Apriso Introduces Business Process Lifecycle Management(TM) for Manufacturers

Press release date: Jan 13, 2009

Enhanced FlexNet Global Process Manager delivers comprehensive governance across the lifecycle of global manufacturing processes

(LONG BEACH, CA - January 13, 2009) - Apriso®, a leading provider of adaptive software solutions for global Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM), today announced the MOM industry's first global approach to Business Process Lifecycle Management(TM), now available with the software provider's upgraded FlexNet® Global Process Manager application. Manufacturers using FlexNet as a platform for global manufacturing Business Process Management (BPM) can more efficiently create, manage and retire business processes while governing standardized best practices across a broad scope of manufacturing operations performed at multiple physical locations.

Historically, manufacturers have been challenged with the creation, standardization and governance of business processes, including how to best identify, maintain and distribute those considered "best-in-class." This task is further complicated when processes span multiple departments or when they must be replicated across various global locations. FlexNet Global Process Manager delivers an innovative approach to business process governance - as part of a lifecycle - by leveraging a BPM architecture "natively" embedded within the FlexNet platform.

"Manufacturers who use FlexNet's BPM capabilities to holistically manage and standardize the lifecycle of business processes across their enterprise can quickly update processes wherever they may reside, improving agility to changing market conditions," states John Fishell, director product management at Apriso. "This proven approach enables significant first mover competitive advantage, improved operational performance through global continuous improvement initiatives and reduced IT costs from a global approach to governance of business processes."

FlexNet Global Process Manager Improvements:
--Enhanced security options and electronic signatures, to assure proper governance of changes
--Automated checks, validations and deployment preparation, to eliminate human errors
--Tracked versioning and change management, to adhere with regulatory compliance initiatives
--Standardized business processes at one location or many, to achieve global consistency
--Advanced execution of continuous improvement programs, from the top-down or bottom-up, to support streamlined, automated best practices distribution
