    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    FUJITSU GLOVIA, INC. to Debut  

    Expanded GLOVIA G2 at FabTech  

    Manufacturing ERP Software Gains New Modules for CRM, Production Sequencing, Call Center, PDM Interface, Project Management and Programming Tools

    EL SEGUNDO, CALIF. (May 17, 2016) – FUJITSU GLOVIA will unveil the latest version of its manufacturing ERP software, GLOVIA G2 V3.1 at FABTECH 2017 at Booth A3155 in Chicago, IL.

    GLOVIA G2 V3.1 includes seven new applications along with a number of enhancements to existing GLOVIA G2 modules. Designed for small-, medium- and large-sized manufacturers, including Tier 1, 2 and 3 automotive suppliers, aerospace and defense, capital equipment, electronics, telecommunications, ETO/MTO and other high-volume manufacturers, GLOVIA G2 is available as on-premise ERP software or cloud-based ERP.

    The latest version incorporates seven new applications in a flexible and scalable manufacturing ERP system that reduces, manages and replenishes inventory, streamlines production, cuts lead times, collaborates in real time, integrates supply chains with a manufacturer’s enterprise, and links accurate demand forecasting to production and supply. 

    The seven new applications (modules) delivered in GLOVIA G2 V3.1: 

    Customer Relationship Management (CRM)

    Unlike standalone CRM solutions that offer limited functionality, GLOVIA G2 V3.1 provides out-of-the- box visibility of the full manufacturing ERP software solution. Sales team members gain instant real-time visibility of every bit of information that will help them better serve their customers, including quotes, orders, planned delivery dates, shipments, credit limits and credit status, outstanding invoices, credits, payment disputes, inventory availability, capable-to-promise, and full history on all product quotations, sales, margins, etc.

    The CRM module integrates contact and calendar information on a user’s mobile devices with GLOVIA G2.  Smart menus provide simple touchscreen navigation, which, along with a tablet’s voice-to-text capabilities, make keyboard entry almost a thing of the past.

    Production Sequencing

    The GLOVIA G2 Sequencing module has been designed specifically for Assemble-to-Order, Configure-to-Order and Make- to-Order companies running mixed model production down a single or multiple lines.  It’s the perfect tool for visualizing, creating and managing the mix of products flowing down a production line.
     

    Color visualization instantly provides an indication of risks of stopping the line, removal of bottlenecks and production sequences that will achieve the desired business goals.  The Sequencing module leverages production rules and your planners’ experience and knowledge of the current business conditions to create a well-balanced and optimum production schedule.

    Call Center

    GLOVIA G2 V3.1’s new Call Center module requires minimal effort to quickly record calls and efficiently manage activities in a wide range of business scenarios. When calls are related to equipment issues, GLOVIA G2 provides instant visibility of equipment warranty and extended warranty coverage, enabling efficient resolution of service issues and making call center employees the hero of every customer service call.

    Product Data Management (PDM) Interface

    The new PDM Interface enables the sharing of engineering information between CAD, PDM, PLM and any engineering package with GLOVIA G2.  A visual, color-coded comparison screen enables the easy identification of data differences prior to data exchange and editing of data, including selection of which system and data needs to be updated.  

    Project Management Interface

    The manufacturing ERP system’s new Project Management Interface module enables project information to be shared between GLOVIA G2 and project planning applications using standard Microsoft Project XML formats. A color-coded comparison screen identifies any differences or issues prior to data exchange and enables editing of data and selection of data to be updated.

    Debugger Tool

    GLOVIA G2 Debugger is perfect for medium-to-larger customers who prefer to maintain an in-house development team. This module enables any programmer whether familiar with G2 source code or not to step through their code and examine or modify its state to help track down any issues. It uses a ‘dockable’ user interface and can be used as a Microsoft Visual Studio Add-in.  A toolbar can be attached, or docked, to its parent window, or it can be detached, or floated, in its own mini-frame window.

    Version Control

    GLOVIA G2 Version Control system (also known as a Revision Control System or Development Control Management) allows GLOVIA customers to create and manage a repository of source code of computer programs, with monitored access. Every change made to the source code can be tracked, along with who made the change, why they made it, and references to problems fixed, or enhancement introduced, by the change.

    Version control system is essential for any form of distributed, collaborative development. Whether it is the history of a large software development project, or a small customization - the ability to track each change as it was made, and to reverse changes when necessary, can make all the difference between a well-managed and controlled process and an uncontrolled ‘first come, first served’ system.

    Manufacturing ERP Software Enhancements

    In addition to the seven new ERP software modules, GLOVIA G2 V3.1 features a significant number of new features and enhancements to the existing modules – with the majority based on customer feedback for the continued development of the manufacturing ERP system.

  • Economical and Easy-to-Implement GLOVIA G2 Software Offers Ability to Make Faster Production Line Changes, Ramp Up New Plants Without Need for SAP Retrofits  

    EL SEGUNDO, CALIF. (May 22, 2017) – FUJITSU GLOVIA, INC. has developed a hybrid ERP strategy that enables manufacturers to more quickly, easily and inexpensively make production line changes, expand manufacturing capabilities, add new facilities or implement Lean Manufacturing while continuing to benefit from the operational strengths of their SAP ERP systems.

    The El Segundo company’s GLOVIA G2 manufacturing ERP software has been designed to be fully SAP-compatible, providing manufacturers the opportunity to incorporate a system with superior manufacturing ERP capabilities without disrupting corporate use of SAP for financial, and human resource functions.

    “This solution is ideally suited for organizations with multiple facilities and varied operations, where time to market is such a critical factor in the implementation of various business changes,” said Jim Errington, Executive Vice President of Sales and Service for FUJITSU GLOVIA. “The ease with which GLOVIA G2 can be incorporated in a manufacturing operation can cut implementation time from years to months compared to SAP.”

    While many large, multi-facility companies view SAP as a one-stop ERP solution, the system can add tremendous cost and blow up the intended timetable when companies find opportunities to grow or change their business.  At the same time, SAP, which was originally launched to manage financial operations, lacks the domain expertise of ERP systems, like GLOVIA G2, that were specifically built for manufacturing operations.

    “Implementing GLOVIA G2 enables companies to take advantage of GLOVIA G2’s superior manufacturing ERP capabilities in manufacturing workflow, sequencing, optimization, traceability and pegging,” Errington said. “This solution serves small-to-large companies in a variety of discrete manufacturing industries, including automotive, aerospace & defense, capital equipment, electronics, engineer-to-order/make-to-order, telecommunications and high-volume manufacturing.”

    Benefits of a SAP GLOVIA G2 Hybrid ERP System

    GLOVIA G2 offers a number of advantages that make it an ideal manufacturing ERP solution paired with Corporate SAP applications:

    • Full integration of SAP modules
    • Lower cost of ownership, including licensing, implementation and maintenance cost savings
    • Easy to implement – weeks or months to implement vs. years for SAP
    • Extensive manufacturing operations expertise, especially in Lean Manufacturing, using Kanban, Seiban or other Lean systems
    • Specialized industry-specific modules for ETO/MTO and automotive companies and suppliers

    The cost and time benefits of GLOVIA G2 are of special merit when companies must undergo significant changes to their manufacturing operations.  Designed from the ground up to support and manage manufacturing businesses, GLOVIA G2 provides:

    • Enterprise-wide visibility, with true supply chain transparency, eliminating information silos; a full-set of ERP modules integrating systems and business processes, linking companies to both their customers and suppliers
    • Unmatched flexibility, supporting manufacturing businesses without forcing changes to their business processes
    • Real-time responsiveness, slashing order-to-fulfillment cycle times and getting the right product to the right customer at the right place, time and price
    • Improved efficiency, reducing cost while eliminating excess inventories, boosting productivity and managing resources  

    Implementing GLOVIA G2 in concert with an existing Corporate SAP ERP enables manufacturers to avoid significant SAP change costs with completion of business process changes in a fraction of the time.   

    When to Consider an SAP GLOVIA G2 Hybrid ERP Approach

    • Factory production line changes will require a time-consuming and expensive retrofit of SAP modules
    • Implementing Lean Manufacturing, Kanban or Seiban
    • Seeking a low-risk solution for very complicated problems
    • Adding manufacturing ERP capabilities to multiple facilities
