Leading high-end 'infotainment' systems manufacturer to manage global

manufacturing operations with Visiprise Manufacturing

ATLANTA, Feb. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Visiprise, Inc., a leader in integrated manufacturing execution (MES) solutions today announced Harman/Becker Automotive Systems (Harman/Becker), a division of Harman International, has selected Visiprise Manufacturing as their single, full service MES solution for their electronics manufacturing operations. Harman/Becker has completed their initial deployments of the solution at plants in North America and Asia and plans to expand deployments to other North American electronics facilities.

Harman/Becker, a division of Harman International, is a manufacturer of development, production, marketing and integration of high-performance audio, entertainment, information, navigation and communication systems for the automotive and aftermarket industry.

"Harman/Becker conducted a thorough, two-year evaluation process that included the review of 30 MES providers. We narrowed the group to ten potential solutions, and ultimately installed the top three solutions at NPI Plants in the United States and Europe," said Will Bollinger, director of advanced electronics manufacturing at Harman/Becker. "Harman/Becker concluded that Visiprise Manufacturing met our specific MES requirements. Visiprise Manufacturing allows us to maintain a single system that collects critical manufacturing data, streamlines our quality initiatives, and enhances our visibility into manufacturing operations."

Harman/Becker made their evaluations based on a list of 88 key MES solution characteristics. One differentiator for Visiprise Manufacturing was the ability to conduct real-time statistical process control across their manufacturing operations. Integration with SAP was also critical to Harman/Becker's decision along with third-party validation. Harman/Becker also referred to Manufacturing Enterprise Solutions Association (MESA) reports for an independent analysis.

Harman/Becker recently completed successful deployments of Visiprise Manufacturing at their Asia plants and at the Farmington Hills, Michigan's new product introduction (NPI) facility. Future plans include roll outs in their North American electronic facilities, including Harman/Becker's "infotainment" plant in Washington, Missouri (In-Car Entertainment product line) and at their premium sound systems plant in Franklin, Kentucky.

"Visiprise has built a very strong relationship with Harman/Becker by working closely with them to understand their strategic objectives and to provide a solution that helps meet these objectives," said Sean McCloskey, president and chief executive officer of Visiprise. "The international adoption of Visiprise Manufacturing is a true testimonial to how, as partners, we can address manufacturing operations and ultimately drive a solid return on investment for Harman/Becker."
