts, error-proof operations and collect traceability and

genealogy information, helping to support Continuous Improvement and

regulatory initiatives.

As business requirements change assembly, shipping or delivery

schedules, FlexNet JIS will perform the necessary adjustments

including validation tests using embedded Poka-Yoke

or error-proofing to ensure inbound and

outbound processes are executed in the right order with the right

materials at the right time.

Unlike traditional sequencing applications that tend to have a more

narrow focus, FlexNet

Just-In-Sequence enables robust synchronization between internal

manufacturing, warehouse and quality management systems as well as

external supply chain processes. Offering value across all manufacturing

operations, FlexNet JIS is the industrys only

sequencing application with comprehensive interlocking traceability and

an integrated quality management system. Deployable as needed, FlexNet

JIS lets manufacturers execute sequenced production, supply chain and

warehouse business processes to:

  • Receive to Sequence

  • Pick to Sequence

  • Assemble to Sequence

  • Manufacture to Sequence

  • Ship to Sequence

FlexNet JIS offers a unique sequencing

solution to ensure receiving, production and shipment processes are

executed seamlessly, enabling the right part to be in the right place at

the right time and in the

right order, comments Tiago Wright, product

manager at Apriso. By leveraging the

knowledge and experience gained within Aprisos

automotive deployments, FlexNet Just-In-Sequence can now additionally

support manufacturers in other industries such as consumer goods and

aerospace and defense, helping them to reduce lead times, improve

operational efficiency and remove waste as part of their ongoing Lean



FlexNet Just-In-Sequence is now available for immediate shipment.

Pricing is based on the number of sites, the quantity of resources at

each site and the modules deployed.
