APS (Advanced Planning Scheduling)
Software for the planning of finite-capacity production, which sequences operations based on the limitations and restrictions of the factory, suppliers and contractors, according to one or more algorithms. APS solutions can be integrated with ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning), MES (Manufacturing Execution System), CMMS (Computerised Maintenance Management System) and/or WMS (Warehouse Management System) solutions.
An MES (Manufacturing Execution System) provides industrial companies with the necessary functionality to manage plant operations and decision-making based on information in real time.
The MES system encompasses solutions for controlling manufacturing, visualising the manufacturing plan and its routes; management of processes, operatives, reception and sending of materials suppliers (including subcontractors); monitoring work centres; planning and optimising the synchronised execution of orders through manufacturing lines; control of quality in plants and traceability of materials and the productive process.
These systems should work in co-ordination with the top layer of management (ERP) and with the connection and supervision layer of physical devices (SCADA, PLC).
CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing)
The CAM tool, which is completely integrated with the different CAD systems available on the market, minimises time spent on generating CNC programmes. In addition to this, changes in design are automatically updated in manufacturing operations. This eliminates hours of programming through interpretation of the design of parts through Automatic Recognition of Traits. CNC programming is flexible, fast, efficient and reliable. Compatible with all CNCs on the market.
“Augmented Reality” systems enable users to combine, within a technical device, tangible physical elements and virtual elements. In this way, they can create a mixed reality or “Augmented Reality” in real time.
Another feature of these augmented reality systems is the fact that they are carried out in real time, using existing camera and object recognition technology, allowing us to present users with intuitive 3D interaction systems which are easy to deploy.
The possibilities for application in the world of industry are manifold. The technological status and cost of the intelligent terminals used allows us to offer significant investment returns to the industry, with projects in the areas of training, maintenance, the productive process, dispatch, post-sales support and more.
The use of robotics as an element in handling products or the carrying out of process operations is decisive in increasing the productivity of manufacturing. Collaborative robots also provide support to the carrying-out of manual operations, working together with the operator carrying these out.
