Who uses MES/MOM?

The introduction of MES is a fully-fledged business project that must cover the needs of all shop floor personnel:

General Management

Questions you ask yourself:

  • How can I produce more with less?
  • Why is ERP insufficient?
  • What is my daily production, in real time?
  • How much does this production cost?
  • How can I obtain precise and reliable production information?

MES enables you to:

  • Centralise all production information
  • Set up indicators to track production status in real time
  • Coordinate production and ERP

This gives you better control over:

  • Costs
  • Capacity
  • Production plant and equipment
  • Energy consumption
  • Waste management

Production Manager

Questions you ask yourself:

  • What operator skills are needed?
  • How should the teams be organised?
  • Is every task affected?
  • Are delivery times being met?
  • What slippage is there, if any?

MES enables you to:

  • Centralise production information
  • Set up real time performance indicators
  • Manage resources
  • Reduce data input

This gives you better control over:

  • Assignment of skills
  • Team organisation
  • Contingency management (absences, shortages, resources)
  • Lead times
  • Raw materials consumption

Operator

Questions you ask yourself:

  • What should I do now?
  • Why do I constantly have to fill out work sheets?
  • Where are the documents I need? Are they up to date?
  • Have I achieved the objectives set for the day?
  • Do I have time to re-work a non-conforming part?

MES enables you to:

  • Avoid spending time on tracking
  • Display changes in the day’s indicators in real time
  • Respond with full information to a problem
  • List tasks that are constantly updated
  • Track concrete objectives in real time
  • Reduce data input time
  • Have a better overview of the production process
  • Make the most of your skills and take on more responsibilities

Maintenance Manager

Questions you ask yourself:

  • What is the failure rate of each piece of equipment? How can failure be avoided?
  • Do we have the spare part?
  • When is the next production shutdown planned?
  • Who will be available to do the job?

MES enables you to:

  • See the details of down time (by cause, by machine)
  • Immediately sound the alarm in case of slippage
  • Know the operating parameters
  • Transmit production and maintenance schedules

You can thus:

  • Prevent equipment failures, stoppages and malfuntions and analyse them (history, hierarchy) to gain a better understanding
  • Monitor production indicators
  • Improve equipment reliability and increase equipment and tool availability
  • Manage and plan maintenance work
  • Work closely with production teams

Sales Manager

 Questions you ask yourself:

  • What is the status of my order?
  • How can I notify the customer if there is a delay?
  • Is the information reliable?
  • What alternative can I propose?

MES gives you information about:

  • Current status of each order
  • Production schedule, updated in real time
  • Value of inventories (quantity, location), movements of raw materials between warehouses and production shops and WIP inventory status
  • Quality level at all stages of production

Quality Manager

Questions you ask yourself:

  • Does production comply with the customer’s specifications?
  • How can the quality rate be improved?
  • How can re-working and scrap be reduced?
  • Is production compliant with all procedures and regulatory requirements?

MES enables you to:

  • Analyse malfunctions
  • Develop processes and track their use in real time
  • Work closely with maintenance teams
  • More easily comply with customer specifications, regulations, traceability requirements, quality processes, certifications and limits on waste generation
