Manufacturing process efficiency is often delayed due to disconnections between the two worlds of part manufacturing: the virtual world where the manufacturing plan is defined, and the physical world where the plan is executed to produce the part. In many cases, production is disrupted due to the shop floor using incorrect or out-of-date data. Resolving this type of issue takes time and can render machines idle. The use of incorrect information is a result of a poor communication between the planning department and the shop floor, and also poor management of the manufacturing data, NC programs and work instructions.
In other cases, production delays are the result of incorrectly defined manufacturing processes – machining data, work instructions, and tool lists that are incorrectly defined with tools that are unavailable or no longer in commission. This issue is typically identified when it too late, at the time of machine setup, and results in costly rework by the programming department.
Siemens offers technology that takes the connection between manufacturing planning and production environments to the next level to further reduce your manufacturing cycle times and improve quality. By integrating shop floor Direct Numerical Control (DNC) and tool management shop floor systems with Teamcenter, you can connect and transfer manufacturing planning data directly to the point of execution.
With leading capabilities in both of the virtual and physical domains of part manufacturing, Siemens can provide planning and NC programming technology for defining and validating the manufacturing plan, and production technology for driving machine tools (controller, drives, DNC and tool management software). By properly connecting your planning and production systems, you can boost production performance, shorten manufacturing time, and even improve machine utilization
