01 Sep What is a MES System?
In this post we tell you what is a MES system and how it helps you to improve the performance of your factory in the new era of Industry 4.0.
What is a MES System (Manufacturing Execution System)
The MES System (Manufacturing Execution System) is a software focused on Production Control, which helps to control, manage and optimise production, achieving maximum efficiency and cost reduction.
With the rise of Industry 4.0 and interconnectivity between systems, MESs are becoming increasingly important in today’s factory environment.
Their origin dates back to the 1960s and 1970s. They emerged in an attempt to computerise information, moving away from paper-based record keeping to modern-day systems that display real-time production information for better decision making.
A MES system can include functions such as scheduling, production order management, stock management, maintenance or quality, among others. Some authors, however, relate maintenance and stock management to OES (Operations Execution System).
Main functions of the edinn MES System
The edinn system works in any sector and constitutes a complete and advanced MES + OEE system.
The functions of edinn® M2 are:
- edinn OEE functionality.
- edinn MES functionality.
- Cost control and incentives.
- OCE Energy Efficiency.
- Prediction of Strops through Neural Networks.
- Control of wastage, rejects and scrap.
- Management and Control by Artificial Vision.
- Web reporting tool usable from PC, Tablets and Smartphones.
How can edinn help you?
All processes have losses, but information is power and having an MES system allows you to optimise them in real time.
In this sense, edinn pursues total efficiency based on the 4 types of losses that collect 100% of the possible losses of a process:
This formula allows a direct benefit to be obtained as increasing efficiency directly influences the economic balance. Moreover, it is feasible since the increase in productivity and efficiency occurs systematically.
This results in a cost reduction between 5% and 40% or the same % more productivity or a combination of both.
We encourage you to contact edinn for more information or help for your Digital Transformation, Industry 4.0, MES System and Work Management projects.
