The Innovative, Strategic Knowledge Partner
ATS delivers projects from system design to full implementation, roll-out (globally if required) and final user acceptance with flexible training packages and 24/7 service level agreements. ATS frequently works closely with customers as a strategic partner and preferred supplier. Standardised project methodologies lead to efficient, repeatable implementations locally or globally. We have developed seven business activities specifically designed to support the full lifecycle of automation and IT systems.
Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) connectivity is provided by ATS rather than ERP systems themselves. Using Commercially Off The Shelf (COTS) products ATS can create upgradeable, maintainable and configurable links from the MES and control layer to the information layer within an organisation's system architecture.
Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) & Enterprise Manufacturing Intelligence (EMI)
Implementing MES and EMI requires a thorough understanding of the business process and expertise in the technical solutions required to design, implement and support the system. An MES project needs to be viewed from a complete lifecycle perspective so that it can be easily maintained by the customer. The ATS methodology applies Commercially Off The Shelf product solutions leading to efficient, repeatable implementations. Many of our local and global customers must implement MES or EMI in existing plants with an existing information architecture. ATS's step by step collaborative approach ensures continuous improvement.
MES or EMI projects are designed to deliver the right information to the right people at the right time. ATS commits to collecting data once, verifying it once, storing the data and then presenting it as information. Using information for improved decision making delivers immediate return on investment.
Lean Manufacturing, Six Sigma, Overall Equipment Effectiveness and other techniques can be applied post implementation to deliver real financial benefit to your organisation. ATS's collaborative approach means that we deliver a technical solution for business benefit.
Our world-class customers in the Aerospace, Defence, Automotive, Chemicals, Consumer Goods, Electronics, Forest Products, Marine, Medical, Oil and Gas, Pharmaceutical, Pulp and Paper, Water and other industries are our best references. ATS MES/EMI implementations deliver some of the fastest payback periods of any IT project, and we can prove it.
Industrial and Process Control is a speciality of ATS. Control technologies include Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC's), Distributed Control Systems (DCS), Drives and Motion Control, embedded software, PC based real-time control, Computer Numerical Control (CNC), Distributed Numerical Control (DNC) and Coordinated Measuring Machine software (CMM). Our professional engineers possess an intimate knowledge of these technologies and can implement projects involving solutions from various suppliers.
The ATS independent Solution Provider Profile is important when implementing hardware and software products from diverse suppliers. Connectivity is of crucial importance and the implementation team is supported by our software development and MES teams with centres of excellence in Australia, Europe, North America and Africa.
