Global manufacturing is a reality. Companies in dynamic markets with multiple plants and integrated processes spanning continents need software to monitor, control and manage operations. This is the purpose of FORCE, the latest and most powerful version of Forcam’s MES software, already proven to deliver productivity gains of up to 30 percent, achieve rapid pay back and produce on-going efficiency gains.
Forcam will be providing advice at the Hannover Fair April 13-17, Hall 7 Stand A11, on any aspect of MES implementation and how FORCE will enable the smart factory revolution.
Based on the proven technology of Factory Framework, the shop floor management system that has already integrated 60,000 heterogeneous machine tools and processes, FORCE provides global synchronisation. Using big data to model processes in the cloud, the system provides real time production data from all locations. This is achieved in a way that is totally transparent and actionable, giving greater agility to manufacturing operations required for the realisation of the smart factory.
As the system is based in secure and private servers in the cloud, executives can access real time performance data any-time, anywhere on any internet enabled device. Having such world-wide intelligence and communication, managers are empowered so the enterprise can respond immediately to market demands.
In addition to the ability to integrate machines of many diverse types, FORCE has a high degree of interoperability with other software systems such as SAP, ERP, PLM, CAQ and TDM. Streaming of real time data into these systems makes them even more powerful management tools.
Forcam will be providing live demonstrations throughout the show. The company HQ is in Germany, but operating subsidiaries provide service and support in USA. UK, China, Poland, France and Benelux countries.
