Built on the vendorís FlexNet platform, the new tool helps manufacturers to manage the complexities of plant operations without the need for paper. According to Apriso, engineers can better interact with shop-floor operations, by updating design and manufacturing instructions without the use of paper-based sign-off processes. Approvals can be streamlined through digital representations. Manufacturers can better manage electronic work instructions, engineering change orders, new-product introductions and manufacturing intelligence, Apriso said. The app includes global traceability and containment capability, captured and delivered in real time.
