Reducing lead times for machine builders

At PPMA 2014, Omron showed how integrated, open controls can be used to calculate vitally important metrics such as Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) and connected with enterprise-level planning systems. In particular, it demonstrated how seamless integration on the open Sysmac automation platform can cut lead times for machine builders, while allowing them and end users to keep their technology options open.

"Machine builders, like their customers, are increasingly looking for 'plug and play' integration of automation technologies, and Sysmac allows configurations to be easily modified or expanded," says product marketing manager for automation Karl Walker. "Traditionally, higher flexibility expectations have meant longer software programming times and higher costs. But Omron's use of a single Integrated Development Environment for software configuration and greater flexibility in programming languages mean that software development times have been dramatically cut. Our goal would be to halve them, which would represent a massive cost saving for machine builders."
