'UK manufacturing sector failing to meet global market standards'

09 November 2012

Critical Software Technologies is partnering with Critical Manufacturing to help manufacturing plants boost efficiency, reduce costs and improve quality through implementing its advanced manufacturing software solution, cmNavigo.

Critical Manufacturing’s product cmNavigo is a Manufacturing Execution and Intelligence Solution (MES), specifically designed to monitor and optimise production lines at advanced manufacturing facilities. The partnership aims to increase awareness of cmNavigo in the UK, through a UK established company with local market focus.

“The high-tech manufacturing industry is evolving at such a rapid pace, but many plants are still relying on reactive rather than proactive solutions when monitoring critical production processes, which can be potentially damaging to their business. Many are also using legacy computer systems and inefficient processes that don’t meet the requirements of the global manufacturing market.”

“By working with the experienced team at Critical Manufacturing we aim to both widen our market opportunities and show those working in the manufacturing industry how cmNavigo can benefit their business and help them meet these global standards,” says Brian Luff, chairman at Critical Software Technologies.

Designed for the semiconductor, solar and electronics industries, the solution is based on a set of tools capable of modelling a manufacturing plant to a high level of detail. Creating this conceptual framework enables the user to build, and to view, a realistic model of the manufacturing facility and as many different workflows as are necessary to describe production processes for all the products and variants being manufactured.

Users can also trace production in rich detail and in real-time and the model becomes the means of presenting and accessing the data, immediately and intuitively.
