Competitive advantage: performance and intelligence

The global competition has irrevocably modified the framework conditions for European industrial companies. Even the best quality business can only survive, if the development and production processes are lean and fast and efficiently organised. Shorter and shorter product life cycles and a high price pressure have to be compensated for, all the potential of work-sharing processes be tapped and language barriers overcome.

Our solutions help small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) to utilise their resources efficiently, to organise their production processes in intelligent and lean ways, to deeply interconnect warehouse operations with production and to profitably establish just-in-sequence processes. In parallel, applications, such as our proSystem MES, provide a guarantee for the future: The modular system design decentralises business intelligence, enables machines and equipment to act autonomously, and consequently, already today, is suited for Production 4.0 concepts.

Our applications link all relevant processes in production, packaging, warehousing, picking, goods receipt, goods issue and shippingall under the roof of an information platform crossing processes and locations. The modular system consisting of applications and application modules easily facilitates the far-reaching customisation for specific industrial scenarios and individual customer needs. It is particularly in these projects that the experience of our industry consultants pays off for our customers and ensures real-world usability and tangible profitability.

Typical applications under proSystem MES:

  • Planning, control and management of single- and multi-step production batches.
  • Synchronous planning of capacities and materials in place of MRP II.
  • Scheduling of raw material inputs taking batches into account.
  • Consistent focus on requirements and deadlines for market-oriented production.
  • Industry-specific planning methods (such as parts lists, recipes, cutting plans).
  • Control of operations in the packaging and labelling areas.
  • Residue-free planning and control for realistic capacity planning (e. g. for packaging lines).
  • Fully integrated material and stock management.
  • Integration of logistics distribution and purchasing features.
