Is your MES outdated?

Many manufacturing facilities have created, installed, and are currently operating with legacy Manufacturing Execution Systems that are “homegrown” or based on outdated or ill-suited technologies. These traditional legacy systems were created out of necessity and mainly focused on Production Order, Tracking Labor and/or Inventory Management and Data Collection.

These systems are typically rigid because they were built for a specific set of requirements and for a manufacturing environment that may or may not still exist. Many legacy systems are lacking the ability to provide real-time management and control of shop-floor operations and are not flexible enough to handle the everchanging plant floor.
