Tuesday, April 29, 2014
Preactor International Ltd – A Siemens Company has released an updated version to its Preactor APS and GMPS software. Preactor is a leading provider of advanced production planning and scheduling software.

The Preactor 12.1 update features include:
  • Performance improvements with full 64-bit MS Windows system support.
  • Expanded import sources from CSV files to also include Excel files, SQL, ACCESS and ORACLE databases with an import script wizard.
  • Evaluate expression functionality improvements in performance and behaviour to provide an improved user experience.
Product Manager Barnaby Speller comments on the update features, “The new features included in Preactor 12.1 represent a significant step forward both in terms of performance and integration possibilities.  The move to a 64-bit architecture and improvements made to several key underlying functions in the software continue the trend of enabling Preactor to be used in larger and more complex scenarios as well as improving the day to day experience of existing users.  Alongside this the new multi-source import functionality promises gains in both speed and ease of integration with other business systems, resulting in faster and more flexible interfaces.”

Used by small, medium and large companies across all manufacturing sectors, Preactor’s breakthrough APS technology is recognized worldwide as an effective route to efficient production.  Recently Siemens extended its industry software portfolio in the MOM area by adding Preactor’s Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) software.

The flexibility of Preactor means that it can be implemented independently as required or integrated with most ERP or MES systems such as the Siemens MOM portfolio, to further increase and maximize productivity, savings and competitiveness.
