Running a CNC Shop is hard. As a machine shop manager, you will need to decide:
Every shop is different, so the importance of each of these questions will vary on a case-by-case basis. To address these challenges and help answer these questions, Siemens and Hyla Soft have partnered to provide unparalleled solutions for part manufacturers.
Teamcenter Part Planner enables a single source for managing manufacturing data elements and allows you to define the Manufacturing Process Plan. Part Planner can be leveraged to store, search and access product and process information in order to re-use, edit or review.
Teamcenter Part Planner allows engineers to use graphical tools to arrange a sequence of operations into a manufacturing process plan:
The Part Planner application ensures that all the source data (CAM, fixtures, CMM, etc.) is managed in a single location under revision control for easy access and retrieval:
Manufacturing Resource Library (MRL) allows you to centralize the plant’s machining tools and resources in one location, to be used during CAM programming and within manufacturing process plans:
Shop Floor Connect for Teamcenter is the scalable Siemens DNC and EWI solution that allows you to synchronize manufacturing planning and shop floor resources:
Having a central repository of CAM data allows for full lifecycle control and definition of piece-part manufacturing operations content, from prove-outs/prototypes to manufacturing revision changes of CAM engineering files that support shop floor execution such as:
Shop Floor Integrate extends the capability of MRL by providing physical tooling management. SFI allows for tooling personnel to effectively manage and build physical tool assemblies based on released virtual tooling from MRL. Tool managers can also execute tool balancing to ensure they have the right tools to complete the job. Capabilities include:
Unified Architecture Discrete Manufacturing is an MES product that can fully support piece-part production process, providing better control and visibility on the shop floor:
Siemens MindSphere is a comprehensive data hosting platform that allows companies to connect devices and assets from the production floor, securely collect and store operational data from these industrial assets to the MindSphere cloud, then transform data into knowledge with data analytics capabilities, tools for developers, applications and services.
Available for download on smartphones and tablets, MindApp Analytics allows customers to visualize exposed Industry 4.0 IoT data directly from MindSphere. MindApp Analytics provides the following features:
In total, Hyla Soft offers several integrated solutions, ranging from the planning to execution stages of the production process. The potential for these solutions to be utilized in parallel with Teamcenter can provide several beneficial elements, promoting continuous production excellence:
