Our production manager module allows you to start fabrication in the most optimal way and is one of Steel Projects PLM’s strongest added values.
Organize your production with the creation of fabrication job that you will be able to track through production. Filters can be used to create groups of pieces that you want to include in them, depending on different factors (type of profile, thickness, etc.). You can mix pieces from different projects.
Creation of a virtual workshop composed of all its workstations (CNC machines or manual workstations).
Configuration of all the operations available for each one. Simplified visualization of this virtual workshop.
Configuration of preferred workflows according to profile types, dimensions, and other factors. When several machines with the same features are available, possibility to change those workflows live depending on the information available such as the current machines loads, potential breakdowns or different constraints.
Forecast production times calculated according to predefined formulas. Those are available by part, group of parts, bars, nesting, or fabrication jobs, and by workstations and more precisely by particular operations.
Once production is prepared, all files can be exported to the correct workstations. CNC data for CNC machines, work order for manual workstations.
It is possible to configure several sites and their associated virtual workshop and workflows andmanage them from one. Jobs can also be exported to those external sites.
