Integrated Modules & Business Processes

To get and keep a complete overview of imported orders and reservations – easy and fast - during the step of production planning and –preperation is the most important. Based on that you can create and manage production jobs which make sense.

Functionalities and Benefits

  • Utilization of views thanks to open data base and easy view concept
  • Display of every necessarry information in different information levels
  • Creation of production jobs by complete orders, items or parts possible

The A+W Production Detailed Scheduling allows you to organize and control the glass flow through the shop floor. Avoid resorting after a process step, save room for racks, make the stacking of glass onto racks easier.

Functionalities and Benefits

  • Assignement of lites to glass stacks -> onto A-racks and harp racks
  • Determiniation of production- and cutting sequence
  • Printout of rack preparation lists and sorting lists
  • Management of production flows and multistep production
  • Predefined „Organizations“ based on 40 years global production experience

By considering the defined production sequences and optimization parameters (e.g. grinding allowances and breakout trims for shapes) A+W Production calculates the best yield possible.

Functionalities and Benefits

  • Yield Optimization based on latest algorithms
  • Consideration of sequence from sequence optimization and / or A+W Rack Optimizer
  • Manual adding of shapes possible
  • Manual editing of optimization parameters possible (trims, x / y direction, costs for z-cuts …)
  • Nesting of shapes (Add-on A+W Shape Optimizer)
