Siemens Opcenter (formerly known as Manufacturing Operations Center) is a holistic Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) solution that enables you to implement your strategy for the complete digitalization of manufacturing operations.


Siemens Opcenter provides end-to-end visibility into production, allowing decision makers to readily identify areas to be improved within both the product design and associated manufacturing processes, and make the necessary operational adjustments for smoother and more efficient production.

Siemens Opcenter's technologies and architecture adapt to the specific requirements of different industrial processes. It provides comprehensive MOM applications with a rich ecosystem of industry-specific functionalities developed from deep expertise in manufacturing. The highly scalable platform delivers multiple capabilities and enables customers to combine production efficiency with quality and visibility to reduce time to production.

Siemens Opcenter provides solutions for

Manufacturing Intelligence and Performance

Research, Development and Laboratory


Digitalization is changing everything, and manufacturers must react quickly and intelligently to unexpected changes, while being able to respond to shorter lead times and satisfy customer demands.


These challenges are faced not only by large enterprises, but also small and medium businesses. Preactor APS products have been specifically developed to meet this need, using advanced algorithms that balance demand and capacity to generate achievable production schedules.

Preactor APS products can be used for long-term strategic planning covering months and years, medium-term tactical planning with a few weeks planning horizon and for detailed sequencing and scheduling.

Preactor APS can be installed out of the box, and can be customized and configured where necessary. It can be used standalone to manage planning and scheduling, and is also designed for integration with other software such as ERP, MES, Data collection, Forecasting, Demand Planning and OEE applications.

Advanced Planning

Advanced Planning software is a strategic decision tool designed to aid you in long and mid-term planning. It considers forecast and long-term orders, supports decision making about feasibility and affects the general direction of productions

Advanced planning software supports major production capacity decisions surrounding extending the work force, resource capacity, and factories. It helps you determine what and how much to make, where and when to make it, and exactly what materials and resources are required.

Planning can be executed in finite or infinite capacity mode and planning time periods can be days, weeks, months, or a combination of all three. If used together with our advanced scheduling system, detailed production schedule information can be sent back to the planning system to override planned volume with scheduled volume. Master Production Schedule (MPS) can then be re-calculated using production schedule as the base for new results.


Advanced Scheduling

Advanced Scheduling software is an interactive, multi-constraint scheduling system. Availability of resources and additional constraints, such as tooling and materials, are all taken into consideration during scheduling to ensure an accurate model of your environment. Orders can be scheduled quickly using intelligent built-in rules, and the planner also has the ability to manually interact with the schedule to make changes based on their experience or new information.

Advanced Scheduling provides decision-making support for overtime, order prioritization, split production batches, due date negotiation and order processing.



SIMATIC IT R&D Suite allows companies in CPG and process industries to capitalize on their R&D potential and develop new products faster.

SIMATIC IT R&D Suite offers a scalable and flexible platform to streamline, optimize, and align all product development processes with manufacturing. It keeps the product designs and processes well in-line with quality and regulatory requirements. The smooth integration and alignment of R&D and manufacturing data and processes drastically speeds up the transfer of final product designs to mainstream manufacturing.

Typical R&D activities such as project data management, formula and packaging development, trial and experiment management, and production process design require an integrated set of best-in-class components ranging from electronic notebooks to laboratory management over-specification management to batch and inventory management, pilot plant manufacturing and the like. Key functionalities like regulatory compliance and support for the Intellectual Property process are an integral part of SIMATIC IT R&D suite.
