The term eManufacturing has emerged since early 2000 and is now a very commonly heard term. The term is defined as:
“A responsive manufacturing model that optimizes the use of production assets based on information exchange from shop floor operations, across the enterprise and the extended supply chain.”
From Software Toolbox’s perspective, a key part of any eManufacturing strategy must be connecting to shop floor control and information systems. Software Toolbox clients know that we are a leader in connectivity software for the myriad of shop floor devices, each using their own means of communications.
