What is MES
Especially since the digital transition to industry 4.0, there is a need to increase transparency and flexibility in the production process.
A MES is used to schedule, control and monitor the entire value chain in production. According to VDI guideline 5600 it has the core functions detailed planning and fine control, resource management, material management, personnel management, data acquisition, performance analysis, quality and information management. The MES records operating data (quantities and times), machine, process, quality and logistics data. These are monitored in real time with regard to compliance with specifications and reported on demand. The information is used by production management, quality management, the technical department and all other departments as a basis for continuous improvement.
On the basis of reliable facts, potentials for increasing productivity shall be identified. Waste has to be eliminated. MES systems represent the elementary link between the commercially oriented ERP systems and production with all its subsystems. This is why modern MES systems are compared with a hub in a wheel with many spokes. All figures converge in the MES. They are processed and correlated there. The result is a homogeneous and consistent, coherent database in which everything fits together.
The resulting "huge" database is now known as Big Data and serves as the basis for modern analysis methods. For this reason, a Manufacturing Execution System is also understood today as the "enabler" of digital transformation, industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things.
