Services for factories
We enable smart manufacturing for factories
We understand the challenges that manufacturers face, and we offer a strong portfolio of automation software products and complimentary consulting services to help you increase uptime, throughput, and production efficiency.
We provide complete manufacturing software solutions unique to your particular manufacturing process. These solutions can include standard data collection from equipment or can be factory-wide control solutions connecting thousands of pieces of equipment within one factory or between multiple facilities.
In a turnkey engagement, we manage the entire software lifecycle, turning your data into action. You can choose from the following services:
- Full Manufacturing Execution System (MES) based on our PEER FACTORY® framework of components to tailor a solution to meet specific factory needs.
- Extensions to your existing MES for things like performance monitoring, maintenance management, or Advanced Process Control (APC).
- Integration with material handling systems for traceability.
- Equipment interface (EI) and advanced station controller development and integration.
- Automation Capabilities Management (ACM) to help device manufacturers understand and overcome standards-related automation issues or to reduce a factory’s start-up costs by accurately documenting automation requirements.
- On-site acceptance testing and equipment troubleshooting to ensure quick and easy acceptance into the automated manufacturing environment.
In some cases, our factory customers use our products in their development projects and we help with the implementation. In these situations, PEER Group handles all of the project management activities so your team can focus your attention elsewhere.
Outsourcing and staff augmentation
Sometimes, expert PEER Group engineering resources become an integrated part of your team for a specified duration, providing manufacturing IT consulting, following your development process and using your assets. The work can occur remotely with PEER Group resources working from our offices, or at your site.
