(http://www.exentago.com), the innovator in next-generation information technology solutions for the sewn products industries, will feature the latest advancements in Shop Floor Control (SFC), Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), and ERP at the upcoming Texprocess Americas trade show.

We look forward to another great show and invite all attendees to visit both of our booths to learn about these exciting new productive and fun-to-use business solutions.”

In TPA Booth #809, Exenta Shopfloor will release a Production Capacity Planning add-on that will integrate ERP with powerful real-time shop floor analytics to intelligently allocate production work orders across available production options. The new solution will consider order delivery dates, available raw materials, production capacities, and workforce skill levels to optimize productivity and ensure on-time deliveries. Currently in beta release, the system also updates stakeholders with actual material usage, work-in-process status, and shipment dates in real-time.

Exenta Shopfloor will unveil a newly developed Amazon Alexa Skill that integrates the popular voice assistant to enable shop floor control users to receive status information on production operations, such as the number of people clocked-in, current efficiency, and other production details. They can also instruct Alexa to approve specific tasks such as off-standard status requests.

Exenta Shopfloor is also co-locating with Methods Workshop (http://www.methodsworkshop.com) at the show to demonstrate the power of integrating the industry-leading Engineered TruCost™ (ETC) methods engineering and incentive piece rate development software with its SFC solution.
