Enterprise MES

Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) denotes the Ground Zero of a new age, which will cause global changes due to technological innovations. This change reveals unimagined economic opportunities. It will form existing branches or even create new industries. In future as technology, new cyber-physical systems (CPS) will be available, which are promoted by the German "Industry 4.0" program. Equipped with small sensors and actuators, CPS are networks of computers that will be integrated into materials, objects, equipment, and machine parts as so-called "embedded systems" jointly communicating via the internet. From these smart systems, so-called "Embedded MES" (Manufacturing Execution Systems) can be built, which are equipped with high intelligence and act far more autonomous in comparison to today's automation.

But how is all that related to an Enterprise MES made by camLine?

Manufacturing Analytics

With Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), manufacturing analytics comes on a very large scale

Already today, the competitive edge is determined by the targeted and timely procurement of valuable information from gigantic large and distributed data sources. This fact applies especially for the production with its distributed organizations and dynamic supplier networks. How can you win this race in the “data universe”? Would you as an entrepreneur have a chance? The answer is: Yes. Manufacturing Analytics is the favored approach here so that in future, organizations of all sizes will get hold of information they need in order to survive in the global competition.

C-Parts Management in the Cloud

With the supply management of C-parts in the cloud, camLine presents a new and innovative solution that is already being in use by two screw manufacturers to monitor their Kanban supply cycles. As business logic has been commonly found so far in locally implemented infrastructure solutions only, camLine now offers this as a powerful cloud service, more specifically as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). The advantages are obvious and address on the one part cost-effectiveness and, on the other, significant time savings during commissioning.

Streamlining Technology Development

Seamless connection between R&D and Manufacturing

The XperiDesk Suite applies the principles of Enterprise Information Management (EIM) and Manufacturing Intelligence (MI) to the field of R&D for high-tech manufacturing processes (e.g., semiconductor, MEMS, photovoltaic, nano-particles). It can be considered to be a special blend of bottom-up Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and R&D oriented Manufacturing Execution System (MES), also understood as Process Development Execution System (PDES).

XperiDesk can expedite your R&D with flexible software including:

  • Next generation recipe and DoE management
  • Virtual manufacturing management
  • Automated data collection from various sources
  • Experimental data management, analysis and extraction
