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?
Before a multi-site MES project can be undertaken, the potential business benefits of the MES program must be defined.
A multi-site MES roll-out affects multiple stakeholders and processes. Although it is a complex system, this series of blogs will take you step by step through the challenges and opportunities it offers. It will explain the options available to you and how to create a pathway to implementation that fits with your business and wider strategic goals. It will provide you with the information and tools you need to start your journey to Industry 4.0 – explaining the mindset and approach that will ensure your success.
