Go beyond simple data collection and analysis with a Manufacturing Execution System (MES). MES works in conjunction with your existing SCADA and PLC systems to extract and process high level statistics. MES can also act as a bridge to your company’s ERP system. Common Modules for an MES include:
Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE)/ Downtime Tracking
Statistical Process Control (SPC)
Recipe and Changeover Management
Product and Supply Track and Trace
MDI has experience implementing packaged software (such as Ignition, Wonderware, FactoryTalk, etc.) as well as building custom packages.
MDI provided a leading pharmaceuticals company with interconnectivity using an MES between their plant floor and their System Application Program (SAP).
The MES implementation was integrated with the control computers in the facility by utilizing the MS SQL server database as an interface layer. Downward and upward flowing data were organized into database tables to facilitate MES operations.
