Manufacturing companies make an effort to share and integrate with their partners. Most of them rely on a highly manual process and information from a tangle of Enterprise Systems, Workflow, Web and Legacy Applications. The objective being to coordinate order fulfillment across corporate divisions and external partners.
FraME enables integration of product lifecycle with manufacturing execution & supply chain processes that leverage an approach that helps overcoming these challenges, through our process orchestration framework. FraME helps orchestrate business processes in a manufacturing environment that provides a high degree of flexibility for change with good visibility into the business process execution.
Excerpts from the Paper
HCL’s existing framework “SynAps” provides a holistic framework for improving manufacturing operations efficiency and collaboration between engineering and manufacturing systems. However our survey on SynAps indicates that 86% of our customers want to address Process Orchestration; 65% of the customers need Vertical specific out of the box templates and dashboards. Thereby HCL has invested in enhancing the framework as “FraME”. FraME leverages BPEL and provides an automated way of orchestrating the process and captures best practices as an executable script. The benefit is in reduced effort required for any changes in any of the participating systems as well as applying the best practices to a new environment and thereby reducing the time to deploy. These scripts could be run using any system that supports variety of industry standard BPEL scripts like MS BizTalk Server, Oracle BEPL Process Manager and IBM Web Sphere Business Integration Server Foundation.
