Production Management consists of systems and methods that are used to control and optimize the manufacturing of products and materials in industrial plants and facilities. Software solutions used in the role range from advanced multi-variable process control to Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) solutions or Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES). Yokogawa provides many solutions in this area including Process Information Management Systems (PIMS) and Operations Management through to real-time model based process control and optimization.
Planned production is often compromised by unplanned Downtime incidents and sub-optimal production rates that are not quantified in terms of Time, Rate Loss and the associated Reasons. Without this quantifiable information there is no way to consistently identify potential downtime causes and to assign activities to make the necessary improvements avoiding future lost production.
mPower extends the power of Exaquantum to integrate business and process data in a production model to give you the validated information you need to optimize and maximize valuable production resources.
Power plant operators have been analyzing plant performance for many years using a variety of techniques. This information has typically been available to only a select number of users such as process engineers, leaving the broader community oblivious to this important information.
Planning and scheduling systems are meant to support the creation of an optimized production plan. This is acheived by understanding the limitations of the production process, gathering orders from ERP systems and stock information from the MES layer.
