New Product: Camstar’s Enterprise Platform, Version 4.5 offers closed-loop quality process


Product Briefing Outline: Camstar Systems has released ‘Camstar Enterprise Platform’ Version 4.5 for general availability. Enhancements in version 4.5 – driven in collaboration with leading manufacturers using the Platform – include expanded enterprise-caliber capabilities for global enterprises with multiple manufacturing locations and outsourced operations. Version 4.5 augments the Platform’s configurability and usability to allow users to quickly adopt the solution with minimal training – even where complex manufacturing and quality processes span discrete, batch and hybrid operations.

Problem: Competition to deliver the lowest cost per watt requires continuous improvement and reliable quality and delivery from every plant and every line.  Solar manufacturers must grow globally while containing costs in order to compete.  Removing manufacturing variability to consistently produce highly efficient products is required as well as continuously improving design and manufacturing to increase yields and resource utilization.

Solution: The Camstar Enterprise Platform advances product quality throughout the product lifecycle, from design to planning to supply to manufacturing to customer product experience – all in a closed-loop learning process that allows future products to be designed better and manufacturing processes to be leaner and more efficient. Camstar reports that full traceability from finished product back to raw material enables easier root cause analysis across multiple batches and devices. Expanded enterprise-caliber capabilities have been included for global manufacturers with multiple locations or outsourced operations. The system now has the capability to support even the most complex manufacturing processes that span discrete, batch or hybrid operations.  Augmented Platform configurability and usability are included to allow users to quickly adopt the solution with minimal training – and realize benefits earlier.

Applications: Global manufacturers with multiple locations or outsourced operations.

Platform: Camstar Enterprise Platform Version 4.5

Availability: December 2009 onwards.
