Manufacturing IT Solutions (MITS) is a highly flexible MES manufacturing execution system used in manufacturing and process facilities to track and document the transformation of raw materials to finished goods.
Visible plant floor data in real time. Design Systems is uniquely qualified to deliver the best manufacturing execution systems on the market with over 40 years of manufacturing experience.
A manufacturing execution system performs a number of valuable activities as its scope has been further refined over the years by international models and standards. Examples include the following:
The advances in data exchange, cloud computing, and automation to foster “smart factories” has been referred to as the fourth industrial revolution, or as it is sometimes styled Industry 4.0. A smart factory works toward greater efficiency through the collection and analysis of time-series data via the process of manufacturing analytics.
The analysis helps manufacturing decision-makers improve production output by optimizing current conditions on the plant or factory floor.
In the 1990s, when Industry 4.0 systems were being developed, there was an overlap in functionality between different systems. Some structure was needed to correct this overlap, so the Manufacturing Enterprise Solution Association set the scope of MES in terms of 11 defined functions, which include the following:
These functions place MES at level 3 within a functional hierarchy between Level 0, 1, and 2 process control and Level 4 enterprise resource planning.
We are excited to announce our new partnership with Applied Computer Services and a developed integration with their Timer Pro QMS software. With this powerful collaboration, we will leverage Timer Pro’s industry-leading time management software to optimize your manufacturing operations, improve efficiency, and boost productivity.
Even for an item as simple as a prop tool for a door, Design Systems, Inc. Engineers are still thinking outside of the box.
Our Engineers may still use simple sketches for a design, but ultimately your company will have a professionally finished product that will meet your facilities expectations.
