Glovia Delivers Comprehensive Materials Management and Product Planning

Glovia International, a subsidiary of Fujitsu Limited and a leading provider of extended ERP solutions for engineer-to-order and high volume manufacturers, announced today, additional manufacturing management capabilities available in the latest release of their extended ERP solution, glovia.com. The new version, glovia.com v9, stems from extensive customer input and direction from Fujitsu, who is not only Glovia’s parent company but its largest reseller, to build and expand upon the materials management and product planning functionality of previous versions of the product. v9 Manufacturing Management provides the control required to manage all facets of material and production planning. It includes both finite and infinite capacity planning capabilities to help develop realistic schedules. The solution also includes powerful shop floor functionality to track and manage each step of the manufacturing process. New enhanced substitution capabilities enable selection of vendor purchasing substitutions to be bought. To support these enhancements, MRP/MPS has been modified to include the appropriate planning considerations based on these items and their exclusions and exceptions. v9 also provides additional allocation flexibility enabling the system to be set to plan orders on a first-in first-out basis, with orders planned as they are entered, or planned in batches, taking priority into account. To improve operational visibility all planning documents have time fields added down to a new level of granularity with a work start time and work stop time for each day. To gain planning date and time granularity lead times are now expressed in days or hours and fixed lead times can be expressed in 15-minute increments. Three new workbenches have been designed to provide granular visibility of inventory requirements for work, sales and transfer orders. Each workbench has drill down capabilities for enhanced granular management with orders displayed in date and time sequence with status and availability. Other glovia.com Manufacturing Management benefits include: Increased operational visibility and control Reduced inventories of finished goods and works-in-progress Lowered manufacturing costs from increased resource utilization Reduced production bottlenecks and idle equipment Improved on-time delivery performance “The factory floor is the center of manufacturer’s supply chain, where customer demands, production resources and supply shipments meet,” comments Navin Goel, Vice President of Products for Glovia International. “It is critical to succeed in this environment and the enhanced management capabilities provide the flexibility and control to achieve a production plan that successfully balances the needs of sales, manufacturing, finance and customers.” About Glovia International Glovia International, Inc., a subsidiary of Fujitsu Limited (Tokyo Stock Exchange: 6702), is one of the world's most experienced and solidly backed providers of extended ERP solutions for businesses of any size - from small and mid-sized companies to global enterprises.
