Apriso, a leading provider of software solutions for sustained manufacturing operational excellence, today announced general availability of FlexNet Maintenance 2.0, an innovative maintenance management solution built on a native Business Process Management (BPM) architecture, in order to achieve and sustain manufacturing excellence.

Best in class manufacturers are now implementing FlexNet Maintenance 2.0 to enable real-time visibility, control and synchronization of maintenance operations with global production, quality, warehouse and labor processes. Improving coordination and collaboration between maintenance and manufacturing operations improves flexibility and responsiveness, resulting in increased equipment uptime and lower manufacturing costs.

“Everyone here at Hitachi is very glad we made the change to Apriso’s FlexNet. To sum it up, FlexNet offers much more flexibility than our previous system (it's living up to its name!) in changing PM schedules, due dates and assignments while at the same time is much more user-friendly,” stated Kristi Dean, Production Engineering at Hitachi Computer Products (America), Inc. “FlexNet gives us the ability to record both the preventive and reactive maintenance history on equipment. This is important, because it gives us a more complete look at what has happened to a piece of equipment, contributing to increased efficiency and improved uptime.”

According to a recent AMR Research study*, manufacturers seek greater agility, real-time visibility and centralized IT services to respond faster to changing market conditions. Applied to maintenance management, the study affirms the need for greater global collaboration across of manufacturing operations management – including a way to standardize and centrally manage maintenance processes.

In alignment with this research, FlexNet Maintenance 2.0 offers expanded capabilities of what maintenance management should comprise, which starts with a unified, platform-based solution that can synchronize maintenance activities with both manufacturing operations (ex: manufacturing execution systems) and other enterprise systems. FlexNet Maintenance 2.0 with its native BPM architecture simplifies end-to-end process creation, standardization and integration to existing enterprise applications, resulting in greater real-time visibility and control to the shop floor.

Apriso has redefined maintenance management by:

• Going beyond a “stove-pipe” view of maintenance by unifying maintenance to enable greater coordination and collaboration across all manufacturing operations;
• Breaking a plant centric focus by enabling a global approach to maintenance management;
• More effectively integrating Maintenance Management with what has traditionally been overlapping ERP-based asset management;
• Delivering a Business Process Management (BPM) architecture which enables significantly greater flexibility in defining, improving and distributing Maintenance Best Practices.

Coordinating maintenance with production, quality and warehouse activities reduces disruptions to operations, increasing equipment uptime and improving productivity. FlexNet’s BPM architecture supports Lean and TPM initiatives by enabling maintenance value streams to be visually prototyped and then implemented as standardized business processes. By reducing non-value add activities such as gathering spare parts and tools or filling out requisitions, engineers get more “wrench” enabling more preventive maintenance without increasing staff, reducing time spent on only break-fix operations.

"It is essential that manufacturers have an enterprise system to maximize operational efficiency while protecting manufacturing assets and meeting important safety and compliance regulations,” said John Fishell, vice president product management at Apriso. “With FlexNet Maintenance 2.0, workflows can be established to include safety instructions, checklists and machine events that ensure standardization and compliance, so best practices can be implemented across the whole organization.”
