Panasonic System Solutions Company of North America – Process Automation (PSSNA-PA) introduces PanaCIM® Enterprise Edition - electronics assembly Manufacturing Execution System (MES) software providing new levels of integration across a company's entire enterprise. PanaCIM Enterprise Edition includes nine modules: Production Analysis, Production Planning, Production Monitoring and Dispatch, Material Verification, Traceability, Material Control, Product Changeover and Control, Maintenance, and Enterprise Link.
"PanaCIM Enterprise Edition goes far beyond controlling electronics assembly equipment only; it can integrate and transcend customers' organizations to enterprise-wide productivity-whether their enterprise has one manufacturing site or multiple sites in multiple geographies," said M. Faisal Pandit, PSSNA-PA Director of Solutions. "It builds on Panasonic's many years of experience in delivering advanced software solutions to the electronics manufacturing industry. PanaCIM Enterprise Edition's powerful and comprehensive set of collaborative applications is designed to help streamline the overall manufacturing process and drive cost efficiencies."
A highlight of this modular software includes Production Monitoring and Dispatch's centralized and real-time data monitoring to identify events such as part exhausts, changeovers and process shifts. It dispatches tasks to the necessary labor resources via email, PDA, or visual display allowing the operator to acknowledge and take ownership of events with auto-detection of event resolution. This module also generates reports for analysis of event history by product, operator, and equipment.
The Production Planning module's capacity analysis tool allows for more accurate cost estimations as well as provides line configurations best suited to your future needs. And the Material Control-Allocation module's reservation function manages availability of materials while controlling excess WIP of raw materials on the production floor.
"This software suite coupled with our superior equipment, electronics manufacturing experience and consulting services create a very new and unique offering for customers to consider when determining with whom they will partner," Pandit added. "PanaCIM Enterprise Edition is further proof of Panasonic Factory Solution's metamorphosis into a total solution provider."
