Camstar Enterprise Platform von Siemens PLM Software

The global platform of Production and Quality Management

The Camstar Enterprise Platform by Siemens PLM Software is a universal useable Manufacturing Execution System (MES). It opens to the manufacturer a whole new variety of opportunities in regards to innovation, adjustment and even success. The ‘Camstar Medical Device Suite’ and ‘Camstar Semiconductor Suite’ are part of the MOM Portfolio’s by Siemens PLM Software. They offer the manufacturer the possibility to produce in less time more transparent, better, faster and, to top it off, even more cost efficient. The software presents itself as highly configurational and scalable as a central management and monitoring tool as well as with its ‘out of the box’ functionality.

The innovative software solution of the Camstar Enterprise Platform allows a significant increase of product quality during the manufacturing process. This takes place within the complete product life-cycle. Beginning at the design through to planning, supply management, quality management, stretching to production and even to customer service. Within the frame of this closed loop control system products are easier designed and the adjoin production processes are structured leaner and more effective.

znt-Richter is in close cooperation with Siemens PLM Software in the area of Manufacturing Operations Management especially when it comes to analysis, implementation, maintenance and support of the Camstar Enterprise Platform in Europe and South East Asia.

On the basis of the Camstar Enterprise Platform configurations typical for industrial use were developed like the Camstar Semiconductor Suite and the Camstar Medical Device Suite, which efficiently portray all the needed requirements in industrial manufacturing.

Camstar Semiconductor Suite

The Camstar Semiconductor Suite is the for the branch typical configuration of the Camstar Enterprise Platform. This Platform replaces systematically outdated manufacturing systems and isolated solutions, which are no longer able to keep pace with the demanding and constantly changing requirements of the Semiconductor production. >>> [more]

The Camstar Semiconductor Suite is designed especially for the front-end -, back-end - and test production cycle. It offers extensive and on the spot usable functions, which are typical for the branch, a high level of configurability and an exhaustive interoperability with other business systems. Owned to the availability of information in real time, test results, yield and even statistic quality controls are quality and productivity increased during the manufacturing process.

Camstar Medical Device Suite

A MES system specially designed for the needs of the medical device industry is the Medical Device Suite. It handles branch specific challenges such as traceability (eDHCR – electronic Device History Record), transparency, adherence to regulatory stipulations and the striving for a paperless production. >>> [more]

The process of a closed quality control loop for the production process is characterized by seven points:

  • Early warnings and notifications
  • Intelligent root cause analysis
  • Risk based management
  • Parallel running processes and product development
  • Enforcement of action
  • Assurance of efficiency of correction measures
  • Global transparency and coordination

This approach provides a framework for constructive collaboration in design, planning, supplier management, quality management, manufacturing and customer service, which accelerates continuous improvement and continuous innovation and simultaneously optimizes the product quality.

Application Area:

The Camstar Medical Device Suite has already been used with great success by various manufacturers of medical technology products and diagnostic devices in areas such as diagnostics, cardiovascular medicine, hospital and wound care, diabetes, renal disease, blood, ophthalmology and tomography.

The comprehensive industry-specific functionality as well as the extremely high flexibility and eas-of-use of this solution, coupled with the industrial expertise of the Camstar's global service team and znt-Richter, enables a successful implementation in a wide range of production environments:

  • For highly complex products with hierarchical parts lists and with a large number of configuration possibilities for the production equipment and instruments, the transparency with regard to traceability (up- and downward) is extremely important. Camstar ensures that the correct configuration is selected (the right components, the accurate tests, the correct software downloads, etc.), and also offers easy evaluation of components., tests and more.
  • For companies that use valuable and expensive equipment for their manufacturing process offers Camstar Medical Device Suite functionalities to analyze plant efficiency (OEE) and plant utilization.
  • For operator-dependent processes, enforcing certain operations is extremely important. The Camstar Medical Device Suite provides detailed use and operator metrics to better understand various influences in the manufacturing process: training efficacy, error rate of manual operations, or time lapse to achieve desired quality. These detailed metrics can be called up immediately without additional effort, because the data necessary for the analysis has already been recorded in the system.

Solution:

The configurability, scalability, the intuitive handling, the built in compliance and the tested implementation model from Camstar leads to extraordinary and real-measurable results for our customers in the field of manufacturing medical technology products and diagnostic devices.
