The quality of the end product sets basis for process optimization. Accurately defined requirements for the weld quality result in best optimization. The aim is to avoid over-kill, which is waste in terms of lean-principles, and to provide solutions that are suited for the task, keeping the whole production chain and economical aspects in mind.
Before a certain process variant can be selected, a number of factors should be considered: How much welding in terms of weld wire volume the products require, what is the targeted cycle time, what are the metallurgical restrinctions related to the base material type, how does the heat input effect geometry during the welding, which are most productive welding positions, what is the required quality level of welds, what risks are related to each processes etc.
PEMA deliveries include in-house developed software solutions required for daily operations. PEMA systems can be integrated with your existing PLM-infrastructure for the following purposes, for example:
Manufacturing Process Management:
- use of manufacturing BOM, (Receipt, Routing)
- use of manufacturing process data
- pruduction planning and scheduling
- material resource planning
Product Data Management
- use of CAD data in 2D/3D formats
- base material data
- part numbers
- Concurrent Engineering possibilities
Each PEMA delivery contains a user-friendly interface which can be extented to communicate with customers' existing PLM solutions.
