SAN JOSE, CALIF. — August 27, 2019 — 42Q, a leading provider of cloud manufacturing solutions, announced today that its cloud-based manufacturing execution system (MES) has achieved ‘Built for NetSuite’ status. Built using the Oracle NetSuite SuiteCloud Computing platform, the new SuiteApp allows customers to enhance factory operations, achieve real-time visibility into factory activity and improve compliance.
Built for NetSuite is a program for NetSuite SuiteCloud Developer Network (SDN) partners that provides them with the information, resources and methodology required to help them verify that their applications and integrations meet NetSuite standards and best practices. The Built for NetSuite program is designed to give NetSuite customers additional confidence that SuiteApps have been built to meet these standards.
With the new SuiteApp, NetSuite customers can benefit from:
- Faster deployment: Users can simply install the 42Q SuiteApp, configure the 42Q MES platform according to their production environment, and quickly gain access to factory floor data, end-user analytics and reporting in as little as six weeks.
- Integrated reporting: Information on sales and work orders from NetSuite are integrated with critical manufacturing information, such as bill of materials data, configuration parameters and quantities to enable seamless operations on the factory floor. In addition, performance data can be tracked at key stages of production within the MES platform and immediately shared back to NetSuite to help customers improve operational efficiency.
- Global factory and supply chain visibility: Enables manufacturing executives to stay updated on the status of work in progress levels and other key metrics by remotely connecting to a ‘digital twin’ of a factory floor. Pre-programmed alerts can also prompt operations teams about changing conditions in real time. In addition, visibility can be extended across the global supply chain through real-time status updates from third-party suppliers that are also using the 42Q MES platform.
- Improved production and compliance: All equipment, materials and worker activities can be scanned via bar code and loaded directly into the MES cloud platform to control processes and help eliminate errors at each stage of the production process. In addition, a comprehensive historical record of all operator actions, test data, in-process data, and component data is stored and accessible via the cloud to ensure quality and regulatory compliance.
“To remain competitive, business decisions need to be made faster today than ever before,” said Rajeev Gollarahalli, chief business officer, 42Q. “With this new SuiteApp, we are giving our customers real-time visibility into production metrics for manufacturing facilities worldwide. This will help our customers improve decision making and increase the efficiency of their operations.”
42Q operates between an ERP system and manufacturing equipment in a factory, enabling simpler and cost-effective implementations of smart factories. To date, 42Q has connected more than 25,000 manufacturing devices and 60 factories globally for improved visibility, efficiency and quality.
“Agility is a critical success factor for organizations globally and this is especially true in industries like manufacturing where it’s a must to have a complete view of factory operations,” said Guido Haarmans, VP, SuiteCloud Developer Network and Partner Programs, Oracle NetSuite. “With solutions like 42Q’s SuiteApp, manufacturers will be able to improve and simplify complex manufacturing processes.”
