Quality Operations Management
Knowing your products have been made to the correct quality specifications before they are shipped is of critical importance.
A MES monitors product and process characteristics in real-time, notifying plant personnel as soon as deviations are detected. Using its Product Genealogy capabilities, the MES can rapidly determine the scope of the quality deviation, and quarantine production to ensure none of the suspect product is shipped. In addition to its real-time capabilities, the MES captures historical quality information, providing detailed information to support on-going quality improvement initiatives.
