By Alessandro Cereseto

Solution for complex assembly and job-shop environments

Version 1.2 is now available. SIMATIC IT Unified Architecture Discrete Manufacturing (SIMATIC IT UADM) 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.

With SIMATIC IT UA Discrete Manufacturing you can now leverage even more:

    • Create production orders by defining the type of production and quantity to be produced
    • Enhanced configurability of the integration with Teamcenter® software manufacturing
    • Distribute workload among operators at shift start
    • Guide operators during the execution phase, including quality activity
    • Track and monitor production to see how the execution of your work order is progressing
    • Configurable constraints on the use of manufacturing tools and equipment
    • Support of powder-based additive manufacturing (AM) processes
    • Powder batch preparation, consumption, recycling, mixing and genealogy
    • Additive manufacturing substrate management
