From data deluge to knowledge pool
Material manager for entire production process

Asys is committed to the automation of manufacturing. This includes integrating intelligent software solutions into the production environment and processing the data streams generated there. In its latest software solution – the “Material manager” – the company uses this data to implement orderly and automatic order processing within production.

The Material manager collects data on all elements of a production process– from AIVs to warehouse systems, process machines and modules installed in machines. It then evaluates this data and makes the right decisions based on it. It ensures that the right material arrives at the right place at the right time. “It takes into account important parameters such as floor lifetime and the availability of autonomous transport robots“, says Florian Ritter, Unit Director Software Solutions & New Business.

In addition, the software independently determines a line’s material demands. It knows when a new order starts on a line and what material this order requires. It automatically initiates a just-in-time supply to the line, effectively avoiding downtimes. Last but not least, the Material Manager can be used to map the entire movement of goods within production. “RFID technology allows material to be tracked at any time during production. Based on this data, paths and processes can be mapped, evaluated and optimized,” he describes this being the new way of meeting the traceability requirements in the production.

Open and producer independent

In software topics, the company relies on openness from the very beginning. For example, Pulse was able to establish itself on the market as the preferred assistance system within a very short time. They pursued the same concept with the OIC software (Overall Inline Communication) also to the material manager external systems can be connected. Ritter emphasizes: “Vendor independencies important to us. For example, we can integrate any placer system into the Material Manager, as well as various storage and robot systems.”
