A Manufacturing Execution System (MES) is a fundamental component of a smart factory and often massively simplifies its implementation. It lowers the system complexity, brings order to the mostly historically grown data overgrowth and is easier to administrate than a collection of individual software or even Excel tables with macros. However, the specification of the requirements for an MES and the selection of providers are often a major challenge, since it is usually located in the "No man's land" between IT, operations and industrial engineering and the relevance for the company's results is unclear.
In the MES week, we would like to bring clarity to the MES jungle: specialist lectures on functionalities and implementation strategies, a seminar and a trade fair hall with the leading MES providers will help you get started on the topic.
More information coming soon.
The MES week will take place from September 21 to 25, 2020 and offers a variety of free informational events.
