Siemens To Offer Easy Shift To DX With Opcenter X

Siemens Digital Industries Software has announced the new Opcenter™ X software as part of the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio. Accordingly, this new platform will make digital manufacturing more accessible solution.

It delivers Siemens’ leading Manufacturing Execution System (MES), Scheduling, Quality, and Analytics capabilities. Furthermore, they come in a modular, easy to implement, and inherently collaborative cloud environment.

Built natively for the cloud, Opcenter X lowers the time and cost barrier for small to medium-sized manufacturers. Specifically, these are true in part manufacturing and additive manufacturing industries. Hence, accelerating their digital transformation journey.

Moreover, it enables them to rapidly realize return-on-investment with modular capabilities that adapt as the enterprise matures and requirements grow.

Revolutionize Manufacturing Operations

“Cloud-based digital transformation is a fundamental focus for many manufacturers. (Especially those) seeking to manage today’s product and process complexity, disruptive technologies, supply chain volatility and tightening margins,” said Zvi Feuer, Senior Vice President, Digital Manufacturing Software, Siemens Digital Industries Software.

In addition, Feuer said, “Using disconnected point solutions to solve the rapidly changing challenges facing manufacturing will soon be not only impractical, but detrimental to many. Opcenter X provides a fully integrated solution that grows with a manufacturers’ needs. Thus, enabling them to target critical areas of their business, then expand the digitalization footprint as needed, without the time, cost, and resources associated with integrating disparate, on-premises, legacy systems.”

Siemens has developed Opcenter X to help revolutionize the Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) process. Opcenter X delivers a SaaS-based approach to MOM that can help small and medium businesses become more agile and provide competitive advantages over larger manufacturers. With highly flexible and adaptive solution that is easy to implement, small and medium-sized enterprises will now be able to reconfigure manufacturing lines with relative ease and speed.

Yields Remarkable Results

WKS Door Systems is a specialist design and manufacturer of architectural door products based in Escobedo, Mexico. Specifically, it helped in implementing Opcenter X to assist with monitoring real-time progress of a complex production orders process. Thus, they used Opcenter X to create a new production schedule in 30 minutes (compared to 8 hours) – a reduction of 93 percent – as part of streamlining its production processes and improving efficiency.

“Our collaboration with Siemens to pilot the use of Opcenter X has yielded remarkable results. In addition to providing tools, they’ve offered valuable insights, helping us shape a promising future. As part of Siemens Xcelerator portfolio, Opcenter X has driven our digital transformation, giving greater agility and productivity to our production processes,” said Eduardo Zacarias, Chief Operating Officer, WKS Door Systems.

“Manufacturing operations management (MOM) software is evolving to a modular, native cloud-based architecture,” said James Prestwood, Industry Analyst at ABI Research. “This makes it accessible to a broader spectrum of companies. As a result, manufacturers, particularly the small and medium businesses, can start small, and scale up quickly to become an agile and innovative market leader in their segment of the manufacturing world”.
