Panasonic Seminar Addresses the Manufacturing Industry through Smart Factory Solutions

Panasonic India addressed the manufacturing need of the electronics industry through the recently concluded seminar. Smart Factory Solutions were introduced for products and solutions across “Any Mix, Any Volume”.

Panasonic has the distinctive ability to provide total solutions beyond the production line. While we can provide best-in-class hardware and software tools from our own portfolio, which allows us to provide turnkey solutions for various application and business models, that it’s necessary for them to be relevant in the Smart Factory. We have the capabilities to integrate with many complementary partners and in case if it is new protocol and can develop interface tools for the same.

Present at the occasion, Mr Vishal Dahiya, General Manager, Panasonic India, said, “In today’s connected world, manufacturing units must be smart. They should be able to seamlessly integrate with different factory automation systems into a single entity for traceability of any product, any process, regardless of manufacturing mix or volume. And, a Panasonic, we focus on connectivity and new innovations for manufacturing that are Industry 4.0-ready. These solutions are designed to go beyond Machine-to-Machine interface to offer better outputs.”

Some of the solutions introduced were:
M2M and business systems integration via PanaCIM,
Panasonic Corporation has developed Industrial 4.0 solutions (PanaCIM Enterprise Edition Modules)
Scheduler Software (for PPC)
PanaCIM WIP (Inventory, Traceability, Production Monitoring and Production Analysis)
PanaCIM MMS (Maintenance Management Module)
Panasonic NPM-DX

These modules have been developed on latest technology stacks of .Net Framework 4.0 ASP.Net MVC, HTML5,CSS3, SQL Server 2012.

Moreover, the newly introduced NPM-DX is a next-generation platform that leapfrogs part range, speed, and capability while reducing resource requirements with novel approaches to automated error recovery for uninterrupted production. Using their collective expertise, Panasonic is focused on transforming the manufacturing process from isolated silos to a “lean, agile, and integrated” ecosystem.  Specific to M2M communication, we are using iLNB, PanaCIM and other software capabilities to help machines talk to each other–across the aisle or the globe.

The equipment are building blocks to solve the challenges. It’s the software that combines data and provides salient information to verify production results, predict necessary operator actions, trigger changeover activities, and even trace products across the factory.

Over the years, Panasonic has built a broad framework that has matured to be very comprehensive and flexible—easily integrating third party platforms. Panasonic’s core competencies allow us the opportunity to collaborate with partner companies to provide a turnkey solution integrated with PanaCIM.

In addition, different customers and different customer locations (if a global entity) often have different vendor preferences for complementary technologies. We can achieve the same level of optimization no matter whose equipment is included.
