Innovation and collaborative, synchronized program management for new programs
SIMATIC IT Unified Architecture for Process Industries is Siemens’ Manufacturing Execution System for Consumer Packaged Goods, Food & Beverage and Chemical industries. SIMATIC IT Unified Architecture for Process Industries allows companies to increase manufacturing efficiency and flexibility, and at the same time ensure perfect quality - all based on a state-of-the-art platform and app approach.
Manufacturing Execution capabilities include vertical integration, process orchestration, genealogy and production reporting covering wall-to-wall manufacturing processes such as material receiving, production and material outbound. Integrated quality management handles sampling, analysis and evaluation of quality results seamlessly tied to the manufacturing events
Using SIMATIC IT UA for Process Industries as a MOM platform enables seamless integration with scheduling, quality and SIMATIC IT Manufacturing Intelligence, which delivers interactive dashboards for analysis of production data. For New Product Development & Introduction, it enables transformation of recipes from “generic” specifications to detailed “master” instructions, ready for order scheduling and execution.
Siemens data collection and acquisition capabilities enable you to obtain operational production data that is associated with production equipment and processes.
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.
