AVEVA, a provider of industrial software, driving Digital Transformation and sustainability, has strategically partnered with PlanetTogether, an Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) platform provider, to bring scheduling optimisation capabilities to manufacturers looking to deliver Digital Transformation and sustainable solutions across their industrial operations.
The partnership adds robust new capabilities to the AVEVA Manufacturing Execution System (MES) in terms of visual planning and scheduling, multi-plant production planning and production schedule optimisation, further broadening AVEVA’s portfolio of Industry 4.0 manufacturing solutions.
The combined offering leverages the strengths of both companies, to optimise performance across the value chain for manufacturers seeking to deploy integrated production planning and execution systems in order to increase their agility and supply chain resilience and deliver increased business returns in a volatile market.
Jim Cerra, Co-founder and CEO, PlanetTogether, said: “Our partnership with AVEVA enables us to broaden our reach to new players across the industrial ecosystem. We chose to work with them because they stood head and shoulders above the industry in terms of delivering transformative digital technology to enhance customer digital collaboration in order to drive higher operational efficiency, quality and agility to maintain a competitive edge in today’s dynamic markets.”
Harpreet Gulati, Senior Vice President, Planning and Operations Business Unit, AVEVA, said: “In the last year alone, the landscape for manufacturers has changed irrevocably, driven by the increasing need for enterprise agility, sustainability and value chain optimisation. Manufacturers are integrating their operations into their supply chain systems, as a result of the impact of pandemic,” commented. Gulati added that: “Our partnership also speaks to our joint commitment to sustainability. Together, PlanetTogether and AVEVA enable customers to add sustainability drivers, such as energy use or greenhouse gas (GHG) to the optimisation rules of the production schedule, resulting in less waste and more responsible use of resources for production.”Click below to share this article
