The automotive supplier Ficomirrors selected Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) for an edge-to-cloud platform. Ficomirrors will use HPE’s GreenLake platform to improve production efficiency and power a flexible manufacturing system, according to HPE.
Ficomirrors turned to Infomex, an HPE Gold Partner, for advisory services and an IT environment assessment. Infomex recommended GreenLake for its reliability and flexibility requirements. GreenLake is intended to help customers to “avoid large-scale investments,” due to a flexible IT consumption model delivered to their specified location.
For Ficomirrors will be able to “handle any compute workload” and scale up or down their operations to meet their needs. The automotive supplier should be able to reduce its total cost of ownership, improve efficiency of the manufacturing cycle and reduce time to market, HPE said.
“Our new manufacturing strategy was designed to respond to the high demand in the automotive industry for customized manufacturing and efficient supply services to enable our customers to increase their rate of production and build in more flexibility at reduced cost,” said Michał Kasak, IT manager, Ficomirrors.
