Industrial machinery companies need a manufacturing operation management solution capable of overcoming the business, production, and IT challenges they currently face.
This white paper, “Opcenter Execution Discrete,” discusses current challenges and outlines how to overcome them using a holistic approach to optimize the entire value chain.
Discrete manufacturers will learn new ways to improve overall supply chain efficiency, increase flexibility, and make production processes more visible.
Manufacturing Operation Management for a Modern Machine Shop
Modern machine shops have end-to-end visibility into production operations and quality management.
That’s because they use manufacturing operation management tools like Opcenter Manufacturing Discrete to connect automated operations equipment and systems on the shop floor to the decision-makers in product development, manufacturing engineering, production and enterprise management.
Read the white paper to learn how full visibility empowers decision-makers to more easily identify areas for improvement and make operational adjustments for smoother and more efficient production.
Digital Factory and Additive Manufacturing
Additive manufacturing, the industrial process used to create three-dimensional objects with successive layers of material, thrives in the digital factory.
Pairing additive manufacturing with manufacturing operation management like Opcenter enables multiple functions:
- Ability to interact with CAM systems to inject serial numbers in print job files
- Track and display the genealogy of powder material batches
- Track and display the lifecycle of substrates
Read the white paper, “Opcenter Execution Discrete,” and find out how the digital factory and additive manufacturing succeed together.
Benefits of Closed-Loop Communication
Closed-loop manufacturing enables customers to seamlessly unite product engineering and process planning with production execution.
In short, this gives engineers and management a more holistic view of information found within manufacturing operations and product lifecycle management systems.
With an improved understanding of the information, this translates to improved change management across all levels, better detail in the bill of process, and the ability to create more relevant issue reports.
“Opcenter Execution Discrete” outlines closed-loop communications and its many benefits.
