SIMATIC IT ACM for Assembly and Complex Manufacturing

The product offers a comprehensive solution for job shop production environment and whenever the assignment to operations to workcenter or equipment is dominant.

Challenges

Manufacturers of complex equipments and products must be able to manage manufacturing complexity and reduce time to market. This requires new manufacturing and assembly as well as optimized logistics processes at all levels.

This industry must reach new levels of adaptability to the market changes and new demands. Rapid response to manufacturing events requires alignment between departments, facilities and suppliers.

Operations must be kept aligned throughout the processes to improve customer service, along with market position and profitability.

Shorter design cycle times make the integration of PLM, MES and ERP systems an increasingly critical enabler of an effective product development process.

Within this integrated manufacturing IT, MES provides integrated functions such as routes, sequences, personnel utilization, data collection, scrap reporting, production variance reporting, equipment effectiveness, and others.

SIMATIC IT ACM offers a comprehensive solution for job shop production environment and whenever the assignment to operations to workcenter or equipment is dominant.
