Apriso (Long Beach, CA) announced general availability of FlexNet 9.6, the company’s next generation manufacturing software platform that offers much more than traditional manufacturing execution systems. New capabilities offer greater benefits to more widely adopt paperless manufacturing processes. The greater process efficiency and standardization that is now possible also meets business needs for faster, more effective New Product Introduction (NPI) while increasing responsiveness to market change. Apriso’s FlexNet 9.6 more readily supports conversion to paperless manufacturing environments. Enhanced role-based electronic work instructions (eWI) can more easily be updated by business users, without the need for IT involvement. Apriso’s manufacturing intelligence solution, or MPI 2.0, provides real-time visibility and improved decision support to better enable flawless operations execution. Apriso’s MPI 2.0, combined with the upgraded FlexNet 9.6, provides manufacturers with a better feedback loop that can increase collaboration between engineering and manufacturing to build new products right the first time – at highest possible quality for the lowest cost. FlexNet 9.6 improves the efficiency of releasing new products to manufacturing by improving change management process efficiency to reduce latency between engineering and manufacturing, critical when launching new products. Better linking the definition of manufacturing processes from Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) to manufacturing ensures process adherence to reduce time to market.
