Work plans detailing all the work steps are implemented in production based on all the data from the CAD/CAM and ERP/PPS environments that are made available in the central CERTA process control system. Depending on the level of automation, machine tools from the individual production cells report the respective production statuses including all required data back to the CERTA process control system.
All operating and machine data is automatically transferred to the central process control system. The user has access to a wide range of powerful tabular and graphical evaluation options. User-friendly export functionality helps the user to perform any analysis and evaluation tasks in downstream applications.
All machine tools are monitored continually. In the event of malfunction, a notification is issued immediately via pager, e-mail or SMS in order to initiate steps to rectify the problem. Real-time monitoring takes into account machine tools, handling units and work stations.
