Ficomirrors selects HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform

Ficomirrors, a global supplier to automakers and a part of Ficosa, has selected the HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform to improve production efficiency.
HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platformFicosa’s just-in-sequence (JIS) manufacturing strategy aims to create a flexible production cycle by ensuring that the appropriate components and parts arrive at the production line in the right sequence just-in-time for assembly.

The JIS manufacturing strategy is designed to reduce the production time, eliminate supply buffers, and significantly lower inventory costs. Running JIS manufacturing requires advanced logistics and flawless communication between customers and suppliers, and consequently it also demands a technology environment that is equally flexible, responsive, and scalable.

“To ensure execution of the just-in-sequence manufacturing system, we selected HPE GreenLake to build an IT environment that was able to handle any workload on demand, facilitate fast and seamless data sharing, and bolster our flexible approach,” Michał Kasak, IT Manager at Ficomirrors, said in a statement.

Infomex, an HPE Gold Partner, has recommended the HPE GreenLake platform as the best fit to meet both reliability and flexibility requirements. HPE GreenLake enables customers to avoid large-scale investments thanks to a flexible IT consumption model.

As a result, the company will be able to reduce the total cost of ownership, significantly boost efficiency of the manufacturing cycle and reduce time to market and ensure competitiveness in the fast-changing world.

“Our customers are looking to build flexible, scalable IT environments in order to support the changing demands of their businesses and at the same time have the reassurance of knowing where their data is located,” said Tomasz Szewczyk, Sales Manager at HPE.

HPE said GreenLake business is rapidly growing with over $5.2 billion in total contract value and 900 partners selling HPE GreenLake. Today, HPE GreenLake has about 1200 enterprise customers across 50 countries in all industry sectors.
