Coordinate and Synchronize People, Processes, Equipment, Tooling and Materials on a Global Scale with an Enterprise Manufacturing Execution System
Manufacturing Execution System (MES) are IT enabled systems that provide solutions for improving and optimizing the manufacturing process to the production floor engineers and managers. MES provides solution as to how the current conditions of the shop floor be altered to generate greater output at minimal cost. MES provides for the middle layer between the ERP system and the process control system.
How an enterprise leverages technology to manage and optimize the processes occurring at the shop floor level is critical to reap the full benefits and value offered by the Industry 4.0 concept. Digital Manufacturing requires a well-defined methodology for managing manufacturing operations and data coming off the plant floor. With the cost of raw materials on the rise, a highly competitive global market and increasing regulatory compliance concerns, companies that want to succeed need to cut waste, increase quality and monitor production processes while still increasing throughput. Together, a comprehensive Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) strategy and toolkit can enable all the above. Continuing along our Digital Thread for Industry 4.0, Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) finally take us out of the virtual world of manufacturing design and onto the factory floor. Our product has been designed, validated with the Digital Twin, and manufacturing planning has defined the optimal way for it to be produced in the plant. Now, it is time to execute production.

Benefits of Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES)
- Manufacturing execution solution that provides management the visibility into live production information.
- Manufacturing provides real-time execution information to plant personnel for managing critical manufacturing variables such as yield, throughput, order status, and machine status.
- Manufacturing makes this live production information available, allowing it to be freely shared among manufacturing, enterprise planning and logistics, product management, partners, and customers.
- Manufacturing has the ability to record and compile information relating to the Resources themselves. This information includes availability, data collection, and setup instructions.
- This level of data provides a basis for determining utilization and equipment efficiencies.
- The term Maintenance refers to adjustments, calibrations, change of parts/ consumables, repairs, preventive maintenance, and similar activities carried out on designated resources/machines/ equipment’s.
