The partnership adds new capabilities to the AVEVA Manufacturing Execution System (MES) in terms of visual planning and scheduling, multi-plant production planning and production schedule optimization, further broadening AVEVA’s portfolio of Industry 4.0 manufacturing solutions.
The combined offering leverages specific expertise from both companies to further optimize performance across the value chain for manufacturers seeking to deploy integrated production planning and execution systems in order to help increase their agility and supply chain resilience and help to deliver increased business returns in a volatile market.
As a manufacturing planning and scheduling system provider, PlanetTogether helps to resolve production and operational constraints and its integration with AVEVA MES enables supply chain planners to conduct more realistic, integrated sales and operations planning based on actual plant capacity and material availability, with increased visibility to progress against plan for on-time delivery at the lowest cost.
Advanced Planning and Scheduling, delivered by PlanetTogether, simultaneously plans and schedules production based on available materials, labor, and machine capacity. The software, which has been widely deployed in the Food and Beverage (F&B) and Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) manufacturing industries, provides a strong vertical fit for AVEVA MES. The integration of both production planning and manufacturing execution into a single digital system represents a next step for manufacturers that helps to increase their growth and profitability.
