Workflow management

Parameterization of materials master data in Plant iT Workflow

Plant Integrate iT provides an efficient MES workflow management system for production-relevant business processes. The database-supported system can be used for managing and monitoring automatic and manual processes in the production environment. This includes, for example, order processing, quality assurance (e.g. sampling) and the support of logistics processes or the collection and provision of data which arises during production and in the production environment. This data is used as the basis for production-relevant reporting and as a data source for higher-order systems. The Plant iT Workflow add-on can only be used in combination with our MES solution Plant Integrate iT. It can, however, also be applied with existing external process control systems.
The workflow management system can be used for the following MES areas:

  • Warehouse and inventory management (e.g. product and material parameters, handling units, stock taking)
  • Production management (e.g. recipe/BOM management, production logistics)
  • Quality management (e.g. management of specification values)
  • Maintenance and servicing (e.g. operating hour counter, machine maintenance, operating cycle counter)
