|How do you manage the volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity (VUCA) that are sapping the value from your complex manufacturing lines?|
|Are your current processes and systems up to the task?|
|Do they show you what is actually happening on the plant floor or help you adapt quickly enough to unplanned events?|
If any of these questions occupy your mind, join our webinar and learn more about how you can manage VUCA by integrating MES and scheduling and how one of your peers is actually doing it.
What you will learn:
|Why detailed scheduling is so important in high mix, low volume and constantly changing environments;|
|What has made scheduling such a challenge in the past;|
|How to close the loop between the schedule and its execution in the plant;|
|Why both scheduling and production benefit from sharing a core software platform;|
|How Austria Technologie & Systemtechnik Aktiengesellschaft (AT&S), European market leader and one of the leading manufacturers of high-value printed circuit boards, is implementing a modern MES solution that integrates scheduling with production.|
