Jason Spera, CEO and Co-founder of Aegis Software, a global provider of Manufacturing Operations Management Software (MOM), was recently interviewed by manufacturing journalist, TR Cutler for Automation.com magazine. Spera discussed the value of new MES/MOM solutions for discrete manufacturers. Read more here.
“Automate to Order (ATO) involves another layer of complexity in real-time production flexibility to achieve single-piece product flow at high-volume efficiency. The new expectation of Automate to Order, where the parts are chosen by the consumer, must be physically modified to fulfill their requirement…it is not merely part swapping. It may involve cutting, bending, finishing, drilling, and other physical modifications to make the final assembly adding to manufacturing complexity. Achieving ATO in high efficiency production is a tremendous challenge,” noted Spera.
According to Spera, “Off-the-shelfmanufacturing execution system (MES) and manufacturing operations management (MOM) are transforming the factory floor. Factory floor automation used to require heavily customized software overlaying the automation layer. It was the only way to achieve any efficiency. Now, this can be done with off-the-shelf MES/MOM.
Spera also shared that this shift is an important development for factory floor automation. It extends the luxury of high-efficiency personalized production from the sole domain of giant manufacturers, with legions of in-house developers. Production control software nearly in real-time is accessible to any manufacturer. It effectively democratizes production personalization so any manufacturer can support it.
