Solar Turbines Increases Productivity and Flexibility with Associative Process Planning and Intelligent Production Execution
Product design and assembly are complex and continuously changing, making it difficult to design manufacturing processes, train operators and ensure peak productivity. Factories are also filled with disparate machines and systems that do not make production data readily accessible to decision makers. In this session, Jean-Philippe Provencher of PTC outlined a vision for connecting all systems and assets on the factory floor, and deploying role-based applications for workers throughout the factory. Eric C. Horn, PLM Solution Architect at Solar Turbines, outlined how this leading manufacturer of gas turbine engines is using advanced methods to bring work instructions to the shop floor, and exploring new technologies to enhance production execution.
