MES, IIoT and ERP: Building a strategy for a two-tier deployment

Thanks to the rapid growth of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) are becoming a more important focus of enterprise system technology. Although MES has been available and the technology has continued to evolve and grow for decades, many companies still have no coherent MES strategy and often struggle to delineate where MES should end and ERP begin.

Defining what MES is, why it is important, and how it fits into a comprehensive technology strategy for digital manufacturing, factory of the future and industry 4.0 are key to an organization’s operational strategy. This webinar will discuss the various functions MES can serve within an organization, including the expansion of the definition of a traditional MES to introduce the concept of an Operations Execution System (OES), and how MES can fit into a two-tier ERP deployment.

Key takeaways:

  • Varying definitions of MES - what might fit your organization
  • What is an operations execution system
  • Key functions of a manufacturing execution system
  • How a MES can provide connectivity into your ERP
  • Considerations for adoption of a tactical or 2-tier model
  • A walkthrough of a MES scenario
