PlantStar 4.0 MES helps manufacturers optimize for growth

If you're ready to make your manufacturing facility safer, and to save both time and money all the way through your operation, then step right up. 

This is the final segment in our series on SMART technology and digital transformation (DX) strategy.Here's a brief recap.


We started with the case for CONNECTING all your machinery, materials, and business applications. When you have Big Data - delivering the right information to the right people at the right time - you can make decisions for your factory that move the needle on your bottom line.

THAT'S making a difference.


We discussed how digital innovations like PlantStar 4.0 manufacturing execution system (MES) allow manufacturers to better MANAGE inventory, adhere to recipe specifications, and reduce cost of production. Overcome obstacles like worker inefficiency or faulty product with real-time visibility. Run lean. Be audit-ready.

THAT'S making a difference.


Our most recent post focused on use cases where MES solutions increases your ability to VALIDATE what you may only have been guessing at. PlantStar 4.0 MES incorporates machine learning that gives you data validation to ensure product quality from the get-go in real time, rather than waiting till a run is completed or a shift ends, to find out there's been a problem.

THAT'S making a difference.


Our final DX innovation strategy is OPTIMIZE. Now that you've got all the connections giving you all the data, and you can see where the problem areas are, this is the time to leverage that data to eliminate sources of delay, waste, and inefficiency.

How do you do that? We're glad you asked.

PlantStar 4.0 MES is a powerful software solution that presents data you need in easy to understand, at-a-glance dashboards and charts.

Don't waste valuable time creating reports by hand: PlantStar 4.0 has efficient reporting processes that automatically gather the data you need and present it in ways that make sense.

Our customizable interface lets you rearrange elements like our machine status cards to suit the preferences of whoever is looking at the data.

So you can optimize. Do more. Faster. Easier.

Why is this important? We're willing to bet that what you don't know is probably hurting you - that is, slowing down your production or gobbling up capital that you could allocate elsewhere.

Why would we think that? Because we've been helping manufacturers just like you since 1976. One of our customers was able to increase its OEE by 30% within a few months of PlantStar implementation. Another customer eliminated an entire shift after optimizing productivity on the other two, with our software. Yet another customer has been able to run lights-out production on nights and weekends for years, with zero overhead, because our software monitors the production processes and alerts if an anomaly occurs.

Why stick with what you've always done, when SYSCON PlantStar can make a difference for you?
