The Pygmalion effect of expecting the best results can be a key to deriving the benefits of change in a company. Knowing the company’s own value chain, placing clear expectations internally and in-line with a future, more digital self, followed by choosing the right MES and driving results through capable, motivated leadership, will deliver a digitally transformed enterprise.

The Euro 2020 final is truly a masterclass in MES selection. How does the MES selection process relate to the Euro 2020 final? Learn from the champions and select your digital transformation partners and MES wisely.
This distinction between industry segment needs is a primary reason that MES products are specialized by industry. Getting a MES/QMS system that captures the distinct processes, nomenclature, manufacturing modes and quality regulations is driven by industry-specific functionality. The selection of a specific vendor should include the focus, functionality and roadmap for that industry.
After being named as a leader in the 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for MES, our MES scored highest out of 19 vendors evaluated for “Batch/Repetitive Flow Manufacturing”, “Complex Discrete Manufacturing” and “Highly Regulated Industries”. We are proud to say that our modern MES ranked highest for the complex manufacturing styles it was designed for.
While 3D printing or additive manufacturing has vast potential in reducing lead times for discrete and customized manufactured products/parts, it is vital that the MES being used to usher in the technology is ready for the changes which will occur across the value chain, in order to ensure that the true potential of the technology and other Industry 4.0 technologies being used in tandem are realized.
If you have the right MES application deployed, the speed of your digitalization efforts does not need to be subject to your employee’s skill development; it can be done simultaneously and organically to deliver the best results. Having the right MES will help your organization harness your specific and unique organizational knowledge, and develop a new stream of knowledge.
Industry 4.0 leverages both the Internet of Things-based devices and cloud-based computing, using AR and/or VR for an enriched and immersive experience, enabling enterprises to react faster. Armed with high quality information, the resulting actions help to achieve Industry 4.0 benefits associated with speed, accuracy, clarity and in some cases, innovation.
