Apriso unlocks data for Pull manufacturing

Manufacturing software firm Apriso has launched a system to help manufacturers to increase responsiveness and agility by better leveraging “Pull” triggered manufacturing and supply chain processes.

This process-based system uses real-time operational data and executes pull processes, resulting in “smarter” pull and Kanban signals that can enhance operational performance.

Apriso reckons that Kanban systems which are used to trigger just-in-time  operations in lean manufacturing, typically only rely on simple and basic measures – for example, if a parts bin is empty, place an order.

The Smart-Pull system uses FlexNet’s Manufacturing Process Intelligence to incorporating a broader scope of actual events or historical performance, such as order fluctuations, supplier quality performance or employee knowledge and inputs.
