Plant-to-enterprise integration: Foundation for MES/MOM payback

Overview:

Manufacturers need Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) or Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) systems on an enterprise scale with enterprise integration.

Manufacturers must leave nothing to chance. Business processes must be reliable and based on accurate and timely information. Any gaps in data can allow errors in mission-critical processes, and result in quality, cost and delivery problems. These, in turn, can lead to loss of customer confidence and result in negative financial consequences.

Gaps in data have typically occurred within plant operations and at the interface between the factory and the enterprise. Manufacturers now realize that to fill the data gaps requires
  • Coherent, integrated information systems spanning the whole plant
  • Two-way information flows between production plants and the enterprise
In short, manufacturers need Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) or Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) systems on an enterprise scale with enterprise integration.
