iTAC launches new function for maintenance tasks in APS module

Maintenance and repair tasks easily transferred from the Maintenance Manager to the APS service

Montabaur, July 20, 2021 – iTAC Software AG, MES specialist, created a link between its maintenance tool and the planning module. This means that maintenance and servicing tasks can now be included in the planning process. It can always also be rescheduled in real time. This enhancement of the iTAC.APS.Service enables detailed planning, which leads to greater flexibility and cost optimization in production.

iTAC, a subsidiary of Dürr AG, develops MES and IIoT solutions for transparent, automated production processes. The portfolio also includes the Maintenance Manager. The digital maintenance assistant lists and defines all planned maintenance tasks in production. It is available for both desktop and mobile devices such as tablets. It can be used to process maintenance tasks in production and to define or plan them easily in the office.

iTAC has now linked the Maintenance Manager to the iTAC.APS.Service via an interface. This means that planning via APS (Advanced Planning and Scheduling) is not only possible taking into account material, personnel and production orders, but also including maintenance tasks. The new function allows maintenance orders planned in the Maintenance Manager to be immediately transferred to the iTAC.APS.Service. The option to plan in real time provides additional flexibility.

The maintenance orders are listed in the Maintenance Manager. This provides an overview of all pending tasks. Recurring maintenance tasks can be set with their individual maintenance interval, whether after a certain service performance of a machine or at regular intervals. The planning results are displayed in a graphical overview.

"By integrating the Maintenance Manager, we are expanding the planning options for users. You can take full advantage of machine capacities and make the best possible use of all resources," explains Peter Bollinger, CEO of iTAC Software AG.
