The MES D.A.CH. Verband was founded in 2010 and now has more than 60 members who are intensively involved with MES. The association’s activities include trade fairs, various events (workshops, lecture series, etc.) and a checklist tool that simplifies vendor evaluation. Industrie Informatik provides information, e.g., at the community workshop "MES in practice" in the realm of the automation meeting, concerning production optimization with the MES software cronetwork.
The name stems from Germany (D), Austria (A) and Switzerland (CH) and collectively "Dachverband" means umbrella organization.
In 2017 Industrie Informatik joined the OPC Foundation, whose goal is to establish an industrial interoperability standard for horizontal and vertical integration from the sensor up to the IT enterprise level.
