Our in-house solution: jitCATS

jitCATS - production control

Developed as a flexible system, jitCATS (just-in-time Control And Tracking System) has attractive features that reduce investment, commissioning time, changeover effort and running costs. Any OEM or module supplier can use jitCATS as a manufacturing execution system (MES) for the entire process. It includes the continuous control of all operating equipment, quality control loops up to shipping with sequence control. 


The all-in-one solution for jit/jis module production facilities including pre-assembly:

  • jit call-off processing and job scheduling
  • jit production material and operating resources control
  • Control of pre-assembly
  • Quality management and performance analyses
  • Sequence and shipping control
  • Option: control of demand-driven material provision

From us to you in four steps: Typical project flow when introducing jitCATS production control

Concept phase

  • Document and describe required technologies
  • Work together to develop a technology matrix as the basis for further project steps

Software installation

  • Install jitCATS software on customer server
  • Load the associated application on the relevant clients
  • Set up the jitCATS PLC cell controller provided by Leadec

Line configuration

  • Joint configuration and setup of production line on the control station using the jitCATS configurator
  • Determine cycle times and machine control


  • Commissioning of the system and supervision of ramp-up until specified regular production level is reached
  • On request, further support and optimization of production

Result: a highly efficient and flexible production control system in the era of Industry 4.0.

Added value through jitCATS


  • The scalable process model and parameter setting of jitCATS reduce follow-on investments and maintenance costs; system adjustments can be done by the user.


  • Thanks to dynamic management of operating resources, the jitCATS configurator achieves time savings of up to 80% for retooling within the production line.


  • The jitCATS open licensing model allows it to be easily extended to other production lines.


  • The optional jitCATS cloud solution enables global networking and avoids high local investment costs for IT and infrastructure.


  • The open interfaces of jitCATS for common ERP systems (e.g. SAP) avoid multiple inputs and ensure consistency of information.


  • The closed control loops and the use of reliable software elements in jitCATS reduce quality costs and improve process reliability.


  • The pull principle underlying jitCATS minimizes the intermediate buffer and reduces the necessary inventory of intermediate products.


  • The simple, repeatedly proven installation and implementation of jitCATS creates time savings of up to 50% for commissioning and ramp-up.
