We’ve heard too many horror stories of Manufacturing Execution System (MES) implementations that go over budget, beyond schedule, and don’t deliver on expectations.
Inspired by successful projects in the IT and software development space, Grantek has developed an Agile MES approach that will build a MES designed to work with your existing business, and integrate with your manufacturing systems and processes, and deliver tangible value and returns quickly.
With over 20 years of experience, we know most successful projects are the ones that focus on collaborative design, fast time-to-value, and iterative improvements based on user feedback.
Grantek’s Agile MES Program starts with an MES Assessment phase to define the overall vision, understand the technical landscape, collaborate across stakeholder groups, and define objectives for a Proof of Concept.
The Proof-of-Concept phase is intended to demonstrate that the MES solution can deliver on the vision and starts delivering useful tools to your team quickly. Afterwards, we proceed into multiple Agile Development and Evaluation phases to enhance the solution and apply it at a larger scale until your overall vision has been achieved and the program is a success.
Following this process reduces overall risk on the project, delivers valuable solutions to your team quickly, and fosters collaboration to improve buy-in from your stakeholders.
Grantek focuses on people, process, and technology to deliver game-changing Smart Manufacturing and MES solutions that give your business a competitive edge.
