Intuitive, easy-to-use production scheduling

Set up your constraints using a simple yet comprehensive model that allows you to quickly set up all surface mount technology (SMT) and manual stations in your factory as a basis for conducting simulation. You can easily control optimization parameters, such as due dates, production time and changeovers, and then compare different scenarios. You can then choose the schedule that best fits your needs.

Learning more about Opcenter Scheduling SMT and its unique capabilities has never been easier. I’d like to invite you to test drive our solution in a free trial in which everything has been made ready for you. The trial environment includes exercises with detailed steps that will show you first-hand how to get optimal results in a challenging environment.

Opcenter Scheduling SMT, which is part of Xcelerator, the comprehensive and integrated portfolio of software and services from Siemens Digital Industries Software, combines data from three sources: (1) machine, line configurations and resource availability from the shop floor, (2) work orders, schedules and work hours from the enterprise resource planning (ERP) system and (3) material availability and location from the supply chain. The combination of the three enables accurate short-term scheduling. Find out more about Opcenter Scheduling SMT.
