AVAILABLE NOW! Siemens Opcenter APS 18.1

We are excited to announce the availability of Siemens Opcenter APS 18.1!

Siemens Opcenter APS introduces three new tools for maintaining schedules without directly interacting with Siemens Opcenter Scheduling. In the scenario of a machine breakdown that negatively impacts production, if the failure is updated in a manufacturing execution system (MES), the new data can be imported into Siemens Opcenter Scheduling using the import / export console, the material control can be run using the standard material control (SMC) console, and an updated schedule can then be generated using the sequencer console. Data or schedules can then be exported to an external database or as a file.

Siemens Opcenter APS 18.1 brings you the following benefits:

  • Maintain schedules without direct interaction

— Data import and export

— Material pegging

— Running scheduling rules

  • Out-of-the-box integration with Siemens manufacturing execution
