Digitalization of the Manufacturing enterprise in the era of Industry 4.0

Today, Manufactures are challenged to react quickly to changing demands resulting in changing production volumes. Manufacturers cannot react quickly and intelligently to changes without planning & scheduling tools. The time it takes to generate a schedule using spreadsheets can take hours or even days and it can be difficult to maintain. If there is an unexpected change, it is not easy to generate a new schedule. While planning is typically mid to long term, it can be months or years ahead. A planning tool is essential to enhance competitiveness, increase profits and improve customer service.

Siemens PLM Software provides a suite of production planning and scheduling products for small, medium and large companies. Advanced Planning and Scheduling improves the synchronization of manufacturing processes and provides greater visibility to increase utilization and on-time delivery while reducing inventory levels and waste. This is a key component of the digital thread in the enterprise while digitalizing the entire manufacturing process to create the smart factory of the future.
