Manufacturing Management Software Version 8

Dec. 7, 2021
Version 8 of Fastems' Manufacturing Management Software offers data-driven insights into manufacturing processes.

Version 8 of Fastems’ Manufacturing Management Software (MMS) boosts CNC automation intelligence to the next level by introducing an MMS Insights view, giving practical ideas and suggestions on how to improve CNC production.


The module provides CNC companies with numerous highlights and suggestions on how to improve their production processes based on data gathered from the automation system, including all the integrated machinery and data systems. MMS overviews the whole production and comes up with suggestions such as adding or removing certain tools or fixtures based on usage rates or updating NC-program runtimes for more precise order scheduling. It builds upon the functionality of the earlier MMS versions which offer users a full suite of options for automated production planning, including production resource preparation and indication of missing resources.


For manufacturers using the simple pallet automation, there is a single-screen user interface with drag-and-drop pallet ordering and a MMS EasyRoute function that allows the operator to bring entirely new workpieces into production in under one minute. In addition, for the manufacturers that do not produce purely based on customer orders, there is an Order Generator that automatically creates production orders based on rules defined by the user.
