Why use an MES?

A Manufacturing Execution System (MES) is a software tool for controlling and monitoring the production process. It closes the gap between ERP and production. Often, different IT systems are used for individual tasks within production – for this the term "shopfloor IT" has been established in recent years.

According to different surveys, there are the following reasons (objectives) for implementing an MES:

  • Reduction of throughput times
  • Creation of "transparency"
  • Improvement in productivity
  • Product traceability
  • Increasing the adherence to delivery dates
