Plataine (Waltham, Mass. U.S.), a provider of industrial IoT and AI-based optimization solutions for advanced manufacturing, provides the latest version of its Production Scheduler Solution. The tools and algorithms featured in the scheduler provide composite parts manufacturers with a distinctive approach to production planning. The company says the Production Scheduler is an intelligent, intuitive solution, presenting advancements and features to further maximize capacity while considering human resources, tools and machine constraints during the automatic generation of optimized production schedules.
The ability to handle resource capacity is one of the new features of the updated Scheduler version, which enables the system to generate plans while considering the availability of human and other factory resources. With the Production Scheduler, manufacturers are able to use their workforce efficiently while creating a well-planned, feasible schedule. The tool support feature enables manufacturers to schedule and manage their tools, molds and resources effectively, promoting that they are always in top condition and ready for use. The maintenance cycle monitoring checks that tools and machines are properly maintained, reducing downtime and increasing productivity. The UX design is user-friendly and intuitive, making it easy for planners to navigate and use the system effectively.
Plataine’s Scheduler is said to help overcome bottlenecks in the production process, such as autoclave availability, and offers solutions to optimize production and autoclave runs. The Production Scheduler generates real-time reports that provide insights into the production process, enabling manufacturers to make data-driven decisions.
The Production Scheduler solution can respond to unexpected events, such as production delays, machine malfunction or shortage of staff, on the factory floor quickly. The automated solution may reduce response time to an incident from days to minutes, Plataine says. The planner has the ability to adjust the schedule, approve it with the supervisor and distribute it to the floor in a few mouse clicks. This leads to higher throughput and improved on-time delivery rate.
“Plataine’s Production Scheduler Solution is an industry game-changer,” says Amir Ben-Ass, VP marketing and production strategy at Plataine. “With its advanced Practimum Optimum algorithm, manufacturers can optimize their production processes, enhance productivity and reduce costs.”
