What’s new in Opcenter Scheduling SMT 2210

By Alessandro Cereseto

Integrate with Fuji Nexim to improve multiline factory optimizer experience

Opcenter™ Scheduling SMT software is a scheduling tool for the surface mount technology (SMT) manufacturing industry that seamlessly connects the planner to the shop floor. Opcenter Scheduling SMT is part of the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio, the comprehensive and integrated portfolio of software, hardware and services.

You can use Opcenter Scheduling SMT to support factory planners as they generate production schedules while adhering to a dynamic manufacturing environment. You can do this by considering frequent, real-time changes that occur in the manufacturing stage, especially in high-mix, low-volume production or when introducing a new product. This release can integrate with Fuji Nexim as well as an improved multiline factory optimizer experience.

Main features of this version:

  • Fuji Nexim integration
  • Multiline improvement heat map
  • Improved workorder file drag and drop support


  • Integrate with Fuji Nexim to improve multiline factory optimizer experience
  • Easily compare schedule optimizations with the new heat map
  • Decide quickly and accurately on the best scheduling process
  • Use Fuji Nexim to leverage accurate part data
  • Simplify importing workorders

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.
