Innovative Software Solutions for MES Environment on the Entire Shop Floor
ASYS offers the largest product portfolio of machines and Material Logistics Solutions for the entire shop floor in the market. With the integration of Motives Software GmbH into the ASYS Group, the potential of the extensive software solutions of both companies is maximized. In addition to the already existing machine- and line-related ASYS Software Solutions PULSE and OIC (Overall Inline Communication), the Factory Conductor from motives is a additional software tool for the factory level.
The Factory Conductor is a central element that is used for ASYS in the field of Material Logistics in the software "Material Manager". It is a modular link between ERP and the production lines and supports process optimization in the entire electronics production. In addition, the software coordinates the multi-level material flow between the main warehouse, production warehouse and the production lines. Thus ASYS offers a broad software product portfolio in the MES environment for the entire shop floor.
The intensive cooperation between motives and the ASYS Group is also reflected in the fact that Managing Director Eduard Kirstgen has taken over responsibility as Product Manager in the Software Solutions division at ASYS since January 2020. Eduard Kirstgen describes the cooperation: "We are very confident with this step to become a member of the ASYS Group. The cooperation is working out excellently, as both companies are pursuing the same goals. The topic of smart factory is receiving a strong boost with the software tool Factory Conductor, which is advancing additional innovations such as the "dynamic magazine control" in the production, the "automatic planner" of the material flow or the "visualization of operating data". For the future, the portfolio of Industry 4.0 solutions will be expanded on hardware and software level. According to our mission "Automate, Digitalize and Connect" we want to develop continuously in all fields and offer new innovative solutions. In addition, topics such as cloud solutions and BigData will also be included in the future".
With the participation of ASYS in motives Software GmbH two years ago, the already existing successful cooperation was further intensified. With this strategic investment ASYS accelerates the development of its portfolio of intelligent, customer-specific solutions and expands its software competence for the smart factory. The newest developments in this field will be presented at the 11th ASYS Group Technology Days in November.
