Production Control System
The RELAG-System® – PLS enables monitoring of the production sequence in real time and, in contrast to an ERP system, is connected directly to the production machines. While the ERP system works on a cross-company level and compiles the general production planning, the production control system directly manages all connected machines and must also access the various machine parameters etc. Besides manufacturing planning, production and product data is logged and, if necessary, communicated to the higher-ranking IT.
The RELAG-System® – PLS can be combined very efficiently with the SLS and BDE modules so that prompt loading and unloading of all production machines is automatically ensured. In this way, fault messages, order status or start and end times of the machine are communicated to the RELAG-System®. An essential step towards Industry 4.0.
The RELAG-System® – PLS therefore offers the following benefits:
- Prompt logging of material inflows and outflows
- Inventory transparency in the ERP system
- Batch tracking with all production steps
- Prompt loading and unloading of the machines
- Capacity planning for the production facilities
- Detailed production planning on site
- Management of shift operation
