Hypertherm releases Production Manager for CAD/CAM nesting software
- November 30, 2021
Hypertherm has released the Production Manager optional module for its ProNest CAD/CAM nesting software.
The new web-based module is designed to improve productivity, maximize machine up-time, boost on-time delivery, and increase material utilization.
Production Manager integrates with Hypertherm’s EDGE Connect CNC to automatically capture machine data without operator intervention. It also displays real-time production data so team members across an organization can track the status of job orders, the production schedule, and pending inventory requirements.
Additional features include:
- Dashboard view – provides production stats and trends in a single view. Colour-coded status alerts help users understand on-screen information while an interactive display allows them to drill down for more detail.
- Real-time information – real-time machine data from the CNC is transferred to Production Manager, which lets users track job progress from pending to in-production to actual completion time, making it easier to respond to customer inquiries and forecast the production schedule.
- Flexible intervention – users can cancel or hold orders to add or remove parts based on last-minute changes. They can view machine backlogs and ensure loads are evenly distributed across cutting machines.
- Remote access – users can access Production Manager via a computer, mobile phone, or tablet anytime and anywhere they have a secured network or VPN connection.
