Partnership enables Japanese manufacturers to achieve better visibility and centralized control across their global sites from Japan-based operations.

Apriso, the leading provider of manufacturing software solutions, announced an implementation partnership was signed with NEC Corporation, a leader in the integration of IT and network technologies.

As an Apriso partner trained to install FlexNet solutions, NEC will offer Apriso’s next generation Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) as a solution for manufacturers in the Japan market.

Demand has steadily grown in Japan for operational platforms to centrally manage and continuously improve manufacturing operations that span to a global scale. Under this scenario, NEC’s new solution for manufacturers, “NEC Manufacturing Co-CreationProgram,” formed as a partnership with Apriso’s global manufacturing applications, can help customers better collaborate across sites. This synergy of capabilities was a driving force behind the consummation of this partnership.

“By partnering with Apriso, NEC gains access to advanced technology and business process management capabilities embedded within Apriso’s manufacturing solutions. Our partnership can provide comprehensive support for not only Japanese domestic sites, but also those operating overseas, helping our clients better manage their factory networks – especially those located outside of Japan,” explained Yukihiro Sagawa, general manager ofManufacturing and Process Industries Solutions Development Division at NEC. “The scope of activities we will embark on range from the re-building of business processes in the production field to the implementation of new global IT systems.”

“We are highly honored to announce this partnership with NEC. By working with NEC, with its considerable experience and technological influence in Japan’s manufacturing market, Apriso can better support clients seeking to address today’s top business challenges, including the optimization of global production, reducing lead-times as well as inventory stock reduction,“ commented Gerry Fosnick, general manager of Field Operations at Apriso, Japan.
