Apriso, which provides adaptive software solutions for global manufacturing operations management, has added a Scandinavian company to its portfolio of tobacco industry clients.
Scandinavian Tobacco is implementing the Apriso FlexNet solution, says Dariusz Kudzia, Apriso's senior director of field operations for Central and Eastern Europe.
"The concept of a company needing to plan production several months in advance has quickly become a thing of the past," he says. "Increasingly, manufacturers must respond quickly to demand fluctuations, while still maintaining the highest levels of quality. Furthermore, manufacturing requirements have only become more complex, with increasingly diverse and complex product requirements to best serve local markets, as well as regulations mandating better traceability and reporting standards."
Scandinavian Tobacco will leverage the Apriso system for real-time access to its shop floor, recording the processes performed by each shop floor machine and worker. This data will flow between the shop floor and the executive suite, delivering the necessary visibility to manage operations, synchronize production and optimize performance.
