First Steps

With the materialManager, you can manage the materials in your workshop centrally in one application. Once registered, the corresponding data can be used in a variety of apps (e.g. intelliDivide cutting optimization, productionAssist Cutting assistant) and on machines (e.g. SAWTEQ panel dividing saws).

You can currently create and manage your panels and edge bands in the app materialManager.In the future, you will also be able to add other materials. In parallel, we are working on continuously connecting further applications and machines.

The materialManager is a web application. To open it, simply enter the URL https://materialManager.homag.cloud in your browser bar.

On the lefthand side you find a navigation area - there you can switch between the panel and edgeband types with a single click.

At the first login, the menu item Board is automatically selected. In the overview, the materialManager shows you the most important information (material or board code, thickness, length, width, grain, the cost per square meter and the category).

In the overview, a full text search for the boards is possible, as well as filtering by material and board code. As usual, the display of the list (columns, filters, sorting) can be customized.

Additional board types can be added individually using the "+ Add plate type" button and as a list using the "Edit" button.

The overview for edgebands is structured in a similar manner.

The default setting shows you the edge code, decor name, decor code, height, thickness, material and the edge banding process.

The columns "Total number" (number of edge band rolls) and "Total length" (remaining length of all edge band coils summarized) give you an overview of the inventory. 

When you open the application for the first time, no data is stored yet. Start by adding a material type.
