Manufacturing Execution System:
Using the Microsoft Windows operating system and Oracle relational database, PlantMaster offers a collaborative suite of application modules and seamlessly integrates with the customer’s ERP system. Typical applications include real-time production monitoring, scheduling, tool management, Statistical Process Control (SPC), maintenance management and energy monitoring.  
A powerful traceability module allows full tracing from raw material to finished product.
The scheduling system supports Kan-Ban production methods and includes a “tool configurator” which allows the planner to configure his tool on the spot, using available tool frames and inserts.

PlantMaster monitors and synchronizes manufacturing activities both for individual operations and global networks of plants. PlantMaster enables continuous improvement and is especially effective in a lean/six sigma manufacturing environment, meeting the needs of activities such as plastic processing, engineering and assembly operations.
