Apriso Corp. has successfully implemented its FlexNet(R) manufacturing and logistics management software at Saint-Gobain Sekurit, the leading Tier 1 supplier of glass to the automotive and transport markets, Apriso said on 29 June 2005. “We have implemented Apriso“s FlexNet system to provide a completely unified solution for manufacturing and logistics across 30 of our European manufacturing and distribution sites,” said Mr. Hans Cordes, CEO of Saint-Gobain Sekurit. “After initially deploying the system in 8 Spanish sites, we were able to roll out German and French versions to another 22 sites in a 13 month period. We were able to deploy these first 30 sites across Europe in less than 2 years because we implemented a single supply chain solution of SAP R/3 and FlexNet. We deployed a centralized ERP application tightly coupled with FlexNet“s decentralized manufacturing and logistics solution to allow Saint-Gobain to manage its operations as one dispersed supply network. With FlexNet we have enforced manufacturing consistency and “best practices“ across our operations. We now have real-time visibility of manufacturing, order, and logistics status from anywhere in the company. We are rolling out the system to other geographies as we speak. FlexNet provides us with a substantial advantage in meeting our customers“ requirements.”
