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 remedy this situation. A simulation-based optimisation of the production process and planning counteract the problems.
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 goals set can be achieved.
All manufacturing companies and handicraft enterprises are addressed.
