How SMEs consistently plan, monitor and control production orders via the ERP system
Providers of ERP systems can use the open interface to connect their solutions to Connected Manufacturing and enable the seamless flow of data in both directions. Orders can therefore be organised, controlled and monitored consistently via the ERP system; production data is available in real time for planning, post-calculations and analyses in the ERP system or planning and analysis tools connected to it. Connected Manufacturing also tracks all tools in real time on their path through production and simplifies tool planning. Thanks to this integration, capacity planning and on-time tool provision seamlessly dovetail and production capacities can be used more efficiently. The open interface is very well documented, meaning that the connection can be made available within a few days.
Companies that do not use an ERP system can manage their orders via the Connected Manufacturing order management system and therefore always keep an eye on manual and external work. Manual operations can be assigned to a workstation and external operations can be assigned to a service provider; components or assemblies that are not in-house are automatically identified so that production planning can be adjusted accordingly. In order to optimise use of resources, workstations, machines and service providers can be combined into work areas and all required resources can be assigned with the click of a button. It is therefore possible to divide production into individual production units in a structured manner and create orders even more quickly in the system.zurück zur Übersicht
