To make business processes as flexible as possible, allowing you to anticipate (market) changes, a quick data exchange between business software and the shop floor is a must. A Manufacturing Execution System (MES) takes care of this, but offers few tools to also boost productivity rates. MyPlantFloor offers you the best of both worlds: a productivity-boosting software package with an integrated Manufacturing Execution System.
Management of production processes
The Manufacturing Execution System (MES) allows for information exchanges between the administration and production departments, and monitors and manages production processes. Not every software solution that manages or registers production processes can be labelled a ‘Manufacturing Execution System’, as they often only offer partial solutions. MES has different functionalities: it can calculate production gains based on production data, monitor the entire production process, including primary cost calculations, planning and control of production orders, monitoring of batch productions etc. Moreover, it can improve processing times and guarantee more reliable delivery times, lower stock and order processing costs and give the administrator an insight into KPIs, based on which he can take well-founded decisions. In a nutshell, MES is both a real-time system and a data archive.
Advantages of the Manufacturing Execution System (MES)
- Better processing times.
- Optimised planning based on the actual situation and real-time information.
- More reliable delivery times.
- Increased machine load.
- Reduced energy usage.
- Automatic processing of production data.
- Reduction in the number of errors thanks to electronic, automated links.
Better insights thanks to MES software
Combined with OEE, the implementation of MES software gives manufacturing companies better insights into their production processes, which, in turn, allow for better planning, reduced losses and improved reporting. MyPlantFloor offers you real-time access to the status of your machinery. This software solution combines OEE with MES functions and can be used in virtually any industrial environment. It provides structured, automated data 24/7, which can immediately be used for calculations and can be easily viewed.
Keen to find out more?
The implementation of a Manufacturing Execution System (MES) or Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) software package requires knowledge of industrial automation, ICT, engineering and production processes. Agilitec bv has concentrated all its know-how in these fields into one product: MyPlantFloor. This software package can also be extended with extra modules .
