MES provides integration between ERP and production control
The Manufacturing Execution System (MES) provides integration between your ERP and production control. This functional layer provides insight and overview of progress and deviations in your production. The MES ensures a more efficient implementation of your production orders and helps you to achieve an optimal deployment of people and resources. To achieve your operational excellence goals.
Financial benefits of MES
Following the introduction of an MES solution companies will generally report financial benefits such as:
- Typically over 70% reduction in quality issues
- Throughput generally increased by more than 20% (bottleneck elimination)
- Significant reduction in unsold stock
- “Profit Day” moves closer to the Fiscal Year start
Process benefits of MES
The typical process benefits reported by companies who have already implemented an MES solution include:
- Production visibility
- Sharing of best practice
- Reduced downtime
- Directed manufacturing
- Improved plan achievement
- Integrated manufacturing
- Reduced manufacturing costs
From data to insight
Whether it’s measurement of your Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) or tracking of orders through your process, providing visibility of your production operation or digitising work instructions and product genealogy you need an MES solution to support your continuous improvement and remain competitive in today’s challenging business environment.
The importance of collection data
Collecting data is the foundation for continuous improvement but manual data collection is subject to human error and consumes valuable resource. By automating the data collection process it can be integrated into the production operation allowing actions to be taken, either automatically or manually, to improve and optimise the process.
The measurement paradigm
Essentially by collecting data we are able to measure processes and thus confirm that changes to the process have indeed resulted in business benefit, be that improved quality, reduced downtime, increased production or visibility of orders.
- We don’t know what we don’t know
- We can’t act on what we don’t know
- We won’t know until we search
- We won’t search for what we don’t question
- We don’t question what we don’t measure
- We can’t improve what we don’t measure
Planning & Scheduling
Scheduling helps you to make the right decision
Are you still working with a planning board? Then you might know that this tool does not take into limited production capacity, the availability of people with specific skills and abilities, or order constraints of machines. Advanced Planning and Scheduling does. It provides a feasible plan based on actual data to the production management of your company.
