iMaker – Management assembly lines
iMaker – Management system for assembly lines.
All material handling, processing and respective information flows techniques may be integrated at all production levels so as to guaranty efficient engineering with enormous advantages per all industrial processes. Thanks to decades of know-how in the production sector, CASSIOLI integrates its MES (Manufacturing Execution System) in the industrial LogIS suite. The iMaker system is the CASSIOLI software product to control corporate production. The management system involves direct connection to machines to deduce the information required and integrate the execution of manufacturing stages and generate information needed to control the production itself. Every single stage is homogenously integrated into all production levels, from the field level right up to more complex systems.
Production management activities consist in all those automated actions and production functions aimed a coordinating equipment, personnel, materials and industrial processes. CASSIOLI’s automatic manufacturing control system processes all data regarding production capacity, scheduling and all resources (personnel, materials and equipment) related to a given production unit.
CASSIOLI uses cutting-edge technology to collect, transmit and process data regarding operation control and scheduling. Expandability, modularity, flexibility and functional separation constituted the founding features of CASSIOLI’s iMaker system. Based on the specific working context, iMaker may be configured as a simple assembly line management system or even an actual M.E.S. (Manufacturing Executive System). The architecture of the iMaker system is based on a “coordinated independence” concept, related to all work stations vis-à-vis both plant engineering and information technology.
To monitor, coordinate, synchronize and optimize production processes; this is the iMaker objective. The iMaker system can efficiently connect plant systems (PC, PLC, etc.) to decisional systems (ERP, SCM, etc.), for centralized management of all production processes.
MES solutions consent achieving strategic results in the medium and long terms, which translates into a more thorough knowledge of internal processes and improved corporate image (perceived by the customer):
- Increase of product quality
- More efficient supplier evaluation (vendor rating)
- Greater efficacy in budget activities
- Reduction of re-processing and rejects
- Database for process re-engineering
