By automating tasks, preventing errors, driving in-line quality, and ensuring accurate communication between the top floor and the shop floor.
With a comprehensive, real-time view of your entire production lifecycle.
For both you and your customers with full traceability and operations monitoring.
In many plants today, people still manually enter much of their data. Plex’s paperless, easy-to-use operator Control Panel automates tasks, preventing human errors and increasing productivity. Plant operators can mitigate compliance risk through database-driven traceability and direct, in-line quality control.
Traditionally, MES/MOM systems contain disparate applications connected through complex integrations. Plex provides a unified solution — that means a single user interface to applications that are designed to work as one. And because it’s in the cloud, you can access your full production lifecycle from anywhere, at any time, on any connected device.
Changes from the top floor plan are dispatched to the shop floor scheduler. For every action on the shop floor, there is a transaction in Plex. Our flexible, configurable cloud MES is also easy to deploy, standardize across your enterprise, and connect to your corporate ERP.
Plex MES/MOM Systems are designed to provide immediate value for your company, while preparing you for whatever tomorrow brings.What is Smart Manufacturing?
