The Value of Manufacturing Execution System

Boost Efficiency OEE

Experience operational excellence through precise tracking and real-time monitoring of vital metrics, including Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), downtime occurrences, waste levels, production counts, Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF), Mean Time to Repair (MTTR), and beyond. Our holistic methodology involves correlating each operational event with its underlying causes and conducting thorough analyses to uncover root issues.

Visibility with Dashboards

Dashboards and Scoreboards Summarize and analyze data by context. Correlate events and reasons to production parameters. Use standard & ad-hoc reports and dashboards for real-time decisions Our Manufacturing Intelligence solutions offer comprehensive visibility into the production process, providing detailed tracking and tracing capabilities for materials, products, and equipment, which can be crucial for regulatory compliance and effective supply chain management.

Reduce Waste

Drive efficiency and reduce waste by gaining clear visibility into data quality and staying informed about recall information. Integrate quality data seamlessly with process data to empower operators, enabling them to make informed adjustments to prevent waste events and minimize errors. Our solution ensures minimal rework and giveaway, optimizing your operations.

Improve Quality

MES improves product quality through real-time trends, statistics, and notifications. It integrates data from manual and automated sources, providing a single, centralized location for process, inspection, and test information. It also supports 21 CFR Part 11 compliance and allows for attaching operator comments, specifications, recipes, and procedure documents.

ERP Integration

Integrating ERP with the plant floor enhances ERP efficiency with real-time insights. MES to ERP connectivity benefits manufacturing companies of any size, while our survivability modules ensure uninterrupted production during cloud connectivity loss. Our real-time interfaces seamlessly connect with SAP, Microsoft, Oracle, and other leading platforms.

Unify Your Data

We believe in working with a data modeling structure to unify your business data. The ISA-95 framework is a good reference for modeling by, Site, Area, Line, Cell to Edge. Once in place this Unified Namespace structure provides a powerful way to access data, structured and unstructured.
