Your Trusted Advisor for MES Vision, Selection, Development, and Support
MES systems exist to allow businesses to maximize the return on their assets by delivering critical information that can be used to make real-time production decisions. For 25 years, Flexware has been integrating MES systems and helping manufacturers realize the business benefits of more efficient operations through a focus on integrating critical enterprise systems.

MES Technology Competencies
MES Case Studies
Ignition OEE & Track and Trace | Food & Beverage
Flexware Innovation collaborated with a large popcorn manufacturer in Northern America over the course of several years for controls related support, but in 2016, through a unique value-add opportunity, Flexware was able to help one of their newest manufacturing plants better identify downtime root causes and provide insight to production efficiency.
Custom Manufacturing Execution System (MES) Development and Deployment | Discrete
In late 2019, Flexware Innovation collaborated with a Swedish-based worldwide leader in automotive technology to solve major pain points from an outdated Manufacturing Execution System (MES) within one of its subsidiaries, who delivers brake assembly solutions via 9 manufacturing sites. With Spark MES, a scalable and fully customizable MES solution developed by Flexware and powered by Ignition, this customer greatly improved overall equipment effectiveness (OEE).
