Scalability

Easily adapt to organizational growth with a unified MES solution that supports change over time. Sepasoft MES expands from the edge-of-network up to a global enterprise with no rework or loss of data.

FeatureBenefitEdgeLiteStandardEnterprise
Integrates with Enterprise ArchitectureAny version of OEE can be included in a seamless enterprise architecture allowing complete synchronization of production data and total visibility of the organization as a whole.n/a
MES Server Health MonitoringDetect and resolve system issues before they cause loss of production with out-of-the-box health monitoring tools.
Unlimited Lines per Site LicensingRoll out an MES implementation across your entire site without significant licensing costs or hidden fees. Unlike alternatives, a Sepasoft site license includes unlimited lines and machines.
No-Nonsense LicensingAs your organization grows, scale your MES system without having to purchase more capacity. Users, screens, reports, and field device connections are unlimited within a site license
IIoT/MQTT FunctionalityPrevent the loss of historical data, optimize network bandwidth, and improve security by capitalizing on IIoT, with built-in MQTT and OPC/UA support.
Multiple Site Production Data SynchronizationImprove visibility and reliability throughout the enterprise by easily sharing schedules, production results, and more across multiple sites and servers. With out-of-the-box functionality, integration labor and custom coding are significantly reduced.
Multiple Site Configuration SynchronizationSimplify the configuration process with automatic synchronization across multiple sites and servers. Minimize duplicate entry, misconfigurations, and other entry mistakes without custom coding.
High Configurability

Customize system configuration to meet the unique requirements of your organization.

FeatureBenefitEdgeLiteStandardEnterprise
Automatic, Manual, or Hybrid Data CollectionReduce operator workload with automatic data collection, with the option to collect valuable details manually. With the flexibility to collect data automatically, manually, or through a hybrid process, all relevant OEE information is captured.
Configurable Equipment ModesTrack asset utilization by configuring user-defined equipment modes that are most meaningful to your manufacturing process. User-definable modes can be anything but typically include changeover, set up, R&D, production, maintenance, and idle.
Equipment Manager ComponentEasily configure your equipment hierarchy in an intuitive representation of your plant floor. Define state, mode, and other settings unique by site, area, line, machine, and more.
Detailed ChangelogAll changes made to any MES configuration are automatically recorded to help you meet the challenges of regulatory compliance. Quickly zero in on significant changes with access to a complete audit trail evidencing the location, date, type of change, responsible person, and more.
Data Export/Import CapabilityEnjoy the freedom to use production data however you choose. Optionally, export and import data with external systems for further analysis or configuration.
Material ManagementKeep your key performance indicators (KPIs) accurate by configuring unique rates and settings for each material-equipment combination.
Multi-Database Vendor SupportSimplify implementation by selecting the database vendor that best fits into your existing IT standards.
Artifact ManagementEnsure the correct versions of materials safety data sheets (MSDS), work instructions, travelers, and more are available when needed. Attach additional data files (e.g. images, PDFs, etc.) to schedules, work orders, materials, equipment, and more.
Production Control

Achieve production goals by tracking progress and monitoring production conditions using live visual feedback.

FeatureBenefitEdgeLiteStandardEnterprise
Running ChangeoverAccurately track production counts and other key data when running multiple products on a line. Built-in OEE algorithms support running changeovers with two or more products running on a line simultaneously.
Flexible Shift ConfigurationAccurately predict production outcomes that match your shift schedules with flexible shift configuration, including rotating shifts and holidays.
Live Plant Floor SchedulingDetermine whether you’re on track to meet production targets in any given moment. Plant floor scheduling is automatically updated and forecasted based on live production conditions, providing you constant feedback on the status of operations.
Work Order ManagementFulfill production targets by tracking the real-time status of work orders, including units scheduled, produced, and remaining. Work orders spanning multiple runs or lines can be viewed in aggregate, providing the ability to review the work order as a whole.
Scheduling AnalysisAnalyze past production runs to identify trends and carry forward successful practices to future operations and scheduling.
Extensibility

Transition from isolated systems and data silos to a coordinated, full-featured MES. With Sepasoft’s modular design, business systems of different functional areas can work together in harmony for greater insight.
