The electronics industry faces an extraordinary amount of product proliferation, ever-shorter product lifecycles, and an industry of constant, rapid product change. Managing these types of environments are among the most difficult challenges in manufacturing. For this reason, we designed Glovia specifically for the global electronics manufacturer.
Glovia is owned by one of its largest customers, Fujitsu — one of the world's largest electronics manufacturers — and we well understand the unique challenges and requirements you must meet. The results speak for themselves: leading customers at sites around the world have used our software to achieve significant benefits in faster times to market, reduced purchase and sales order lead times, and improved customer and supplier collaboration.
The market you serve demands new products at a blinding pace. No other software offered today supports new ways of doing business — such as lean and demand-driven manufacturing — like Glovia. Our extended ERP suite will help your company deliver more value at the same or even a lower price point, and give you a competitive advantage in achieving greater growth and profitability.
With Glovia, electronics and high technology manufacturers can:
- Streamline and automate business processes
- Integrate and manage operations
- Slash costs and reduce inventory
- Exceed customer expectations
- Increase visibility
- Boost productivity
- Improve responsiveness
Glovia can scale from large to small operations easily with rapid implementation that will not disrupt business operations. You can maintain standard, average and actual costs — and simulated costs — for analysis and evaluation. Glovia will simplify production management for mass customization and provide the tools you need to streamline your entire supply chain. All in all, there is no better way to compete globally while answering your customers' needs for ever more specialized products.
Outsourcing has forced electronics companies to become virtual manufacturers by focusing design, marketing and distribution strengths rather than manufacturing capabilities. With Glovia, you can identify materials and assemblies required for an outsourced operation, create purchase orders specifying the needed materials, and track the components until the finished products are received. Glovia Collaboration & Integration solutions ensure seamless information exchanges with partners and suppliers via XML transactions over Fujitsu's ultra-powerful Interstage solution.
Glovia solutions support a full range of standards and services including WSDL, XML, ebXML, J2EE, CORBA, & RosettaNet.
Glovia also enables continuous engineering, and supports ever-evolving product configuration and will compress the time it takes for changes to reach the factory floor. The engineering module is exceptionally powerful and manages complex and ever-changing Bills of Material (BoMs), which impact material needs and manufacturing requirements. Another powerful feature of the solution is its support for the need for customers to configure their own products.
Glovia Seiban features control items built in mass customization mode at every level of the production process. To meet a variety of manufacturing requirements, a Seiban number can specify a single item or group of items, and can also be used to identify prototypes and engineering changes throughout production.
We back Glovia with world-class implementation services, education and technical support. Our professionals are dedicated to helping you realize a rapid return on your technology investment through a wide range of business benefits.
