Manufacturing Execution Systems

Consult, Engineer, Execute!

Choosing the right MES software is a pivotal step in optimizing your return on investment. Numerous manufacturers encounter challenges in identifying their MES vision and lack a well-defined roadmap when selecting their MES provider. Such uncertainties can result in substantial capital investments with no conclusive decisions or, worse yet, misguided choices.

If you are unsure how to start your MES journey or whether you need support, ask yourself these questions.

  • What is the current state of collecting manufacturing data?
  • Are there any gaps in the automation of data?
  • Have you defined the future state of your MES and how it fits in your overall manufacturing data architecture?
  • Are there processes in need of optimization?
  • Where and when in the processes are quality inspections required and what is the process?

Our Approach:

  • Planning – Observe current state, define future state, and develop a roadmap.
  • Engineering – Develop a functional requirements specification for MES deployment.
  • Deployment – Support procurement, commissioning, and launch of the MES.

Business Process Optimization

Looking to transform the processes that run your company? Our team’s best practices and agnostic approach will help you see the big picture, clarify priorities, and understand dependencies that can assure maximum ROI from your team’s effort.

Process maps are the language of your business. They explain how value is created, reveal opportunities for improvement, and bring the potential of IT to life.  At almost every organization, there is a significant gap between the way management thinks processes are executed and what really happens on the front line. More significantly, exceptions, workarounds, and special customer needs cause process steps to be added over time. We collaborate with your team while facilitating the creation of a project-guiding system map. This map can illustrate a single key process or your entire enterprise.

Our approach supports your organization in making educated systems selections, and preparing for implementations by

  • Align manufacturing and supply chain processes with corporate strategic plan
  • Focus on LEAN principles
  • Leverage existing IT resources and applications – we build on what you have already invested in and augment where necessary
  • Defining requirements for software selection based on your specific needs
  • Advocate on your behalf with software integrator – implementations should be built around your needs, not you having to change to fit their generic software
