June 10, 2019 - Siemens Digital Industries Software announced the immediate availability of Siemens Opcenter software, a portfolio of software solutions for manufacturing operations management (MOM). Siemens Opcenter expands on the heritage of Siemens’ MOM software by uniting these products in a single, connected cloud-ready portfolio with a user experience that can help manufacturers meet demands for production efficiency.
Siemens Opcenter integrates MOM capabilities including planning and scheduling, manufacturing execution, quality management, manufacturing intelligence and performance, and formulation, specification and laboratory management. The portfolio combines products including Camstar software, SIMATIC IT suite, Preactor, R&D Suite and QMS Professional into a single portfolio that unifies these products and leverages synergies between them. A fully web-based, consistent, adaptive and comfortable user interface implemented throughout the Siemens Opcenter portfolio offers a situationally adapted user experience and facilitates the implementation of capabilities and additional components while reducing training efforts.
Siemens Opcenter adopts an extensibility paradigm to deploy, configure, extend and integrate with other systems across the value chain, including product lifecycle management (PLM), enterprise resource planning (ERP) and shop floor automation solutions. It provides end-to-end visibility into production, helping enable decision makers to readily identify areas for improvement within product design and associated manufacturing processes, and to make operational adjustments for production. Fully enabled for mobility, customers can achieve operational flexibility and run the same applications on a variety of smart devices. The entire portfolio is cloud-ready and can be deployed on-premise, on the cloud or in combination, providing for scalability. Siemens Opcenter supports the digital enterprise, leveraging the digital twins for design, production, and performance.
In addition to launching Siemens Opcenter, Siemens also announced a new version of its Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) portfolio: Siemens Opcenter Execution, formerly SIMATIC IT and Camstar. New features in these releases focus on smart devices, mobility, and integration capabilities to optimize data flows and availability.
