Shima Seiki releases Shima KnitPLM software

Shima Seiki Mfg., leading Japanese computerised flat knitting machine manufacturer, has announced the release of its new Shima KnitPLM software specifically engineered for the flat knitting industry, the world’s first PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) system dedicated to flat knitting as a powerful implementation of IoT for realising factory automation.

With Shima KnitPLM, the entire manufacturing process of knitwear from planning to production can be visualised to support efforts in maximising production efficiency throughout.

The Shima KnitPLM software comprises of the SPP (Shima Production Planning) system. The SPP software manages production scheduling and machine assignment based on manufacturing order (MO) information managed by the user’s existing ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system. Even users without ERP can input MO information from a dedicated input menu. Production plans created with SPP can be sent automatically to SPR3, where progress can be managed according to schedule.

The next part of the software is SPC (Shima Production Control data distribution system). It is still the norm for knitting data at the factory to be prepared and sent manually to each machine via network or USB device. SPC can automatically send the required production data to individual machines based on scheduling data provided by SPP, reducing workload and preventing mistakes.

The third part of the software is SPR3, Shima Production Report 3 (production management system). As a new and improved version of Shima Seiki’s SPR2 production management software that is already used by most of Shima Seiki’s mid- to large-scale customers, SPR3 can provide high-level solutions through linkage with existing ERP systems, management of machine operators, and—when production stops for some reason—the time and cause of stoppage. Moreover, by using cloud service, factory operating conditions and production status for individual orders can be confirmed remotely at any moment. (GK)
