Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) replaces legacy and siloed manufacturing systems that haven’t kept pace with demanding and ever-changing requirements of manufacturing. Manufacturers are no longer hindered by islands of automation and disjointed systems; now they can innovate, adapt and succeed. Manufacturers choosing an MES system are up and running quickly, and are assured that the application can grow and adapt with their businesses.
A good Manufacturing Execution System (MES) is designed with the highest level of configurability and complete interoperability with other business systems. It provides instant intelligence; from test results and yields to statistical quality control that enable you to improve quality and productivity.
Every Industry is different. Like a general purpose ERP, you cannot have an MES that fits all
While an MES needs to have high configurability, flexibility, agility and scalability to easily adopt the dynamic changes happening in manufacturing organizations, based on your manufacturing industry, you will definitely have industry specific requirements. Talk to us to understand what industry specific functionality is needed in your manufacturing operations management ecosystem
MES for Medical devices, Semiconductors, Electronics, Pharma
Instead of manual records, 21CFR11 compliance, electronic batch records (eBR), electronic device history records (eDHR) are some of the critical manufacturing requirements expected from an MES System to make factories paperless and have electronic traceability real time. A batch record provides proof that an organization properly handles and records all critical steps to produce each batch of a product, whether entered electronically or manually. This record includes data associated with operators, the manufacturing process, equipment, materials, and supplies.
MES for Discrete Manufacturing
Discrete Manufacturers have unique requirements to go paperless using manufacturing execution systems (MES). Whether it is , Assemble-to-Order (ATO) or Configure-to-Order (CTO), Make-to-Stock (MTS), Make-to-Order (MTO) or Engineer-to-Order (ETO) manufacturers, everyone needs an MES to remove paper from the shopfloor. Just connecting your machines with a modern day SCADA or IIOT system only provides automation of performance management. An MES goes beyond IIOT to automate Order management, traceability, work flow validations, work instructions, Line OEE's, Maintenance management, quality management, and detailed scheduling are modules along with analytics that consitute an MES.
