Fastems Manufacturing Management Software (MMS) is a progressive solution for automatic production processing, complete with planning, controlling, visualizing and monitoring capabilities. Based on a manufacturer’s current order and all required or available resources, the software plans the production directly from an ERP system. The system administrates all CNC programs needed for the production processes in addition to all tool data. It also monitors tool life and prompts the operator for new tooling if required. If an unforeseen situation should arise that was not included in the production, such as a particularly urgent order, it can automatically rearrange the schedule in real time, keeping the changed production process priorities in consideration.
