Manufacturing execution systems (MES) must act individually, flexibly and precisely – a single comprehensive solution can no longer meet the increasing requirements of modern production plants.
Regarding the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) it is becoming increasingly clear that the future can no longer belong to monolithic, closed software systems. Digitally oriented production plants and factories are rarely equipped with the same system type these days. Flexibility within the production chains is the watchword – the best possible solutions for new approaches and requirements within an existing process will make the difference today and tomorrow.
Industry 4.0: Synchronization of decentrally and centrally collected data – in future with MES only In the meantime, MES (Manufacturing Execution System) is considered to be the basic relevant tool to meet the challenges of Industry 4.0. As a central, principally structuring and synchronizing element in a decentralized system, MES is of elementary importance.
Where and how can MES provide more efficiency in a new, state-of-the-art turnout sleeper plant? An interview with RAIL.ONE project manager Stefan Hübner.
