As well as rapid implementation, it offers standardised machine connectivity and seamless integration with ERP/MRP/APS systems to ensure a continual flow of information.
As a browser-based application, Seiki AIR can be used on almost any device with a browser, which means all the necessary computing power is centred around your server, resulting in lighter IT infrastructure demands at point of use.
Seiki AIR is a role orientated solution. It has been specifically built around user requirements and use cases. We’ve observed, listened and tested all the interactions between different roles and the system to make sure that Seiki AIR will fully support your daily work activities, responsibilities and goals.
An integrated approach to shop floor systems can help transform the way your team works. Seiki AIR delivers a combined view of your manufacturing resources and production activities on a single screen. We’ve created a workspace that reflects the multi-tasking, multi-functional and often information rich demands of the modern manufacturing environment.
Standardised machine connectivity and seamless integration with ERP/MRP/APS systems means you can have a complete picture and live, dynamic connection between your top floor and shop floor. The resulting enriched data can be used for deeper insights into your performance.

Seiki AIR WIP Booking
Extending visibility and control of your customer works orders beyond your ERP and APS systems to the shop floor via prioritised, interactive work queues is the key to fast, frictionless order processing. With the growing challenges of global competition, increasing material costs and lead times, exacting quality standards and critical deadlines to be met, being able to drill down into the detail of each operation is a significant advantage. By connecting multiple departments with shared insight, it can help to minimise risk, make informed delivery promises and achieve the agility needed to stay responsive to customer and industry demands.
