Comprehensive coverage of Critical Manufacturing webinar with Vishay highlighting the strategy and approach towards replacing multiple legacy point solutions with a single MES across distinct and highly differentiated manufacturing sites located around the world.
Center of Excellence (CoE) carries out fundamental roles in a global MES implementation, enabling the coordination and alignment between MES implementations at all sites.
An MES is a foundation of digital transformation initiatives. Gartner Magic Quadrant can help manufacturers define their MES needs along with which products and solutions are best aligned to them.
While there are clear areas of convergence in terms of end use and performance among some electronic wearables and medical devices, it is important for EMS providers to understand that when it comes to the manufacturing of health monitoring electronic devices, similar (or the same) regulations affect the way a manufacturing process is configured, documented and validated.
A modern MES is capable of providing manufacturers much more than traceability; in fact, the right MES data platform, which is IIoT enabled and has the capability of integrating with IT applications both from automation layer to the ERP/SCM/WMS layer, can act as the cornerstone to successfully answer market needs.
There is a lot of debate and discussion pertaining to the way a Manufacturing Execution System (MES) should function from an IIoT and Industry 4.0 perspective. The words ‘open’ vs. ‘closed’ application are also encountered in such debates; I will focus on the basic difference between an open and a closed MES, and which one is suited for the times to come.
Whether it’s MES, Batch Recipe Management System, or EMI portal, they all are subjected to the “make versus buy” argument or sometimes, the “repurposing” of existing applications to make do. Let’s examine the reasoning.
