AVAILABLE NOW! Opcenter Execution Discrete 4.1

By Alessandro Cereseto

Solution for complex assembly and job-shop environments

A new version of our MES for Discrete Industries is available: Opcenter Execution Discrete 4.1.

Opcenter Execution Discrete is designed to satisfy the most common needs of industries in which specific macro areas are dedicated to executing sequential discrete manufacturing functions in order to produce the desired product.

These include:

  • Automotive tier suppliers
  • Aerospace and defense tier suppliers
  • Energy and utilities
  • Industrial machinery and heavy equipment
  • White goods and home appliances
  • Complex parts manufacturing and assembly

By using Opcenter Execution Discrete you can leverage specialized out-of-the-box (OOTB) functions for complex assembly manufacturing and job-shop environments (high complexity, low volume) and automated repetitive manufacturing industries (configurable products, high volume).

This is possible thanks to features such as:

  • Perform quality inspections on products, including measurements, checklists and visual defect detection and count. It is also possible to require electronic signatures to buy-off the correct completion of a manufacturing activity
  • Perform material calls, tool calls and e-kanban buffer replenishment. Additionally, it is possible to model movable containers to hold workpieces during manufacturing
