Demystifying MES

Demystifying MES: Understanding Manufacturing Execution Systems

MES plays a crucial role in modern manufacturing, acting as the bridge between planning and execution on the factory floor. Because MES spans across many departments and countless work processes, its definition may vary depending on who you talk to. But what is MES, really? How can MES support standardized workflows, proactively detect efficiency and quality issues, and foster continuous improvement overall? Join Sepasoft and Inductive Automation as we demystify MES, explore real-world applications, and discuss emerging trends in the industry.

ICCX Exhibitor Demonstration

2022 ICCX Virtual Exhibitor Showcase | Exploring the Boundaries of MES

MES interacts with HMI, SCADA, and many other systems in its quest to control, track, and document the transformation of raw goods into finished goods. As a result, it’s not always clear where MES begins and ends. In this session, we’ll explore where MES takes over from ERP and PLM business systems to handle the real-time details on the plant floor. Using the Sepasoft modules, we will demonstrate typical manufacturing tasks using a low-code approach and common interface points with other systems.

Webinar | Unlocking Greater Efficiency: The Why and How of OEE Implementation

Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) is a metric that has helped many industrial organizations achieve real manufacturing gains and significantly increase profits. OEE has been proven to work but that doesn’t mean that simply calculating your organization’s OEE number or installing OEE software will cause the results you want to materialize. Ultimately it’s not just OEE data that makes a difference — it’s what you do with it.
