The new agreement enables Plataine to integrate product design data from Siemens PLM Software’s Teamcenter with orders and inventory information from customer's ERP/MRP systems, to automatically create optimized production plans, which are then integrated back via Teamcenter to the production floor.
Plataine will also integrate Siemens PLM Software’s Tecnomatix portfolio, the industry-leading digital manufacturing software, NX software, a leading integrated solution for computer-aided design, manufacturing and engineering (CAD/CAM/CAE) and Fibersim software, a portfolio of software for composites engineering.
The integrated solution will facilitate a two-way transfer of composite design and production information between engineering and manufacturing. Product design information stored in Teamcenter will be automatically and accurately included in TPO’s cut planning, nesting, inventory selection and cost evaluations processes.
This includes information such as ply geometry and layup order, fiber direction restrictions, material requirements and cutting restrictions. Similarly, the engineering team can now benefit from TPO’s accurate material utilization and costing information and be able to run production simulations to support the design and bidding processes.
"This partnership with Siemens PLM Software enables us to offer our customers one of the best and open Production Optimization software solutions available in the market today,” said Avner Ben-Bassat, Plataine’s President and CEO. "By seamlessly integrating our solutions we are offering the industries we serve—such as aerospace, automotive, marine and wind energy— a powerful tool that streamlines the process of design to manufacturing and allows our customers to act faster and more efficiently in this highly dynamic market.”
“Siemens PLM Software is committed to creating partnerships to help enhance the end-user experience of our customers. We are pleased to expand our partnership with Plataine to provide open, integrated solutions that improve the productivity of our mutual customers,” said Zvi Feuer, senior vice president, Manufacturing Engineering Software, Siemens PLM Software.
Plataine’s Total Production Optimization (TPO) solution offers composite parts manufacturers a fully integrated solution for dynamic optimization and tracking of the composites structure manufacturing processes, from the Freezer to the Autoclave. Seamlessly integrated to the manufacturer's ERP, CAD and Production Floor systems, TPO creates ready-to-cut production plans by optimally selecting the composite materials to use and generating the optimal nests for each one.
TPO achieves this by matching the order due date, order quantity, actual material expiration date and size (width & length) while considering the full order plan for additional optimization opportunities. TPO drives significant cost savings and increased productivity by offering higher material utilization, better inventory management and faster - more flexible - time to market. TPO further reduces costs by automating routine manual tasks and eliminating any errors associated with them.
