Plataine Receives SME 2021 Excellence in Composites Manufacturing Award

SME, the professional association committed to advancing manufacturing
professionals, academia and communities, awarded Plataine an 2021 Excellence
in Composites Manufacturing Award. The award, which is international in
scope, honors contributions of those who have excelled in manufacturing
products from advanced composite materials. That excellence can include
developing innovative tooling and/or manufacturing process techniques for
the manufacture of products that have helped accelerate composites’ growth
through superior service, quality or cost-reduction initiatives.

Plataine received the Award for its instrumental achievements during the
COVID-19 pandemic, helping its customers run their operations smoothly with
smaller, less experienced workforces, maximizing utilization of existing
resources and materials to increase product yield. In addition, Plataine’s
solutions helped reduce costs related to quality control, increase
visibility and improve remote production control. Finally, Plataine’s
scheduling application helped to deal efficiently with supply chain and
other disruptions.

Plataine offers Intelligent Automation and Optimization software solutions
for advanced manufacturing that enable optimization of key processes on the
production floor. The company’s solution consists of several modules
(Digital Assistants) that allow, among other things, to automatically
generate and track optimal production schedules,optimize raw material and
parts inventory, maintain full traceability and perform simulations for
various possible scenarios on the production floor. These capabilities allow
organizations that choose to work with the Plataine’s product to set and
meet new production standards, optimize current-day production, predict
long-term and mid-term processes, manage organizational investments, improve
productivity, and make smarter and more efficient business decisions in

Michael Packer, SME president, says “Aerospace and Defense manufacturing
sectors are coming back fast to support the accelerating growth in aircraft
production. The large OEMs announced their plans to support airline demand
and double the aircraft fleet over the next 20 years. Innovation must occur
to enable this growth with special focus on process automation and
improvement in materials, quality and throughput. Companies such as Plataine
have risen to the challenge and are applying industry 4.0 solutions to
support this immense task.”

“Plataine is honored with SME’s recognition and will continue to work with
SME to advance AI in manufacturing” says Avner Ben-Bassat, President & CEO
at Plataine. “This award further recognizes Plataine as the leading provider
of IIoT and AI-based optimization solutions for advanced manufacturing, and
we are proud to spearhead the process that turns production facilities into
smart digital factories.”
