Apriso Selected To Help New Just-In-Time Sequenced Operations

LONG BEACH, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—November 8, 2006— Apriso(R) Corporation, a provider of adaptive operations execution solutions for manufacturing, announced today that Supplier's City (a Mazon Group company), a third-party logistics provider (3PL) serving the automotive industry from Hermosillo, Mexico, has selected Apriso's FlexNet to extend their logistics execution system to enable delivery of components on a Just-In-Time (JIT) sequenced basis to leading automotive OEMs.

FlexNet is a global manufacturing software platform and suite of applications that allows manufacturers to easily deploy, execute, manage, monitor, track and trace their operations through an adaptive manufacturing process approach. The Apriso solution will provide sequenced shipping and warehousing capabilities, sequenced kitting, pick-to-light and returnable container management functions in support of sequenced shipping to automotive OEM assembly operations. The contract begins immediately and will be implemented in phases over the next six months.

"Today's automotive suppliers operate within very tight production windows," said Fred Thomas, automotive industry director at Apriso. "To meet these strict requirements, suppliers need a solution that manages material flow and production processes maintaining sequence integrity from material receipt through production to JIT delivery. For third party logistics providers like Supplier's City, FlexNet extends its value beyond operations by integrating solutions for industry specific business processes like returnable container tracking, which enables 3PL's to accurately track the location and condition of container assets in support of accurate, on-time round-trip delivery."

Recently a leading automotive manufacturer with operations in Hermosillo issued a mandate to its suppliers that certain parts require delivery on a Just-In-Time sequenced basis. Because of their extended FlexNet implementation, Supplier City is now positioned to meet this new mandate and help their automotive manufacturing customers adapt to quickly changing customer demand.

Supplier's City, originally installed Apriso's FlexNet adaptive operations execution solution in 2005 to help manage receiving, kitting, staging and distribution of raw materials and assembled components. Supplier's City also uses FlexNet to manage customs and importation processes and coordinates transportation requirements for tier two and three automotive suppliers that outsource their warehousing and kitting operations.
