New Solution from Siemens

by CXOtoday Staff    Oct 20, 2009

Siemens has announced a new software solution that integrates manufacturing planning with the shop floor machining operations associated with producing parts. The new offering maximizes productivity by tightly linking Teamcenter software from Siemens PLM Software with Motion Control Information System (MCIS) from Siemens Motion Control Systems.

The manufacturing process management module of Teamcenter has now been united with two MCIS solution components - Direct Numerical Control (DNC) and Tool Data Information (TDI). The new solution allows companies to manage the process of delivering the correct manufacturing data - such as NC part programs created by computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software, or tool availability information - from a central information management and planning environment to the proper physical manufacturing location on the shop floor.

The Teamcenter to MCIS interface is available immediately from Siemens PLM Software.
