Experts from the SITEK Group of companies led the discussion of the benefits of integrated solutions for enterprises, combining MES-systems and production scheduling (APS-systems) with a package of solutions for three-dimensional modeling, analysis, and automated pre-production (PLM), the integration of software instrument management (TDM).
