PSI Presents Dynamic Production Control at the Hannover Fair 2017

From 24 to 28 April 2017, PSI subsidiary PSI Automotive & Industry GmbH will be launching its integrated manufacturing scenario at the Hanover Trade Fair Show (Hall 7, Stand A24). This scenario demonstrates dynamic production planning and control based on various PSI products from different segments. With the aid of a practical example, PSI will also be demonstrating the application of IoT and RFID technologies.

The trade fair scenario is based on various PSI software modules, that by means of advanced scheduling algorithms and real-data analysis, control process in an optimal way. It is defined by demand-driven approaches, i.e. engineer to order (ETO), make to order (MTO) and serial production, while taking into account customer requirements for as well highly specified orders as a wide variety of products at short notice (mass customization). The solution enables KPI-optimised production planning and sequencing, guaranteeing the flexibility and autonomy of future manufacturing systems, such as swarm production.

Strapping machine manufacturer and PSI customer Mosca GmbH will be using the SoniXs TR-6 Pro to demonstrate on the stand how the process of ordering and storing strapping can be simplified by combining RFID tags with PSI software.

PSI will also be offering an insight into solutions for optimising decision support as well as production control and process automation systems – also in the field of MES with the optimisation software  Qualicision®. Qualicision® optimisation logic is an integral part of many PSI software tools.

A further highlight is the PSI Logistics Suite 2017, including the warehouse management system PSIwms Release 4.0 and the strategic standard system PSIglobal. Numerous new features and apps, plus PSIwms cloud offerings show customers and prospects the potential for optimising process control, increasing efficiency, and warehouse and supply chain flexibility.

PSI's presence at the trade fair demonstrates the company's capacity to innovate and emphasises its focus on production and Industry 4.0 issues.
