May Topic:
Manufacturing Execution Systems

Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) automate the information loop between the shop floor and enterprise information systems. An MES makes up-to-the minute shop floor information available companywide, which allows a swift response to conditions and requirements. MES is the ideal application to collect data needed by any other system in the organization, providing a real-time database for traceability as well as information for continuous improvement in operations. Because these automation systems can be so critical to long-term improvements, manufacturers often have a long-term vision yet want to start with small “prove-out” projects. This presentation will cover key steps in developing and implementing MES plans and projects, short-term and long-term.
