Infor CloudSuite Industrial to drive standardization and reduce operational workloads

 

TOKYO, JAPAN – Media
OutReach
 – 3 December 2020 – Infor Japan K.K. (Head Office: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo; President:
Shinya Miura), the Japanese subsidiary of Infor, a global leader in business
cloud software specialized by industry, today announced that Fujikin K.K. (Head
Office: Yashio, Saitama Prefecture; President: Kenji Arakane), a metal-processing
company specializing in automotive components, has selected Infor CloudSuite
Industrial, Infor’s cloud enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution for
manufacturing industries, as part of its business expansion plan with the aim
of standardizing its production management processes and reducing operational
workloads.  The producer of 8-million
automotive components per month, Fujikin’s high-quality parts are used by 17 of
the world’s leading automakers, including BMW, Audi and Porsche and every
Japanese automaker.

■ Background

- Advertisement -

Founded in 1955, Fujikin is a metal processing company
specializing in drive-train and functional components for automotive
transmissions, steering and other systems.  For its 8 million automotive components
produced each month for its 150 different products, the management system for
supporting this production to date has been manually assembled. As it expands
this business to further service the world’s leading automakers going forward,
Fujikin found that its current system, designed for specific business partners,
is unable to rapidly respond to the requirements of new projects. The system
was also dependent on individual skills and on operation by a limited number of
employees. There was a pressing need, therefore, to standardize and reduce the
workload of the core production management system of its business.

In light of this, Fujikin needed a cloud ERP solution
that came packaged with the functionality for supporting its existing business,
including the Toyota Production System (TPS) scheduling that it was already
using. The solution also needed to support future business requirements and
reduce operational workloads through the cloud. After careful evaluation, the
company selected Infor CloudSuite Industrial, Infor’s cloud ERP solution for
manufacturing industries, as its new production management system.

■ Reasons for adoption


Infor CloudSuite Industrial is a software-as-a-service
(SaaS)-based ERP suite specialized for the manufacturing of industrial
products. The functionalities required for this industry are purpose-built into
a beautifully-designed user interface, and optimized and delivered on the
highly-reliable Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform.

Fujikin adopted Infor CloudSuite Industrial as a cloud
ERP solution focused on production management, with support for purchasing,
sales and inventory management. A huge advantage is that Infor CloudSuite
Industrial’s existing standard functions, such as TPS-compliant production
scheduling, already accommodate 85% of its existing business. It also had the
ability to support the requirements of planned future business partners without
customization, and could help standardize systems that do not rely on specific
employees. Through this standardization and use of the cloud, Fujikin currently
expects to reduce its workload by 170 man-hours per month.

Neoaxis Co., Ltd., an Infor partner with extensive
knowledge of cloud solutions and Infor’s ERP for manufacturing industries, is
supporting Fujikin through its adoption of Infor CloudSuite Industrial. The
solution is expected to be fully operational by January next year. Through its
proof-of-concept service, Neoaxis has also standardized business processes
tailored to the system by highlighting gaps and issues during actual operation.

■ Comment from Kenji Arakane, President, Fujikin K.K.

“Going forward, Fujikin will continue supporting
automakers around the world and making the world a better place through Japanese
manufacturing expertise. To achieve this, we needed to adopt Infor’s SaaS
solution so we can always utilize the latest industry-specific functions as we
evolve. With the support of Infor and Neoaxis, we are laying the foundations
for driving standardization and rapidly expanding our business.”
