The collaborative Infineon and E2open project, entitled “Global
Production Network,” established a platform based on E2open’s
Manufacturing Visibility technology for Infineon to achieve global
visibility over its manufacturing related supply chains, involving both
internal and external manufacturing.
“The anticipated impact of the manufacturing visibility with E2open is
significant,” said Dr. Mathias Duemmler, senior director of factory
integration at Infineon. “In addition to the benefits realized so far,
this project has contributed to progress with our process automation
roadmap. This esteemed award honors the partnership between E2open and
Infineon and will certainly boost our successful digital transformation
With the Global Production Network project, E2open and Infineon
connected former siloed manufacturing and enterprise resource planning
(ERP) systems within its widespread network of internal and external
factories and created a holistic view of production, quality control and
material allocation across the supply chain.
Automating the exchange of data between disparate systems will improve
productivity by eliminating the manual and labor-intensive processes of
consolidating spreadsheets and allowing users to focus only on
exceptions that require attention. Streamlined quality processes will
increase profitability, generating higher yields and reducing scrap
costs by identifying defects or non-conformances earlier in the
production cycle. The E2open solution enables availability of accurate
real-time data to many other Infineon business processes and systems.
“E2open considers it an honor to help Infineon achieve its Global
Virtual Factory vision and put in place a technology framework for the
future. This prestigious SICC award is recognition of what two
forward-thinking companies can build together in the pursuit of digital
transformation,” said Michael Farlekas, president and chief executive
officer of E2open. “The E2open platform provides the breadth to meet
Infineon’s immediate needs, the depth to grow with the company as
business processes mature and the agility to accommodate future changes
in corporate strategy.”
