What is a Manufacturing Execution System?

Most modern plants use a Manufacturing Execution System (MES) to manage and monitor work in progress on the factory floor. MES solutions involve system control systems that rely on up-to-date info to provide a snapshot of the current state of products being manufactured. In regulated industries, it is also the repository for critical lot and process data.

How It Works

An MES needs to be fed information from the plant floor pertaining to the current state of the product lots as they move through the process. In modern automated plants, this info normally resides within the manufacturing equipment itself. The aim is to automatically bridge the existing gap between a plant MES and automated systems.
