Andea’s proven & tested strategy for Apriso upgrades triumphs again - IPG success story

Intertape Polymer Group Inc. is a packaging products and systems company based in Montreal, Canada, and Sarasota, Florida, supplying retailers and manufacturers. The product range includes a variety of paper and film-based pressure-sensitive and water-activated tapes, stretch and shrink films, protective packaging, woven and non-woven products, and packaging machinery.

IPG has been using the DELMIA Apriso since 2014, utilizing functionalities like validating the availability of production resources, production order sequencing, production tracking, OEE tracking, scrap reporting, and inventory management. When the time came for a system upgrade, IPG turned to Andea due to our extensive Apriso experience. Our consultants executed the upgrade from v9.6 to DELMIA Apriso 2020 in stages, following Andea’s proven and tested strategy for MES system upgrades.

Apriso is a mission-critical solution at IPG. We were running an older version of the Apriso platform that needed an upgrade. When identifying a partner, we needed a company that would help us minimize the risk of system downtimes and deliver reliable and quality solutions. We selected Andea for the job due to their extensive experience with the Apriso platform and a proven track record of completing multiple Apriso upgrade projects. They started the engagement by completing an upgrade assessment, which helped them identify the potential upgrade risks and plan how to mitigate them. With the help of Andea, we completed the upgrade project successfully without any major production disruptions.
