Anniversary edition of Seiki’s Networked Manufacturing System (NMS) – NMS 2012

To celebrate its 20th anniversary year, Seiki Systems is launching NMS 2012, a special anniversary edition of its core shop floor production management system module.

The software is designed for companies looking to maximise productivity and get the most from lean initiatives by utilising a complete shop floor system to electronically distribute and collect manufacturing process data.

NMS 2012 draws upon Seiki’s 20 years experience of working with manufacturing organisations and technologies. It is the culmination of valuable contributions from customers and partners that have informed the design and functionality enhancements of earlier versions, to make daily tasks easier and faster for users to perform. Stability and reliability are critical when it comes to managing manufacturing data, so whilst Seiki has focused on delivering a brand new user interface and new features, NMS 2012 has been designed to retain compatibility with previous versions of the software and customer data. New features include:
• Completely new and enhanced user interface
• Written in the latest .NET development framework
• Databased data collection module
• Interactive and configurable live resource status and machine utilisation
• OEE and analysis module

There is an increasing awareness of the tangible benefits to be gained from adopting technologies that can really support efficiency, process optimisation, cost control reductions and business growth throughout the manufacturing industry. NMS 2012 is designed to facilitate closer integration between the shop floor as a critical element in the business planning process and top floor business intelligence systems such as ERP, MRP and APS. It ensures that data from the shop floor can contribute directly to the effective planning, management and utilisation of production facilities.
Seiki will also celebrate its anniversary year at MACH 2012 with the company’s largest stand to date, where NMS 2012 will be demonstrated live on the latest Senor industrial touch screen PCs and visitors will be able to see how Seiki integrates NMS with its finite capacity Scheduler and ERP modules to create a complete shop floor to top floor manufacturing solution.
