MES/Operations – Features

Manage and monitor industrial operations in real time. Gain deep visibility into all manufacturing and production information. Optimize product runs and work schedules to reduce your production costs.

Get operations in hand

Improve productivity through faster inventory turns, reduced production lead times and swifter new product introductions – for faster return on investment and enhanced customer satisfaction.


Achieve increased manufacturing supply chain efficiency and business agility through reliable and optimized information flow between shop floor operations and business operations. Automatic downloading and execution of the production schedule as well as finished production and scrap are recorded against each order, shift and plant equipment, and can be made available to everybody in the organization.


Manage local dispatching of production work orders to lines and machines according to available capacity. Shop floor operators have instant visibility of any schedule changes and can execute production orders according to a timely plan and order. Manage master data for manufacturing operations such as processes, recipes, bills-of-material and quality specifications. Reduce lead times by delivering appropriate process information (work instructions, process and equipment setup specifications) to operators and automated equipment.


Increase real-time visibility of work orders and priorities for optimal execution. Improve predictability of order fulfillment by accurately monitoring ‘planned vs. actual’ production dates and production quantities. Improve inventory velocity through increased visibility into actual material consumptions and inventory movements in real time. Reduce variance in production results by controlling and monitoring operational activities through standardized production methods, procedures and specifications.


Generate electronic records of operational execution, including detailed information necessary to document finished products production, including product genealogy, traceability of materials, production sign-offs, and labor certifications to provide compliance and governance to internal or external regulatory bodies.


Identify best practices and unify operational processes across multiple plants; standardize ERP integration and shop floor integration with the adaptability to local needs, using a scalable, flexible manufacturing IT platform.
