Manufacturing ERP System Provides Aerospace and Defense Companies with Advanced Management Capabilities
EL SEGUNDO, CALIF. (February 9, 2015) – FUJITSU GLOVIA, Inc. will demonstrate the advanced capabilities of its GLOVIA G2 manufacturing ERP system at AeroDef Manufacturing with Composites Manufacturing Trade Show, Booth #410, on Feb. 9-10 at the Long Beach, Calif., Convention Center, and follow up with an Aerospace and Defense Industry-targeted Webinar on Feb. 25 showcasing GLOVIA G2’s Project Management capabilities.
The El Segundo company plans to showcase various GLOVIA G2 ERP modules that have been specially designed to manage the complex engineering and production requirements of manufacturers in the aerospace and defense sector, including Project Resource Planning, Project Accounting, Quality and Engineering Change.
“Based on many years of working with aerospace and defense customers, we recognized the specialized needs of these businesses, and developed an ERP system that can manage lot/serial traceability, planning of component items while engineering is still in process and super high-quality control of engineering changes, among other requirements,” said James Gorham, Executive Vice President.
“The high level of control afforded by GLOVIA G2 makes it a superior, yet cost-effective, offering in manufacturing ERP systems for aerospace and defense companies.”
GLOVIA G2’s Project Management suite provides Aerospace and Defense manufacturers with full accounting of projects throughout their lifecycle, including:
• Establishing project tasks and budget
• Tracking project progress (activities, cost)
• Date reconciliation of material or resource changes
• Monitoring actual project costs vs. budgeted costs
• Performing progress billing during life of the project
• Managing installation, maintenance, repair, and service
• Performing impact analysis
Among the company’s long-time customers is the National Ignition Facility (NIF) of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in Livermore, Calif., which has used FUJITSU GLOVIA’s ERP system for inventory control for more than 10 years.
The National Ignition Facility is the world’s largest laser research facility, with 4 million components, 102,000 serial controlled items, 6,000 sub-assemblies, 192 laser beams and one assembly.
“NIF is a great example of the vast capabilities of GLOVIA G2 to manage complex engineering environments,” Gorham said.
