MES solutions deliver new opportunities for manufacturing enterprises
Over 30 years ago, innovative manufacturing enterprises began to bring transparency to manufacture by introducing systems for plant data collection (PDC). Likewise machine data collection (MDC) has a long tradition. In the mid-90s, the development of control panels for detailed planning set new benchmarks for IT solutions in the field of production control. The term Manufacturing Execution System evolved as a generic term for such systems. In the IT structure, MES solutions reside between the ERP and the machine level. With its Guideline 5600, VDI provides guidance on MES and proclaims that approaches for real-time, fast and flexible production management are an economic necessity.
