Siemens Opcenter expands on the company’s manufacturing operations management (MOM) software by combining products into a cloud-ready portfolio designed to help manufacturers meet demands for production efficiency, quality, visibility and reduced time to production.

The portfolio integrates MOM capabilities including advanced planning and scheduling, manufacturing execution, quality management, manufacturing intelligence and performance, formulation, specification, and laboratory management. Siemens Opcenter combines products including Camstar, SIMATIC IT, Preactor, R&D Suite and QMS. A web-based user interface provides an adaptive user experience and facilitates the implementation of new capabilities and additional components while reducing training efforts, according to the company.

Siemens Opcenter adopts what the company calls an extensibility paradigm, which enables users to deploy, configure, extend and integrate it with other systems across the value chain, including product lifecycle management (PLM), enterprise resource planning (ERP) and shop floor automation solutions. It provides end-to-end visibility into production, letting decision-makers identify areas for improvement within product design and associated manufacturing processes, making operational adjustments for efficient production.

Opcenter is designed so that users can achieve operational flexibility and run the same applications on mobile devices. The entire portfolio is cloud-ready and can be deployed on-premise, in the cloud, or both for potential IT cost reductions and scalability.
