SAP has entered into a global reseller agreement with Visiprise, a vendor of software for integrated manufacturing operations. Under the deal, SAP will resell and market the Visiprise Manufacturing product under the name SAP Manufacturing Execution by Visiprise. The Visiprise tool features capabilities for route enhancement, traceability and shop-floor quality management. It will now be combined with integration via the SAP composite application known as xApp Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence. The combined offering is a Java EE-based, turn-key manufacturing system that is intended to boost business-process efficiency, reduce the cost of quality and ensure compliance with government regulations, SAP said. Visiprise Manufacturing first won SAP's endorsement in January of this year. In February, the Visiprise packaged composite application known as ERP Shop Floor Integration 1.0 achieved "SAP xApps Certified--Powered by SAP NetWeaver" status.
