Herzlia, Israel and Portland, Ore. — Tecnomatix Technologies Ltd. announces that Freightliner LLC, North America's largest heavy-duty truck manufacturer and a subsidiary of DaimlerChrysler, has implemented eMPower software throughout all of its manufacturing plants nationwide, enabling Freightliner to significantly reduce the time it takes for daily production planning.
Freightliner is using the eMPower eM-Sequencer scheduling tool from Tecnomatix to optimize the assignment of production orders among its assembly lines and to sequence orders per line, with the goal of achieving a constant product mix over time and a balanced workload throughout the day.
eM-Sequencer is a turnkey solution for sequencing and allocating orders to assembly and feeder lines. If many different product variants have to be produced, and sequencing of orders is restricted by a large number of rules, eM-Sequencer can help production planners improve schedule efficiency by reducing the manual effort involved in creating the most efficient schedules. In addition, eM-Sequencer helps production planners generate optimized schedules to define and maintain scheduling rules. The software can be integrated into most existing manufacturing IT environments and can be connected to a wide variety of database management systems.
