Honeywell POMS, a business of Honeywell Hi-Spec Solutions, has signed an OEM partnership agreement with Taylor Manufacturing Systems, a supplier of production scheduling software.
The agreement allows Honeywell POMS to offer the Taylor Scheduler, the core engine of the Taylor Enterprise Scheduling System (TESS), as part of the POMS MES and POMS CMS solution suites.
The Taylor Scheduler brings a scheduling engine, graphical Gantt chart, multi-plant capabilities, and real-time drag-and-drop scheduling to the POMS suite. Built-in ‘what-if’ capabilities and production performance versus plan measurements allow users to evaluate manufacturing options and report on plant performance to schedule.
Integration of the Taylor Scheduler with POMS MES and CMS will allow schedule changes to be communicated in real time to the plant floor, and will provide the scheduler with instant visibility to order and resource status.
Schedule decisions can be made with the confidence that a realistic and optimal solution has been chosen. POMS MES and CMS then ensure that the schedule is executed promptly and precisely, and that all activities maintain compliance with regulatory requirements.
