Ft. Lauderdale, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/31/2014 -- Managing a highly configurable product through the manufacturing process can be a daunting task, manufacturing execution systems (MES) with advanced configuration capabilities can help. Industrial journalist, Thomas R. Cutler, authored the feature article in the current issue of Automation & Controls Today. Cutler discussed how MES solutions can improve business results by showing the user where costs are incurred, resulting in better cost- control and cost-reduction.
According to Cutler, “Industry best practices require multiple checks during purchase order reconciliation. Ideally the MES will drive increased capacity and sales. A well-tailored MES will empower the workforce by delivering information that motivates staff to make informed decisions supported by metrics. Effective project- based MES systems are designed to collect data at the point of transaction, eliminating duplicate data entry, and making the information available in real time.”
Manufacturing execution systems provide a framework for enabling rapid change due to innovation, while simultaneously managing risk, ensuring product quality, enforcing the adoption of new processes and maximizing production yields. Real-time parametric process and product analytical data must be used for continuous improvement of both product and process design.
