    Manufacturing Execution System - From planning
    to perfection of your production

    Seamless management and optimisation of your manufacturing processes

    Our MES system helps you to achieve your goals and remain competitive.

    MES, short for Manufacturing Execution System, is a software solution used in the manufacturing industry to plan, monitor and control production. This solution optimises the production process, increases efficiency, improves quality and ensures the traceability of products. By providing real-time information on production status, MES supports operational decision-making.

    Overall, MES helps companies optimise their manufacturing processes by providing them with the tools and insights they need to continuously monitor, control and improve processes. By implementing an MES, companies can increase their productivity, reduce costs and strengthen their competitiveness in the market.

    The main functions of an MES

    Production planning and control

    The MES supports the creation of production plans, the scheduling of orders and the allocation of resources.

    Order and process tracking

    It captures and tracks data in real time to monitor the progress of orders and processes.

    Material management

    The MES manages the flow of materials within manufacturing, including inventory tracking and management.

    Quality management

    It supports the collection, monitoring and evaluation of quality data during the manufacturing process.

    Traceability and compliance

    An MES enables the traceability of products and components throughout the supply chain and supports compliance with industry standards and legal regulations.

    Performance analysis and optimisation

    By analysing production data, an MES provides insights into the performance of manufacturing equipment and helps to identify potential for improvement.

    Your benefits at a glance - MES

    faster time to market
    Real-time monitoring

    An MES enables real-time monitoring of production processes. This means that operators have immediate access to key performance indicators such as machine utilisation, production speed and material consumption. This real-time data allows operators to react quickly to bottlenecks or inefficient processes and optimise them accordingly.

    Order Control
    Order management and optimisation

    An MES supports the efficient management of orders. It optimises the sequence of work orders, minimises idle times between orders and maximises the utilisation of production facilities. This increases overall productivity and shortens throughput times.

    Material Management
    Material management

    An MES manages the material flow in production by monitoring stock levels, forecasting material requirements and coordinating deliveries. Effective material planning and management avoids bottlenecks and ensures the availability of materials, which in turn increases production efficiency.

    Quality control and error prevention

    An MES enables continuous monitoring of product quality throughout the entire production process. It records and analyses quality data in real time and identifies potential quality problems at an early stage. As a result, corrective measures can be initiated in good time and rejects reduced.

    Performance analysis and continuous improvement

    An MES offers comprehensive analysis tools that operators can use to evaluate the performance of their production facilities and identify weak points. Based on these analyses, continuous improvement measures can be implemented to further increase efficiency, productivity and quality.

    FAQs MES

    What is an MES?

    MES stands for Manufacturing Execution System. It is a software solution used in the manufacturing industry to support the execution and monitoring of manufacturing processes in real time. An MES serves as a link between the corporate planning level (Enterprise Resource Planning, ERP) and the automation level, i.e. the machines and systems in production.

    What options does the MES offer for planning, scheduling and tracking production orders?

    The MES offers comprehensive functions for planning, scheduling and tracking production orders to ensure efficient production processing.

    How does the MES support material management and traceability along the supply chain?

    The material management functions of the MES ensure traceability along the supply chain by recording and managing material flows and batch information.

    What analysis and reporting functions are included in the MES and how are they used to optimise performance?

    Analysis and reporting functions in MES enable companies to analyse production data, monitor key performance indicators and identify potential for improvement.
