Smart manufacturing starts from factory floor
The Manufacturing Execution System (MES) is the channel of information from the shop floor to the top floor in a manufacturing organization. An Enterprise Resource Planning system (ERP) is often not enough to understand what is actually happening in the factory.
MES is a platform that lets you see your operations in real-time and have more information on what has happened and when. It will not change your ways of working, run equipment faster, increase product quality or reduce waste on its own. What it does do, is help you understand what is concretely happening in the factory based on the information from the machinery and operations.
