Plataine (Petach Tikva, Israel), provider of Industrial IoT (IIoT) and AI-based software for manufacturing optimization, has released version 4.0 of its cloud-based production scheduling application. Production Scheduler is part of Plataine’s Total Production Optimization (TPO) suite of applications such as Material & Asset Tracker, WIP Optimizer and Tool Manager, which integrates production scheduling with shop-floor management, streamlining production resources including materials, equipment and tools to make complex manufacturing processes more efficient.
Advantageous for planners and shop-floor employees, Plataine says its Production Scheduler provides a new, automated way to schedule and complete work orders, enhancing product operations according to set business KPIs (key performance indicators). Acting as a digital assistant, the application helps planners build a schedule and then monitors and adapts the actual production process, continuously improving it by comparing planned vs. actual development and reacting to unexpected events such as incoming rush orders, machine malfunctions and production delays. Applying AI-based technologies, the company says its scheduler also leverages bottleneck prediction and equipment efficiency.
