Manufacturing Execution Systems
Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) can help maximize performance, increase productivity, reduce waste, ensure product quality, and increase efficiency in manufacturing operations. Today, MES implementation is necessary to remain competitive and meet regulatory requirements in production environments, especially in the Pharmaceutical and Food and Beverage sectors.
MES connects your low-level process control system (PLCs, SCADA, etc.) with the high-level Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system. Without MES, production environments merely consist of a collection of systems that operate independently from one another. MES provides the means for these systems to communicate with one another and enables operations personnel to make real-time, data-driven decisions.
Grantek’s experience and expertise permits us to scale MES to specific needs: our clients pay only for what they need to increase the agility of their operations. Rather than purchasing a cumbersome system that may be difficult to use, Grantek integrates a focused MES seamlessly with the existing business system.
MES provides the means for capturing production context data throughout the manufacturing process and can provide records required by the applicable regulatory agencies. MES software can maintain these records automatically as production occurs, ensuring companies are ready to quickly respond to regulatory audits and information requests. Grantek’s approach to MES implementations leverages the ISA-95 standard to build solutions based on accepted best practices.
