3YOURMIND’s Agile Manufacturing Execution System Features Direct Integration with AM Ordering
3YOURMIND presents a new product, an AM software that automatically recommends production schedules based on ordered parts.
November 8, 2018
In the process of “moving the world to Agile Manufacturing,” 3YOURMIND is announcing the launch of its latest product: Agile Manufacturing Execution System. The company will present its product at formnext 2018. The agile manufacturing system expands the company's end-to-end additive manufacturing (AM) workflow from the part ordering platform to production scheduling. This system was developed to manage the scheduling and prioritization of parts, and will improve the digital management of AM Production.
The initial features to be presented tat formnext will be Smart Part Prioritization and Agile Production Scheduling. The most significant improvement for 3D service managers on the production floor is provided by the data-based recommendation engine. When AM jobs are created, the system automatically suggests which parts to assign and when to assign them. The company’s management has stated that they already have a roadmap to develop the Agile MES even further, based on the requirements of their customers, some of the biggest producers in Germany.
Smart Part Prioritization
The Smart Part Prioritization is automatically generated from the incoming orders on the 3YOURMINDplatform, which speeds up the information flow and production decision making. Keeping all order and part data submitted by the client in a single interface increases the transparency of the process. But more importantly, using the delivery dates and production specifications, the system classifies parts for jobs based on production priority and machine availability. This creates higher efficiency in resource management and machine use.
Agile Production Scheduling
In the Agile Production Scheduling, jobs are assigned based on Custom Workflows that define the specific production steps, post-processing and quality control requirements of each part. The engineers in charge of the production planning can schedule jobs based on machine capacities. The dynamic interface makes it easy to adjust production when new orders need to be added. Based on the planner’s nesting behavior, the software recommends which parts can be scheduled in one job. The Agile MES also allows to reschedule failed production and manage maintenance with a single click.
3YOURMIND will be at formnext 2018 at Booth G70 in Hall 3.1.
3YOURMIND provides software for additive manufacturing workflows. The solutions are designed to standardize, automate and optimize processes within companies that are implementing or already using additive manufacturing. The company is headquartered in Berlin with offices in the U.S., France and Poland.
