Manufacturing Execution System (MES) means a computerized system that manages and controls the productive function in the company. MES 4.0 software creates links between the ERP and the machines and it governs and automates the entire production process. The main feature of MES 4.0 is in fact the ability to align production with business management, bridging the gap between planning and what is produced.
The MES in cloud proposed by GP Progetti offers the advantage of not requiring a dedicated infrastructure in the individual factories of a company that has, for example, more locations that need to be coordinated with each other.
What does a MES 4.0 software do?
The operations and functions performed by a MES 4.0 in cloud software are:
- Data collection
- Management, monitoring and control of production
- Traceability of product and machine status
- Detection and analysis of machine parameters
A Manufacturing Execution System aligns and coordinates business management with production, making each phase of the process more efficient considering the available resources, i.e. operators and machinery. The goal of this management is to optimize production for maximum efficiency. Furthermore, another indispensable requirement of MES 4.0 software is the ability to integrate with information systems already in use in the company, such as the ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning).
MES 4.0 software improves production management
A tool that collects useful data for defining a production strategy is needed to coordinate and optimize production.
How does production management improve with MES 4.0 software?
- Constant production control to reduce waste
- Stock management in real time
- Optimization of the exploitation of production resources
Supervising the production process means, for the company, always having costs and resources under control by relying on a single tool that puts machines, people and systems in communication.
