Simatic IT for Manufacturing Execution and Intelligence offers customers in the process, discrete and life sciences industries a completely new depth and quality of information from shop floor production data to top floor management level. The key benefits are faster and more targeted access to information such as production, quality assurance and maintenance data, because it is now available in a fully integrated system.
The MI accesses the Manufacturing Execution System (MES) database directly. The database contains real-time information from the production processes of one or more production plants, enabling companies to identify performance fluctuations quickly and to take the necessary remedial action efficiently.
Simatic IT for Manufacturing Execution and Intelligence brings together information from a wide range of data sources, even from more than one location. Visual representations of relevant information provide users at production, plant and management levels with the necessary decision-making resources for their area of responsibility.
Users at production and management level need meaningful information to support their optimisation processes. This includes data relating to orders, materials, plant capacity utilisation and production quality and costs. Role-based information that is easy to interpret forms the basis for making reliable, fast decisions, and is vital for making continuous improvements. To achieve this, Business Intelligence (BI) information needs to be combined with Manufacturing Intelligence (MI). Since BI solutions cannot be used at production level, companies have an interest in creating added value through the operational advantages of an MES system. Simatic IT achieves this added value by integrating the functions from the Manufacturing Execution and Manufacturing Intelligence systems. This facilitates communication between production and management level without the need for additional interfaces. Companies in all industries should benefit from this flexible, customizable, structured, role-based, industry-specific intelligence from production to management level.
Simatic IT for Manufacturing Execution and Intelligence brings together information from a wide range of data sources, even from more than one location. Users can create balanced scorecards with the help of industry-specific KPIs, set the parameters to be analysed, define the drill-down level of the information required and access tried and tested industry-specific libraries. Simatic IT for Manufacturing Execution and Intelligence records, structures and visualizes production, quality and maintenance data in one view in line with users’ specifications. Visual representations of relevant information provide users at production, plant and management levels with the necessary decision-making resources for their area of responsibility.
The information can be accessed centrally or remotely via a mobile device like a Microsoft Windows phone. Wherever users are located, they can call up scorecards, analyse faults and check production options.
Simatic IT for Manufacturing Execution and Intelligence bridges the gap between the different IT layers in production and management, thereby increasing the efficiency of a company’s production process and creating direct added value.

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".
Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
