Team Plastique selects Siemens Preactor APS Software to plan production line

December 5, 2013 - PREACTOR International Ltd – A Siemens Company, and a world leader in planning and scheduling software, today announces the deployment of its solutions at Team Plastique.

Team Plastique has over 25 years of experience in the design and the execution of projects in thermoforming, technical assembly and thermal coating. As a subcontractor of Fortune 100 industrial companies, Team Plastique supports the realization and the achievement of manufacturing projects in a wide range of areas.
Team Plastique chose Preactor Advanced Planning and Scheduling solutions for its plant in Loire Atlantique (West Coast of France) to display and compare workload and capacity in real time by production line. Displaying information swiftly helps Team Plastique anticipate variability and increase production lead-time reliability.

The Director of Manufacturing at Team Plastique, says: "The satisfaction of customers, who are increasingly demanding with respect to lead-times, is not something that only international corporations are facing. In today’s volatile market and as a small sized business, Team Plastique is more than ever concerned by this priority. We didn't have a visual planning tool with finite capacity to provide very short-term workload visibility and capacity across our production lines based on material and resource availability”.

Roland Melzer, head of Siemens Industry Automation Systems, Software, comments, “Siemens Industry Automation Division offers a comprehensive Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) portfolio of software solutions which will enable customers to meet all of their production and logistic software needs.
“Preactor Advanced Planning and Scheduling is extending our international lead in the industry software market which already includes solutions for Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), Manufacturing Execution System (MES), SCADA, Business Intelligence and Quality.
“These key components can either be implemented independently as required or as integrated project solutions to increase and maximize customer productivity, savings and competitiveness.”

Team Plastique added “Preactor is the right solution for us to manage our manufacturing complexity and planning workload while shortening our delivery lead-times. The Preactor solution has a proven track record in planning and scheduling. It was also an important factor of the decision for us to select an international company like Siemens”.
