PROXIA MES Industry solutions – in detail

Machine/Plant construction

Machine/Plant construction is subject to very short innovation cycles. New technologies must be quickly and efficiently considered and implemented in development and production. Factors such as quality, costs and delivery flexibility determine the value chain in this industry. PROXIA offers MES solutions that support cross-departmental communication processes – transparency and consistency, all in “real time”.

PROXIA MES-Software features:

  • Comparative key indicator analysis
  • Two-way communication with the shop floor
  • Personnel resources planning

Contract manufacturing

Contract manufacturers are a special area of discrete manufacturing. They provide services for other companies, e.g. completing semi-finished products. As a result, products only pass through part of the value chain and the contract manufacturer is faced with many different customers and a wide range of products. A high level of flexibility, wide range of customer requirements and wide variety of production and process flows present a real challenge for the MES system. The modular PROXIA MES system offers the ideal way to meet the needs of this industry.

PROXIA MES-Software features:

  • Needs-based software structuring
  • High degree of process standardization
  • Efficient use of resources
  • Increased flexibility

Automotive industry

In the automotive sector, terms such as “just in time“ or “just in sequence” are part of the daily routine, as are strict quality requirements and standards – both national and international – which need to be met day after day. PROXIA MES-Software provides consistent solutions that meet these requirements in terms of quality and production processes.

PROXIA MES-Software features:

  • Complete process documentation
  • Precise drill-down functionality
  • Cross-departmental planning

Tool/Mold construction

The challenge in tool and mold construction is based on product quality and the needs of customers. Maximum precision – for serial production to a batch size of one – is a requirement that must be met by this industry. Efficiency and automation pose an enormous challenge, especially with regard to small batch sizes. PROXIA CAQ, BDE and MDE solutions for example, can help you overcome these challenges. They bring transparency and consistency to production.

PROXIA MES-Software features:

  • Detailed component documentation
  • Detailed resource planning
  • Securing repetitive processes

Plastics industry

The plastics industry is dominated by international business. Global locations are mostly the result of a need to respond to international market changes just in time. In addition, value added processes are geared directly at the customer. Automated processes far beyond the company’s premises are key requirements for companies in the plastics industry. With PROXIA MES-Software you can achieve this consistency across several locations online. Capturing data and quality control with regard to formula components and viscosity are crucial in plastic polymerization and processing to avoid rejects or higher costs. PROXIA MES-Software can also help here.

PROXIA MES-Software features:

  • Automated data acquisition
  • Integration of statistical quality management systems
  • Secure material flow

    Exact, precise, with an almost limitless service life – these are the main features of countless Swiss products, and nowhere is this more true than in precision engineering. The Swiss company Ypsotec AG is very much part of this tradition, making best use of the expertise associated with these features. This manufacturer of components for the medicinal industry and automation technology based in Solothurn, uses PROXIA MES software with scheduling system and BDE for production planning of 120 individual resources and up to 9,000 process steps. It enables Ypsotec to flexibly plan and map complex assembly processes in detail, while allowing it to consistently reduce cycle times and to further increase productivity. The excellent product quality offered by Ypsotec AG and the improvements resulting from the use of PROXIA MES modules mean that the company is well positioned to compete internationally in the long term.

    • More competitive – production costs are modest despite the “Swiss high price island”
    • Transparent production thanks to optimised reporting
    • Faster – cycle times for orders significantly reduced
    • Improved liquidity – 15% less warehouse stock and WiP
    • Delivery reliability – early detection of potential delivery delays
    • Higher performance – 9,000 process steps planned simultaneously
    • More precise scheduling – tailored production planning for individual areas
