Tesla Accelerates Continuous Improvement with Apriso
LONG BEACH, CA – February 23, 2012 – Apriso, a leading provider of manufacturing software solutions, today announced that Tesla Motors is implementing the company’s FlexNet Manufacturing Process Intelligence (MPI) as an operational intelligence and analytics solution to complement its existing FlexNet Manufacturing Execution System (MES). Real-time visibility to manufacturing performance combined with comprehensive operational intelligence data enables greater production efficiency and cost effective, expanded continuous process improvement.
Tesla’s goal is to accelerate the world’s transition to electric mobility with a full range of increasingly affordable electric cars. Accordingly, their manufacturing operations must support this vision by remaining highly agile and advanced. In September 2010, Apriso announced Tesla Motors’ decision to implement FlexNet as their platform for manufacturing operations. Today’s announcement reflects a continued perspective that Apriso’s platform-based approach to manufacturing operations enables their manufacturing vision.
“Tesla Motors delivers exceptionally well-designed and engineered products. Apriso’s Manufacturing Process Intelligence solution can help ensure the highest quality in Model S,” said Gilbert Passin, Tesla Vice President of manufacturing. “One of the benefits of a platform-based approach to manufacturing operations is the ease of adding new or updated capabilities. MPI can provide Tesla Motors with real-time visibility into manufacturing performance to immediately contain costs and identify opportunities for continuous process improvement.”
A challenge facing manufacturers is how to best capture and integrate manufacturing intelligence data when operations consist of multiple MES applications and instances. A labyrinth of IT systems adds complexity to data aggregation and master data management at the enterprise level. As Tesla Motors is planning for growth, Apriso’s MPI addresses this challenge by the fact that all applications share a common platform, so data is automatically standardized, enabling actual real-time visibility.
As an extension of their FlexNet manufacturing operations platform, Tesla Motors is now embedding advanced manufacturing intelligence into every production process used in both Powertrain and Manufacturing Assembly, including those of its highly anticipated Model S Sedan.
“We are delighted to expand our partnership with Tesla Motors by putting in place Apriso’s highly sophisticated intelligence and analytics solution. Real-time visibility into operational performance translates into competitive advantage in the rapidly evolving zero-emission EV automotive segment,” said Fred Thomas, Industry Director for Automotive and Cleantech at Apriso.
