Managing the Transformation of Materials into Finished Products in Real Time
Manufacturing execution systems (MES) ensure that all facets of the operation — materials, people, processes, and equipment — act in concert, securely, and in compliance with industry, customer, and product specifications.
Furthermore, they track the transformation of products from raw materials to finished goods, monitor production according to quality specifications, and gather information on resources and asset utilisation. This assures that operators, supervisors, managers, and other decision makers have timely information to effectively manage the order flow and take corrective actions to keep quality and performance under control.
Digitally transforming, integrating, and standardising information flows and processes across inventory, production, and quality operations helps to improve operational efficiency. It also enforces predictable quality and compliance, increases profitability, and provides a foundation for continuous improvement.
The integration of MES with ERP or other business applications has become mission critical for manufacturing plant operations. It enables agile, short-term production planning and flexible update schedules. It also improves supply chain visibility and decision support by updating business applications with production responses and KPIs in real time.
Delivering Manufacturing Execution Management
Manufacturing Execution System for Batch and Hybrid Processes - Unique execution and data collection capabilities on automated plant equipment make our integrated manufacturing execution solution for batch and hybrid processes the first choice for automated production lines or fast-moving goods manufacturing. Synchronise human and machine actions dynamically and manage human processes with our sophisticated workflow management capabilities. With reliable, real-time production information, managers, and operators are equipped to streamline order flow and track the transformation of products from raw materials through finished goods. They can now also evaluate yield, quality, and resource utilisation better.
Manufacturing Execution System for Continuous Processes - This offers specific functionality and support for deployment throughout mining, minerals, and metals operations. This extends from extraction, smelters, and furnaces to storage and transportation for end-to-end production accounting and inventory management in near real-time. It empowers effective operational decision making based on KPIs for maximising the utilisation of operating assets, and to manage energy in real time, at the point of use. Integration with ERP and planning systems enables value chain visibility and optimisation.
