Based on its recent analysis of industrial mobility applications in discrete industries, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Dassault Systèmes with the 2014 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for New Product Innovation Leadership. Dassault Systèmes' unique manufacturing operations management solution, comprising the Apriso product portfolio, offers a unified framework and diverse set of applications to monitor and optimize operations across the production floor and extended supply chain.
Unlike most mobile solutions, which have been predominantly limited to field service, supply chain and warehouse management, the extended functionality of a DELMIA Apriso solution allows key enterprise personnel to view, control, and manage multiple production lines, facilities, business units, and plants across the globe.
The solution is finding increasing acceptance across discrete industries because of its seamless compatibility with multiple mobile platforms; cost-effective implementation using commercial, off-the-shelf devices; and user-friendly, role-based dashboards.
"As BYOD (bring your own device) takes precedence across discrete industries, the ability to use commercial mobile devices in complex industrial environments rather than expensive, industrial-grade tablets provides end users with a cost-effective approach to monitor their operational processes and equipment on the production floor," said Frost & Sullivan Senior Research Analyst Rahul Vijayaraghavan. "Furthermore, the user-friendly interface of an Apriso solution allows diverse personnel across the facility to customize their dashboard to monitor and validate key performance indicators, such as line effectiveness, capacity requirements, utilization rates, and process efficiency."
As manufacturing and production facilities continue to witness global expansions and new process additions, Dassault Systèmes' scalable framework to amass high volumes of data will foster greater market acceptance while providing a positive user experience.
"Using its manufacturing process intelligence (MPI) in conjunction with the online analytical processing (OLAP) database, Apriso solutions can streamline the collation of high-volume data from multiple plants and translate the data into profit insights a key requirement in today's competitive landscape," said Frost & Sullivan Senior Research Analyst Srikanth MS. "Apriso's manufacturing mobility solution has been successfully implemented in industries with intricate manufacturing processes, such as food and beverage (F&B) and aerospace and defense (A&D), which allows customers to manage shift changes appropriately, reduce downtime of operations, and facilitate end-to-end traceability."
Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has developed an innovative element in a product. The award recognizes the value-added features of the product and the increased ROI, which, in turn, increases customer acquisition.
Frost & Sullivan's Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for outstanding achievement in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and product development.
