ADVANCED PLANNING & SCHEDULING FOR ELECTRONICS
Digitalisation is changing everything, and manufacturers must react quickly and intelligently to unexpected changes, while being able to respond to shorter lead times and satisfy customer demands. These challenges are faced not only by large enterprises, but also small and medium businesses. Siemens Opcenter APS solutions have been specifically developed to meet this need, using advanced algorithms that balance demand and capacity to generate achievable production schedules.
Siemens Opcenter APS can be used for long-term strategic planning covering months and years, medium-term tactical planning with a few weeks planning horizon and for detailed sequencing and scheduling.
Siemens Opcenter APS can be installed out of the box, and can be customized and configured where necessary. It can be used standalone to manage planning and scheduling, and is also designed for integration with other software such as ERP, MES, Data collection, Forecasting, Demand Planning and OEE applications.
Siemens Opcenter Advanced Planning is a strategic decision tool designed to aid you in long and mid-term planning.
Siemens Opcenter Advanced Scheduling is an interactive, multi-constraint scheduling system that provides support for decision-making for overtime, order prioritisation, production batches, due date negotiation and order processing.
Advanced Scheduling for PCB Assembly
In PCB assembly, work order modifications, time overruns, and material availability issues frequently disrupt the production schedule. Opcenter Advanced Scheduling for PCB Assembly solves these challenges by seamlessly connecting your planners to the shop floor, enabling capacity-based production plans, and real-time schedule changes.
Digitalisation is a key concept to help manufacturers implementing Lean and Agile manufacturing processes and is critical to your long term success. Our APS solutions targeted at Electronics Manufacturers provide a suite of tools that helps planners, manufacturing line operators and management to work together to optimize production processes within the digital enterprise to increase efficiency, flexibility and time-to market.
