The dynamic changes in market demands, triggered by the Internet of Things, require considerably shorter modernization cycles as we head towards Industry 4.0. Increasing volumes of data and new means of exchanging information are resulting in closer collaboration between integrated plant and automation system suppliers and plant owners/operators and end users. Production lead times must be minimized and a high level of adherence to delivery deadlines must be achieved. At the same time, resources must be optimally utilized with reduced stock, and maximum yield must be attained to ensure profitability. This is where SMS digital offers a variety of different software solutions that employ methods of machine learning, artificial intelligence, and big data analysis to monitor all production steps along the entire process chain.
The MES 4.0 manufacturing execution system is the holistic, modular solution for planning and controlling the whole metallurgical process chain and all production facilities as part of upgrades, expansions, or new integrated plants.
Many companies strive to optimize their productivity by managing the orders they receive in an effective and efficient way. To achieve this goal, however, two conditions have to be fulfilled: The first is the precise forecasting and planning of future demand and customer orders. Then, this plan and the resulting processes need to be optimized far in advance, in order to attain the relevant efficiency targets, transition and energy costs, inventories, and on-schedule delivery. We give you the right tools that enable you to implement this efficiently.
