How can a MedTech manufacturer secure its position as a valued partner in the fast-changing healthcare industry? It all comes down to being reliable on many fronts.
The entire plant must have access to the data it needs at all times, from any area of the facility and beyond. Plus, anywhere in the enterprise might need access to accurate, timely, and in-context data from production.
When it comes to deploying an MES across multiple manufacturing facilities, platform architecture is critical. It will impact the ease of implementation and maintenance, and the ability to continuously improve the platform’s applications to ensure the latest technologies and methodologies can be embraced and that manufacturers have greater agility.
MES template helps to standardize processes and embrace best practices where applicable, while still accommodating local customization for the unique needs of each factory.
Digitisation makes operations more efficient, reduce errors and frees up time. Going paperless is the way forward and the MES you choose may prove to be a game-changer.
Center of Excellence (CoE) carries out fundamental roles in a global MES implementation, enabling the coordination and alignment between MES implementations at all sites.
Research Fab Microelectronics Germany has bought together 13 research institutes and given them the advantages of a centralized organization. To further cooperation and accelerated learning among its institutes, FMD decided to source a common Manufacturing Execution System (MES) to operate across its multiple sites.
From preparation, through creation of template and deployment across sites, to final handover and ongoing support – to ensure a smooth project, each stage needs to be carefully planned.
The total cost of ownership of a multi-site MES project is inevitably higher than that of a single site. What are the other challenges of rolling out an MES across multiple, global sites and how can they be overcome?
