Isolated and delayed feedback from production leads to a resource-intensive planning and control effort in the event of disruptions in the production process. In addition, existing planning tools often lack synchronisation and real-time information from the shop floor.
Key Performance Indicators (KPI) in a lean Manufacturing Execution System (MES) can be used to handle the situation. A simulation-based optimisation of the production process and the planning counteracts the problem.
By using cyber-physical systems at critical points of the value chain as well as technologies for the acquisition, processing and communication of information such as inventory of components, location tracking of components, etc., the set goals can be achieved.
All manufacturing companies and handicraft enterprises are concerned.
