The third level of the ISA-95 standard for manufacturing, the production/MES layer, allows you to monitor and control production systems at the factory floor level.
The ISA-95 standard divides enterprise integration into 4 levels. The third level of manufacturing execution is divided into production, maintenance, quality and inventory. One of the most important parts of manufacturing operations management, the Manufacturing Execution System (MES), collects data in real-time from machines, material and people optimizing the production process.
This results in increased productivity as work orders are completed more efficiently and there is less waste in material flow. With detail level control and shorter response time to changes, lead times in production become shorter. Production also becomes more cost-effective.
