Preactor et Freedom Technologies : du MES à l’Ordonnancement
mercredi 11 février 2009

Freedom Technologies is proud to announce our partnership with Quinn & Associates, the premier distributor of Preactor® software for North America.  With a partnership agreement in place, Freedom now offers two robust Manufacturing Execution Systems, ErrorProof™ for Industrial applications and ID Advantage™ for military applications.  Freedoms’ initiative to include a finite scheduler in our product offering is a logical compliment to our existing data collection, error proofing, UID and traceability applications.

Freedom Technologies interfaces to a wide variety of shop floor controls such as machines, PLC’s, vision systems, among many others to collect data from the shop floor for error proofing, traceability and now scheduling.  Freedom supplies all of the necessary shop floor data to Preactor® to maintain the balance between demand and capacity though a simple connectivity to Preactor®.

Preactor® maintains a production plan consisting of a sequence of operations to fulfill orders generated based on the real capacity of resources.  These can be machines, operator, tooling or anything which is a constraint on the production process.  Through integration into Freedom’s Error Proof™ and ID Advantage™ applications, companies now have the complete capability of an MES system to reduce cost, increase productivity and improve profitability.

“This alliance brings together two well-established products with impressive credentials to add a premier flexible choice in the MES market space,“ says Gregory Quinn, president of Quinn & Associates. “During these uncertain economic times, one essential element for manufacturers’ survival is to minimize investment in inventory and maximize operational efficiency on the shop floor. While many other MES systems are establishing a track record, the combination of Error Proof™ and Preactor® is a practical, zero-risk solution to manufacturers.”
