In die and mold manufacturing, the dies offered for the series production of sheet-metal and plastic parts are typically produced under extreme time pressure. Especially with increasing part complexity, bottlenecks and large order volumes, the manual planning effort assumes enormous proportions. To achieve high planning accuracy, production managers must have systematic support to keep an eye on all interfaces and dependencies.
It’s necessary to coordinate all the specialists, machines and suppliers involved in the manufacturing process and to manage material inventories and orders. Only if all the gears mesh perfectly can companies meet their cost, quality and deadline requirements.
ProLeiS MES, the software platform for mastering this process, individually supports each participant in planning, control and implementation. Employees are freed up and productivity increases.
ProLeiS MES establishes an overview and clear structure. Just like in a planning sketch, an optimally structured process organization is created step by step. With ProLeiS, you can see all the information on the status and progress of a project and on each part being manufactured at any time.
The MES software automatically coordinates complex factors like deadlines and resources. Processes are stored in ProLeiS as templates containing all your manufacturing knowledge.
You can use project milestones in your project to define fixed deadlines and import the bill of materials. ProLeiS categorizes the individual parts in an assembly so that manufacturing can be planned automatically. With resource assignment in ProLeiS, you can optimally utilize all resources at the click of a button while simultaneously meeting all milestones.
Significantly higher productivity is guaranteed to ensure a fast amortization of investments. ProLeiS more than meets these needs: With ProLeiS, we substantially increase our throughput thanks to optimized manufacturing planning and smooth data management.
Production managers use the progress indicators in ProLeiS to accurately control processing of individual manufacturing orders. They can then take quick and appropriate action in the event of unforeseen events. Planning changes can be made by drag & drop in the Gantt chart; ProLeiS automatically adjusts the subsequent activities.
Once the ideal production process is planned in ProLeiS, the employees know all tasks and deadlines. ProLeiS automatically displays the next tasks to be processed in the personal planning view for each employee based on the stored role assignment. This establishes transparency, frees up individual employees and accelerates routine tasks.
Automatic capacity assignment gives you valuable support. You can plan short-term changes and simulate various possibilities coordinated with current ongoing manufacturing. Then you can activate the best variant with a mouse click and ProLeiS automatically updates the affected dependencies. Especially in single-part manufacturing, this is a crucial advantage to enable fast responses in daily business. Employee and machine assignment can be instantly changed.
You have all the important manufacturing information clearly displayed on your ProLeiS dashboard – and on mobile devices if desired. You always have your orders and lead times under control and in all locations. Because ProLeiS is a learning system, you will be better positioned for each new order.
Supports planning of employees and machines.
Optimal scheduling of all planned activities and the best possible utilization of all resources is calculated across all projects and resources.

Data for procurement processes can be integrated In ProLeiS – via an ERP system, if available. The bill of materials provides the manufacturing planner with information on required manufactured and purchased parts. The planner can initiate orders and transmit them to the ERP system. Order and delivery status are also integrated. This can be synchronized with the manufacturing process so that the first manufacturing step is automatically released after material receipt.
