Visibility through the supply chain
Speed, flexibility and certainty are recurring themes in the debate surrounding supply chain optimisation. Manufacturing technology is a key enabler to improving responsiveness and flexibility through the supply chain, so that companies don’t have to compromise on these vital criteria.
Manufacturing execution and production control system specialists Seiki Systems Ltd will be exhibiting for the first time this year at DSEI alongside its parent company Kenard Engineering. With the “Meet the Supply Chain” initiative also being introduced this year, Seiki felt that it would provide the best opportunity to demonstrate to companies at every level in the Defence and Aerospace supply chain how integrated systems can help build greater certainty and visibility, as well as minimise risks and disruptions to their production schedules.
Speed to market and greater responsiveness to customer requirements is driving the demand to optimise the supply chain. Accurate data and real time insight is critical for event based decision making in an industry where split second decisions can mean the difference between success and failure.
At DSEI Seiki will demonstrate its full suite of modular software, including finite capacity planning and scheduling, performance analysis reporting, machine event monitoring, W.I.P. tracking, and DNC. We will be looking to demonstrate that whether you are a multi-million pound OEM or an independent SME manufacturer, our technology can help you to derive the information that will support smarter business decisions, cost reductions, time and operational efficiencies, as well as deliver sustainable, efficient manufacturing technologies.
With many companies visiting or exhibiting at DSEI focused on expanding or strengthening their supply chain, Seiki endeavours to draw attention to the process of optimising it. An emphasis will be placed on Planning and Monitoring software as being able to provide greater control and visibility, as well as the key metrics necessary to drive performance improvements from your suppliers or to support continuous improvement initiatives and competitiveness as a supplier.
In an increasingly digitised operating environment where terms such as Manufacturing 4.0 and the Internet of Things (IoT) are becoming integral to the dialogue about the future, companies need to consider ways of working smarter and taking advantage of the technologies available to support their efficiency strategies.
