Panasonic Presents New Distribution System: PanaCIM® MES for Any Factory
SAN DIEGO, CA (February 20, 2013) – Panasonic Factory Solutions Company of America presented a new, self-contained distribution system for its PanaCIM manufacturing execution system (MES) software at the 2013 IPC APEX Expo that is relevant for any factory. The beauty of the new solution builds off the inherent modularity and scalability of PanaCIM MES and makes this deployment solution relevant and cost-effective for any factory regardless of size or IT staffing.
The new server system is completely pre-configured, making it easy to set up in any factory–which is especially important in installations that require digital data collection, yet do not have a dedicated IT staff. When production expands, it is painless to integrate more boxes, redeploy them elsewhere in the factory, or to take a line-level approach that allows continuous production in one area while upgrading in another. Layout options are very flexible and recovery is simple too. Boxes can be swapped out and updated and then go back to helping production in minutes.
“Panasonic is now a global manufacturer, but like many other companies, we stem from humble beginnings. So, we understand manufacturers’ desire for more personalized and smarter manufacturing, yet respect the need to be cost-conscious and ready-to-go” said Hiro Kurata, GM – Software, Panasonic Factory Solutions Company of America. “Customers only need to install the modules they require now. They can easily install upgrades for future needs to remain sustainable and competitive at any time. It’s an ideal manufacturing solution!”
Along with the new system PanaCIM allows access to internet-ready statistics on an entire enterprise’s manufacturing production from anywhere in the world and allows Panasonic to provide service from any location remotely.
