Improve product quality while driving down costs, with SG Systems Manufacturing Execution System (MES) Software. Integrated with most ERP business processes, SG Systems creates the ideal conditions for high-quality and efficient manufacturing, increased reliability, and full production floor product traceability.
Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) are computerized systems (touch screens, scales, loadcells, bar-code scanners, probes, label printers etc) used in manufacturing. MES can provide the right information at the right time and show the manufacturing decision maker “how the current conditions on the plant floor can be optimized to improve production output. MES work in real time to enable the control of multiple elements of the production process (e.g. inputs, personnel, machines and support services).
MES might operate across multiple function areas, for example: management of product definitions across the product life-cycle, resource scheduling, order execution and shipping, production analysis for Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), and materials track and trace.
The idea of MES might be seen as an intermediate step between, on the one hand, an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system, and a Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) or process control system on the other; although historically, exact boundaries have fluctuated.
Now more than ever, manufacturing excellence depends on streamlining operations on the plant floor and throughout the supply chain. However, traditional Manufacturing Execution Systems tends to focus mainly on the plant floor, with minimal integration beyond the four walls.
Today, manufacturers must transform their operations by automating, executing and managing the performance of global business processes across their value chain. This means end-to-end integration of processes spanning supply chain, production, maintenance, distribution, quality and labor operations – regardless of where these facilities and operations are physically located.
SG Systems is manufacturing software that delivers MES capabilities, which when combined with other SG Systems production floor applications, offers a far more expanded solution than a traditional Manufacturing Execution System. By taking an enterprise approach, SG Systems applications work like an IT platform to reach across the various processes of manufacturing at each of your locations, which offers unified integration and collaboration with your product supply network.
Leveraging SG Systems as a global manufacturing execution system allows you to:
