Renesas innovates value chain through global dynamic production adjustment [2:34]

Shozo Tajiri
Vice President
Information Systems Division
Organization Development Unit
Renesas Electronics Corporation:

Renesas delivers high value-added semiconductor solutions that connect intelligent devices to support a safe, comfortable and eco-friendly society.

In order to maintain growth in a changing and highly competitive global market, it is essential that we produce and quickly deliver high variety in small volumes.
That's why we need to change to a more dynamic production adjustment on a global scale.

However our overseas factories operated on their own separate core systems which required personal coordination between each company and was very complex.

So in the IT department we had to find a way to standardize our core business systems to coordinate in a more timely fashion.

We decided to make a change starting with our Malaysia operation.

Hironori Ito
Senior Director,
Renesas Semiconductor KL Sdn. Bhd.:

At the factory we have to be able to quickly identify and deal with problems to meet customer requirements.

That's why we wanted to introduce a system that could handle procurence, production, pricing and accounting and we wanted the transition from the existing system to be fast and safe without affecting operations.

Hirobumi Sato
Senior Manager
Production and Administration IT System Department
Information System Division
Organization Development Unit
Renesas Electronics Corporation:

We decided to partner with NEC because of their top-notch security measures, their flexible systems that address our business needs and their consolidated approach that offer systems operations and maintenance on a global scale.

By using NEC's SAP template, Consultants, and cloud computing, We were able to migrate the system in just half a year at low cost.

Mr. Hironori Ito:
Until now, it took some time to conform data. But now, it takes little time with SAP's ordering and inventory maintenance functions.

And that means accounts get settled faster, issues are identified sooner, and we can take action more quickly.

And by standardizing our BOM and cost centers, it's easier to calculate actual costs and use that information to make improvements.

By utilizing barcodes we've reduced the man-hours needed for data entry which has been hugely helpful on site.

Mr. Shozo Tajiri:
Moving forward we'd like to utilize the functions such as management information visualization and develop common systems for our other factories to innovate value chain.
We will keep working with NEC to meet our customer needs worldwide.
