These suites come in the form of extensions to ERP platforms, as well as part of comprehensive MOM software and manufacturing execution system (MES) platforms. Even with this evolution, the names and acronyms describing each application still exist, which can make staring at a page of today’s MOM applications feel a little like getting lost in a bowl of alphabet soup!
