Flexible manufacturing systems

Flexible manufacturing systems let you shift workflows effortlessly

Enhance your ability to be proactive with the variables you need to consider in your day-to-day operations. And connect your manufacturing components to meet customer demands, eliminate potential failure points and increase or adjust production system productivity without incurring excessive costs and resources.

Many companies face challenges in tracking parts across their factory or from one facility to another thus driving increased costs, labour and inaccuracies along the way. Lack of visibility to inventory, points of failure, etc. results in product shortages and missed production cycles. Through Industry 4.0 connectivity, automation, fast information exchange and analytics, a new dimension of flexibility can be reached, and new approaches to planning and controlling production systems can be designed.

The outputs of a Smart Factory on manufacturing:

  • Enhanced productivity

    – reduce production time, enable better asset utilisation, and inventory management with higher levels of automation
  • Enhanced flexibility

    – execute the production steps for a large, or small number of products
  • Enhanced quality

    – monitor current production in real-time and quickly intervene in case of errors via smart sensors

What production flexibility can do for you:

Move away from spreadsheets and other manual processes to automated solutions to better optimise the planning and scheduling of building a product. Bolster the continuity of operations — even with skeletal crews — with automated equipment-monitoring and process systems. Reduce cycle times and higher yield, quality, energy and throughout process industries where process parameters must be constantly monitored and optimised. And maximise operating equipment and process parameters to increase overall equipment efficiency. You can accomplish all of this, and production flexibility helps you get there.

Flexibility within production requires visibility into the production floor. Our solutions provide these insights by being the data collection and integration tools that help you make better production decisions in real time.
