Grantek has over 20 years of experience and expertise designing, implementing, and supporting Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) that address manufacturer’s specific needs, vision, and processes. Rather than purchasing rigid a platform that forces you to change your process to fit the needs of the software, Grantek understands an MES must be designed to work with your existing business and manufacturing systems in order to be successful.
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. Grantek’s Agile MES Solutions focus on fast time-to-value to build comprehensive MES solutions.
Grantek’s MES Solutions provide a platform to connect your manufacturing systems to intelligent platforms that enable your Smart Manufacturing journey:
⊙ Connect Your Sytems – MES connects your process control systems (PLCs, SCADA, etc.) with the business-level software like Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Supply Chain Management (SCM), and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) systems. Without MES, significant manual effort is required to coordinate and collect data on manufacturing operations and performance. MES provides valuable coordination and connectivity between the business and manufacturing plants, and enables operations personnel to make real-time, data-driven decisions.
⊙ Data Capture – 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.
⊙ Fast Time-to-Value – Grantek has created an Agile MES approach to leverage iterative development principles to deliver successful MES solutions. The Agile MES process focuses on fast time-to-value, tight collaboration between development teams and end-users, and reducing project risk.
⊙ Collaboration – Exhibit the values of trust, flexibility, empowerment and collaboration between the business, developers, and end-users.
