AVAILABLE NOW! Opcenter Execution Process 3.3

By Alessandro Cereseto

A new version of our MES for Process Industries is available: Opcenter Execution Process 3.3.

Enabling process-driven manufacturing through a scalable approach

In this release, the integration with SIMATIC BATCH is further enhanced with full high-availability and new functionalities. It is now easier to trigger a workflow execution in Opcenter Execution Process (Opcenter EX PR) based on SIMATIC BATCH events, which will guide and control shop floor activities. For example, during the execution of a batch, it may be necessary to perform a quality check or add or discharge materials. The actions for the quality checks can be performed on Opcenter EX PR, using the new quality tasks orchestrated in a workflow, including work instructions to guide the operator. Once the actions have been correctly performed, Opcenter EX PR can send back the results of the actions and reactivate the batch execution.

Siemens Opcenter Execution Process 3.3 brings you the following benefits:

  • Provides visibility and synchronization with all manufacturing operations
  • Facilitates native orchestration of heterogeneous activities
  • Delivers full traceability of operations and materials
  • Integrates sampling and quality control with Opcenter RD&L
  • Supports multiple versions of SIMATIC BATCH software

This is possible thanks to features such as:

  • SIMATIC BATCH integration enhancements
  • Quality execution and native integration with Opcenter RD&L
  • At-line testing task integrated with Opcenter RD&L
  • Offline testing task enhancements
  • Material issuing enhancements
