Today’s manufacturing environment demands smaller lot sizes, faster cycle times, greater flexibility, and smaller inventory buffers than ever before. This course addresses not only what a Manufacturing Execution System (MES) is and where it came from, but how it can affect market share and competitive position through faster response, broader product offerings, reduced time-to-market, and better performance against commitments to customers.
You will be able to:
Identify the business drivers that make effective MES a competitive weapon in today’s manufacturing environment
Recognize the evolution and functional modules of a typical MES
Recognize application issues of core and support functions
Visualize where MES fits in relationship to planning systems (ERP) and plant equipment control devices
Recognize return on investment opportunities to justify MES efforts
Explain how to develop a business case that drives a requirements definition document
List the basic steps in developing the user requirements for an MES
Define and apply an implementation approach that delivers results
