The technology associated with manufacturing software fits exactly into the Group’s business profile and when the opportunity to purchase established manufacturing software specialists Seiki Systems arose in 2002 the decision to acquire the company was made.
Since then Seiki has grown into an established brand in its own right. With a team of eighteen people and a solution offering that extends from shop floor DNC software through to a complete manufacturing execution and production planning system, Seiki is able to service a wide range of small to medium (SME) manufacturers. The company has over 400 customers globally, ranging from well known organisations to small privately owner engineering companies.
Seiki has evolved its solution through improved integration between modules such as graphical production planning, shop floor data collection, resource monitoring and shop floor communications in the form of work queues. It’s not necessarily enough just to plan jobs accurately; companies want to address the entire works order process, from top floor to shop floor. Furthermore the solution has to be scalable. The desire for this increased level of process control and visibility is not just limited to larger organisations running thousands of operations. There is an increasing awareness of the tangible benefits to be gained from adopting technologies that can really support business growth throughout the manufacturing industry.
The Seiki solution comprises of a suite of modular software, including:
- Enterprise resource planning
- Real-time graphical work scheduling
- Shop floor communications – DNC and paperless manufacturing
- Shop floor data collection and machine performance monitoring
- W.I.P tracking
- Performance analysis and reporting
