Innovation and collaborative, synchronized program management for new programs
Discrete Manufacturing is often characterized by limited volume and very high in complexity. New markets, new materials and new technologies require sustained increase in plant-efficiency and productivity as well as extreme flexibility in all manufacturing processes. Critical for these industries is the ability to improve production quality and time-to-market speed while cutting costs.
SIMATIC IT Unified Architecture Discreet Manufacturing provides powerful Manufacturing Execution capabilities that ensure greater process-flexibility and efficiency, complete integration of regulatory and quality requirements, synchronized production processes for optimal supply-chain management, and sustained reductions in maintenance and operation costs. Combined with your ERP and PLM systems, SIMATIC IT Unified Architecture forms an integral part of your manufacturing technology strategy by providing the shop floor visibility needed to increase quality and efficiency at the plant and within supply chain operations.
Siemens data collection and acquisition capabilities enable you to obtain operational production data that is associated with production equipment and processes.
Get instant access to production documentation. Control records and forms including work order instructions, recipes, drawings, standard operating procedures,part programs, batch records, engineering change notices, shift-to-shift communication, as well as the ability to edit “as planned” and “as built” information.
Siemens PLM Software MES Labor Management provides the status of personnel and may include time and attendance reporting, certification tracking, as well as the ability to track production support functions performed by personnel. It automatically ensures that only qualified employees perform prescribed shop-floor and quality functions. Real-time verification fully supports regulatory and quality systems compliance. Operator Training and Certification enables you to establish manufacturing roles, define training requirements for various roles and process certification requirements, maintain training records and establish certification expirations.
With Siemens PLM Software's Maintenance Management capabilities, you can track resource usage based on elapsed and usage time and production quantities; and, based on predefined limits, ensure that production does not outpace maintenance requirements. Maintenance Management provides visibility into resource issues and a detailed history of all activities. With this level of visibility, it is possible to determine true performance values for equipment.
Siemens PLM Software MES Solutions provide the ability to manage and track the movement and storage of materials, in-process items and finished products, as well as the transfers between and within work centers.
MES delivers operations and detailed scheduling capabilities that provide the sequence and the timing of operations based on priorities and production rules associated with specific production equipment and product characteristics.
Siemens PLM Software MES solutions provide up-to-the-minute reporting of actual manufacturing operations along with a comparison to historic and expected results. Performance results include measurements as resource utilization, resource availability, product unit cycle time, conformance to schedule, and performance to standards. Performance analysis may include SPC/SQC analysis and may draw from information gathered by different control functions that measure operating parameters.
Siemens PLM Software MES solutions monitor production processes and provide decision support to operators for correcting and improving in-process functions. These functions may be intra-operational and focus specifically on machines or equipment being monitored and controlled within a single operation, as well as tracking a production process from one operation to the next.
Siemens MES production tracking capabilities provide the status of production and the disposition of work. Status information may include personnel assigned to the work; component materials used in production; current production conditions; and any alarms, rework, or other exceptions related to the product. The functionality includes the capability to record the production information allowing forward and backward traceability of components and their use within each end product.
Ensure end-to-end quality management across your manufacturing process. Focus on prevention to streamline compliance and reduce the cost of quality.
Siemens PLM Software’s digital manufacturing software capabilities for shipyard production combine a range of 3D visualization, simulation, planning and supporting data management applications.
VinFast plans to use an integrated digital platform including the Teamcenter® portfolio for digital lifecycle management, including the Teamcenter solution for product costing to support cost and value engineering, and the Tecnomatix® portfolio, the industry-leading digital manufacturing software, combined with SIMATIC IT UA for Discrete Manufacturing covering the MES (Manufacturing Execution System) layer.
