Manufacturing Execution System (MES)
Get control of your shop floor execution with end-to-end inventory traceability, closed-loop quality and a real-time production ecosystem.
Plex Manufacturing Execution System (MES)
Features & Benefits
Legacy ERP systems are not well suited for manufacturing execution systems (MES) and essentially get the shop floor information post-production – after the fact – which does not provide much opportunity to control the output. The Plex Manufacturing Execution System (MES) picks up where most ERP systems leave off to deliver a unique synergy of real-time production management for up-to-the-minute manufacturing data that enables end-to-end visibility of inventory and is intertwined with quality for closed-loop control. By integrating Plex MES with your existing ERP, you gain operational insight to drive your production facilities rather than after-the-fact operational intelligence.
Deploy a cloud-based MES solution into your enterprise ecosystem, to deliver cost effective bi-directional connectivity and control.
Respond more quickly to changes with a common, intuitive control panel that captures real-time production and waste data – at the manufacturing moment.
Wirelessly communicate with plant-floor machines for bi-directional Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) integration.
Utilize work instructions and checklists directly at the workcenter for increased productivity and quality. Drive continuous improvement with automated Statistical Process Controls (SPC) for operational analysis.
Track inventory with end-to-end visibility and high-resolution genealogy – from the point it enters your MES system to the time it ships out the door for enhanced regulatory compliance and traceability.
Utilize in-process control plans and compliance documentation to achieve and maintain industry certifications.
