To properly control all equipment in a production environment, a Manufacturing Execution System (MES) is needed. An MES acts as a conductor, controlling the technology that must be able to work together seamlessly. This could include automatic transport, production machines, robots, printers, etc. An MES ensures that correct recipes or procedures are started on time. An MES ensures that production flows are efficiently processed and that capacity is optimally utilised. Furthermore, an MES provides data handling between the different systems.
A well-written MES is essential for the success of an automation system. It must be able to control quickly and, above all, be well integrated so that the system works properly and efficiently.
