Libraries for quality requirements in discrete manufacturing

(PresseBox) (Fürth, ) Siemens Industry Automation Division has expanded its MES (Manufacturing Execution Systems) offer, Simatic IT, by a set of libraries for fulfilling quality requirements in discrete manufacturing industry. Visual inspection and non-conformance are now managed by predefined procedures easy to use and install in several types of industry. Additionally error proofing is integrated by complete electronic work instructions that help operators throughout the entire manufacturing cycle with the capability of dynamically supporting optional parts, directly at the plant level.

The regulatory compliance in discrete manufacturing industry is continuously growing. The ability to provide products with the right quality and managing high volumes at high speed is one important focus. The number of orders handled per day and the number of items of BoMs (Bill of Materials) is higher of some orders of magnitude, compared to the typical items of process industry. The new set of libraries for Simatic IT now provides an efficient access to the required quantity structures and real time capabilities in discrete manufacturing. The new offer provides the acquisition of machinery data and their association to individual products and orders and is an important function for quality management, safety and recall campaigns.
