A recipe defines settings and amounts to manufacture a specific product in a consistent manner. It is an essential part of the production process. Recipe software fits into the Manufacturing Execution System (MES) layer that resides between the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) layer and the plant floor. It provides an efficient means to manage and select recipes, track variances in recipe values, keep recipes secure, track recipe changes, analyze recipes, and generate recipe reports.
