Demand Outpaces Capacity for the Aerospace Industry in 2017 & 2018
With orders outpacing capacity in 2017 and the next two years, productivity is a key driver for manufacturers in the Aerospace industry.
These shortages will likely drive the need for increased productivity and increased installed capacity. The aerospace industry challenge is to assure that product quality is not adversely affected as factories ramp up.
Additionally, today’s Aerospace Industry has inventory spread across a global supply chain. Understanding the amount, location and delivery time of this inventory is critical. When defects make it into the finished products, the need for immediate pinpoint traceability is critical.
Cantier MES for the Aerospace Industry:
Cantier Industry 4.0 Ready MES, is a Single, integrated Manufacturing Suite that encompasses Product Configuration, Planning & Scheduling, WIP Traceability & Genealogy, Data collection, SPC, DCC & Equipment Maintenance Management.
Cantier MES provides a Real Time Two Way communication solution, from the manufacturing floor equipment through IoT devices, directly to the board room. Cantier MES is a key enabler for Smart Manufacturing. Our solution reveals new ways to Increase Capacity while maintaining the highest levels of product quality and safety in an Industry 4.0 world.
Increased Capacity : Capacity improvements are a result of improving Yield, Equipment Uptime, Machine Speed and OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness).
Reduce Risk Exposure to Quality Incidents : Cantier MES ensures that the right raw material, correct tools, equipment and parameters are used, preventing quality incidents.
Improved Supply Chain : Reduce upstream and downstream supply chain disruptions through real-time information and seamless integration with ERP Supply Chain modules.
Real-Time Traceability : Track any product past or present across the entire supply chain. Traceability includes personnel, genealogy of materials used, processes and equipment utilized, quality data collected, anomalies, dates and times.
Reduced Cycle Time/Improved On Time Delivery : With the right resources allocated optimally and keeping the equipment uptime high, Cycle Time reduces and making deliveries On Time becomes predictable.
Improved Yield/Reduced Scrap : With real time Data Collection directly from Manufacturing Equipment, Metrology Equipment, IIoT Sensors and others, the factory has the ability to perform root-cause-analysis, establish preventive solutions and drive down defects.
Compliance : Easier compliance to Customer, Governmental and International standards.
Shop Floor to Top Floor Visibility : With the ERP/Financial integration using the Cantier MES, all levels of management have the real-time visibility of the Shop Floor and the Financial impact.
Flexible Hosting : Cantier MES is available both On Premise and Cloud.
Total Cost of Ownership : Cantier’s industry specific integrated MES suite eliminates multiple software licenses and upgrades, integration cost and customization requirements.
