November 17, 2016 – Rolling Meadows, IL – Panasonic System Solutions Company of North America – Process Automation has launched PanaCIM Work-in-Process Solution, a deeper, more inclusive enterprise-level software innovation especially suited to tracking and controlling production, from Receiving to Shipping and every process in between. A new, tenth module addition to the multi-award-winning PanaCIM Enterprise Edition Manufacturing Execution System (MES) software package, PanaCIM Work-in-Process is a highly configurable, intuitive framework that seamlessly integrates different factory automation systems into a single network for traceability of any product, any process, regardless of manufacturing mix or volume.
A work station interface provides the foundation for data collection, work instructions, and factory operations for discrete manufacturers. The intuitive graphical interface allows for the creation of unlimited processes, installs easily with minimal hardware requirements, and accommodates new documentation versions to be added before rollout. Processes can be created via a simple drag-and-drop procedure—sensors, automation, and even manual processes can be integrated, so manufacturers can know which steps a product has completed, and then enforce route control. Custom conditions can be accommodated to provide non-linear process plan capability, all to ensure the utmost quality.
According to Ramesh Narayanan, GM of Software Development, Panasonic System Solutions Company of North America – Process Automation, “The real beauty of PanaCIM Work-in-Process is that it integrates complex process data in the background, and presents it to the user in a simple, easy-to-use program. For management, traceability can be reported throughout an entire manufacturing process and include as much standard/user-defined data (i.e. Cycle Time, Quality, OEE and customer data points) as desired.”
PanaCIM Work-in-Process is capable of defining trace data at the individual part level, defining inventory locations for any factory floor, and providing a fast, efficient mobile experience for inventory staff. It is fully compatible with PanaCIM Enterprise Edition and PanaCIM Maintenance. PanaCIM Enterprise Edition has been the recipient of numerous industry awards including a Technology award for Best Product, Americas from Global SMT & Packaging and two NPI Awards for Production Software from Circuits Assembly.
