MES BASICS

The safest approach is to define a Manufacturing Execution System (MES) as Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) that can be extended to include additional functionality to support the controlling, tracking, and documenting of the transformation of raw materials into finished goods in real-time.

Track & Trace

Tracking and tracing are the processes by which manufacturers obtain and record highly important information about where and how products are made. Our Track & Trace Module automates this process and has become a modern necessity for manufacturers as their industry faces increasing economic and regulatory challenges.
