What are realistic expectations for a manufacturing execution system (MES)? MES has been available for decades. That is good news and bad news. Those with experience of older systems – and even many MES offered today – may have a limited view of what such a system can do. Today’s MES is an enterprise system that can drive business success in many dimensions. You will hear from panelists working with MES daily about:
