Introduction

Achieving high-standard manufacturing productivity is a daily, and long-term challenge for many organizations, in a context where multiple factors contribute to and influence the definition of what high-standard means.

Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) allow manufacturers to radically increase their chances for success and identify and act upon their unique problems, whether those relate to machines, the workers operating them, or both.

The Challenge - Achieving Standardized Work

Out of all the factors contributing to efficiency, one of the most important to address is workers, a critical component of overall efficiency on the plant floor.

Every worker taking part in the process affects its efficiency with their specific knowledge, skills, and speed. Without a standardized process, workers try to solve issues using their best judgment, as scary as that sounds. On the contrary, a standardized process allows workers to identify problems and define the right way to solve them quickly, with no guesswork, missteps, or delays.



THE SOLUTION – Real-Time Visibility with an MES that allows the manufacturing process to perfect itself

The solution comes along with an MES that focuses on two primary factors that influence workers’ efficiency: speed and accuracy. An MES solution provides manufacturers with a framework that allows their own standardize processes to be enforced across the organization, while supplying scrutinizing information about the process itself, in a virtuous spiral of efficiency optimization.


Real-time Visibility for workers allows them to:
  • Determine If the right materials/parts are ready where and when they need to be.
  • See If workers are “plugged in” and available to perform their tasks.

Real time Visibility for Management allows them to:
  • Witness issues emerging or trending.
  • Obtain insight on steps of the process that have room for improvement.
  • Analyze critical information, such as downtime, quality, and performance.
  • Identify vital resources that workers require to quickly and accurately react when an issue arises.
  • Recognize the benchmarks of machines, production lines, and production runs, providing guidelines for future improvements.
  • Eye-witnessing accurate production costs of each step of the process.
