The Automation and Drives Group of Siemens AG will integrate Factory Logic's Lean Operation suite into its SIPLACE manufacturing solutions. SIPLACE is the Siemens product family name for integrated hardware, software and services solutions to support the entire SMT (Surface Mount Technology) production facility.
Austin, Texas-based Factory Logic's solutions will enable electronics manufacturers to perform advanced production leveling and kanban/supermarket management functions in conjunction with SIPLACE SMT machines and other Siemens solution components.
The lean software directly links production to customer demand, while maintaining the stability required for consistent, reliable, waste-free factory and supply chain operations. Siemens will sell and support the Factory Logic software as an embedded component of SIPLACE solutions globally.
"Siemens is committed to addressing the needs of the electronics manufacturing market with our SIPLACE lean manufacturing solutions," stated Holger Ewald, vice president of Software for Siemens A&D Electronic Assembly Systems. "We selected Factory Logic as one of the most important components for our lean solution because it's the most comprehensive level pull production management system in the market. It's built around well recognized lean scheduling methods and has been proven in large-scale, real-world deployments."
