Prod-IQ® turns data into a resource
The key to efficiency
The prerequisite for sustainable optimization of all production processes is seamlessly traceable production, at every stage of the value chain. That is why we have developed Prod-IQ®, a modular MES-tool which provides reliable key figures in real time for production management, quality assurance, servicing and maintenance. This creates the basis for intelligent and maximally efficient production processes.
Using the data provided by Prod-IQ®, you can comprehensively evaluate the efficiency of your plant. Whether number of boards, quality, consumption, downtime or reject rates: Prod-IQ® shows directly which adjustments you can make to systematically increase the productivity of your plant. As a user you benefit above all from our high level of industry expertise: Prod-IQ® reflects our entire expertise as company of the Siempelkamp Group. The MES-system is precisely tailored to the requirements of our customers in the wood-based materials industry, but due to its high capacity for integration it is also used in other industries, e.g. in metal forming.
