TROY, Mich., April 10, 2018 – Plex Systems, the leader in cloud ERP for manufacturing, today announced it has been recognized with a Notable Mention in Gartner’s inaugural Magic Quadrant for Manufacturing Execution Systems.*
Plex MES is a core application within the Plex Manufacturing Cloud and is used by both discrete and process manufacturers to manage operations from the shop floor to the top floor in more than 20 countries around the world.
Gartner’s report describes the state of the market: “Although the MES market is maturing, we foresee considerable changes related to the technology, adaptability, usability, breadth of functionality and enhanced decision-support capabilities. The changes embodied in these market shifts, driven by factors such as the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), digital twin/digital thread and governmental vision such as Industrie 4.0 will require considerable nimbleness and competency on the part of vendors.”
