Siemens SIMATIC IT MES Suite

Why Do You Need a Manufacturing Execution System (MES)?

To meet demand and secure profitability in increasingly dynamic and competitive markets, manufacturers need agile supply chains, synchronized production operations and real-time plant visibility. Because the manufacturing area is where decisions most affect profitability, companies should integrate production metrics into business performance metrics to be able to adapt and respond to changes, increase efficiency, reduce costs of operations and improve customer satisfaction.

These drivers ask for an integrated IT infrastructure that controls all manufacturing elements, materials, equipment, personnel, specifications and procedures and integrates with business and operation systems. According to the ISA-95 standard, an infrastructure of this type is called a Manufacturing Execution System (MES).

Introducing Siemens SIMATIC IT MES Suite

SIMATIC IT Production Suite is the plant-centric Manufacturing Execution System by Siemens which provides exactly these capabilities. In addition to bridging the gap between business systems (ex. ERP) and control systems, it handles production management and execution, coordinates the systems within factories, standardizes production across the entire enterprise and keeps manufacturing processes aligned with supply chain activities.
