Why tool redundancy matters when it comes to improved cycle time, and how MES can help reduce CAPEX towards tool redundancy while maintaining the desired throughput.
Industry 4.0 and automation & robotics have grown in importance in today’s manufacturing landscape. What role do these technologies have in improving process efficiency and capacity? Chris Parsons, Critical Manufacturing, explains how manufacturing execution systems (MES) can improve process capacity.
Augmented-Reality (AR) is very much part of the digital revolution in manufacturing. By simply donning a hands-free headset, workers can add a virtual layer of contextual information on top of what they see before them along with detailed information about a machine or process.
I am John Meulemeester from www.mesa.org and I would like to add some feedback to Francisco’s comments, focused on some particular items.
For me, SCADA and MES are not the same and should be separated. In my 30+ years visiting factories that produce everything you can imagine, I have personally witnessed that most manufacturers have some kind of HMI/SCADA
