AMIA Systems today announced the release of SIMOGGA v.4.6: a software suite to optimize flows and monitor the production process.
AMIA Systems, a Université Libre de Bruxelles spin-off, pioneer in visualization, quantification and flow optimization for manufacturing industries announced a new version of SIMOGGA.
Targeting the different stakeholders in the production process, SIMOGGA simplifies and enriches the analysis of industrial optimization. The different actors can be involved in the elaboration of changes to be carried out, which facilitates their implementation.
Philippe VAN DAMME, co-founder of AMIA Systems and leader of the development team depicted some of the main new features: “We have spent a lot of time listening to our clients to improve the user experience. In SIMOGGA Layout Design, we especially paid attention to the visualization and automatic tools (e.g. automatic positioning, display of flows).”
“SIMOGGA Planner has evolved a lot and interaction with the actors of production process are now possible. The previous version of our planner allowed a predictive optimization mainly based on existing fabrication orders. In the new version, to match the real situation, modifications can be interactively carried out within the software so that real time optimizations of the production planning can be performed. Many features simplifying the management of resources and fabrication orders were added.”
Emmanuelle VIN, CEO of AMIA Systems, added: “We wanted this new version to reflect our collaboration with the manufacturing companies having trusted us since the very first release of our software. Thanks to the discussions with our customers, we could understand their needs and support them with the implementation of all their processes. Using this new version, we will help manufacturing companies to move towards Industry 4.0, by elaborating a realist transformation plan matching the ambition of these companies based on our expertise.”
What are the main advantages of this new version? Martine HOUYOUX, Sales Executive pointed out: “The European industry is radically changing but the first steps toward Industry 4.0 require heavy investments that cannot be often afforded by the vast network of SMEs, although these investments would strongly contribute to the competitiveness of the manufacturing industry. At AMIA Systems, we have decided to adapt our business model so that SMEs can benefit from effective tools: we have broadened our offer by providing “pay-per-use” usage and lite versions of our software to meet specific needs at reduced costs.”
The new version will be presented during a special event within the second trimester of 2017.
Besides, our team is working on a new product, SIMOGGA WMS , a tool to optimize the design and management of warehouses. A beta will be presented by the end of Summer 2017.
 WMS: Warehouse Management Systems
We added several visualizations based on clients needs. They allow to understand the scenarios, the simulations and communicate change impact and data to stakeholders.
We have added new functionalities such as the ability to manually modify production orders and asses the maximum critical date to be able to ship within due date.
