Seiki previews the latest Networked Manufacturing System at Southern
Seiki Systems Ltd will preview the latest version of its Networked Manufacturing System (NMS) at the Southern Manufacturing 2011 exhibition in Farnborough. With an increasingly strong focus on what is happening on the shop floor, Seiki NMS remains one of the most flexible and comprehensive shop floor visual management solutions available to SME manufacturers in the UK today. Can you afford not to bridge the gap between your ERP or business system and those factory resources?
Demonstrating the Latest Software
Due for release in early 2011, the latest version of Seiki NMS features a number of key enhancements that have been designed to provide users with an efficient and intuitive system to more effectively support daily work activities. By focusing on the user experience, data and information requirements, Seiki has evolved the software to help manufacturers address the complete works order lifecycle, from top floor to shop floor in a simple, easy to use and intuitive system. New features include an updated graphical user interface, interactive Factory Status and Machine Utilisation modules, open connectivity to Fanuc and Haas CNCs for data collection, Windows 7 compatibility and the software is written in the latest .NET development framework.
Taking a lean approach to manufacturing means eliminating waste and reducing non-value added activities for which fast, effective and simple shop floor communications are key. Seiki NMS is designed to collect data, disseminate information, increase visibility and automate routine activities, providing essential support in efforts to operate a lean organisation, whilst creating a trusted factory knowledgebase where performance and quality can be achieved through control and continuity.
In addition to featuring the latest software Seiki Systems will be showing its full solution offering, which includes ERP, graphical real time scheduling, SFDC, resource monitoring and DNC. The full Seiki manufacturing solution is now wider than ever before and can support customer requirements from order processing, to production planning, through to manufacturing execution and performance data capture, with flexible and configurable functionality supported by the experienced team of engineers. The Seiki team at the exhibition will be able to offer specialist advice to manufacturers looking to improve their manufacturing processes and overall business efficiency.
Industrial Touch Screen Computers
The software will be demonstrated on DLoG industrial touch screen computers, specifically the ITC 7 which is ideally suited to applications such as data acquisition in assembly and manufacturing. The combination of Seiki and DLoG software and industrial rugged computers provides users with a robust shop floor data collection, visualisation and communications solution.
Whether querying inventory stock of finished or unfinished goods in real-time, capturing operational data reliably, or displaying information such as works order status, a DLoG industrial computer is ideal. A lean 15” touch screen industrial client PC, the ITC 7 is ideally suited to applications such as data acquisition in assembly and manufacturing. The ITC 7 expands the existing DLoG portfolio of robust industrial computers for applications where space requirements are at a minimum and for IT technical implementation options such as the use of browser technology for machine terminals. Benefiting from a space saving depth of just 70mm, the ITC 7 also reduces the footprint on the shop floor
