Manufacturing Execution System (MES) – Manufuacturing Operation Management (MOM)

The Manufacturing Sector

Digital manufacturing support systems play an increasingly central role in the evolution of manufacturing today. The phenomenon of Industry 4.0, driven by the governments of Germany, the USA (with Manufacturing 2.0), France (usine de futur), and Italy (Industria 4.0), put the support of digital technologies at the core of factory activity optimization.

One such example of this technology that has already been on the market for more than 15 years is the Manufacturing Execution System. This software was originally created to reduce paper activities and structure factories, and has greatly evolved over the years.

A central point of MES systems concerns connectivity with ERP systems, other factory systems, and quite interestingly, connectivity with automation. Ever since its establishment, Hyla Soft has been focused on this type of market and uses different systems - standard and custom - to help companies evolve their factory activities.

Collaborating with international organizations (MESA - APICS) and market standards (such as the OPC standard for machine connectivity), Hyla Soft has integrated heterogeneous MES systems with the main MES platforms and automation systems.

The MOM Solution

Today the concept of MES has evolved into that of Manufacturing Operation Management (MOM): a broader concept representing the digitization support to all factory departments, mainly manufacturing, quality, warehouse, and maintenance.

MOM systems can include different functionalities based on end-user requirements; the main features concern:

  • Planning, management, and execution of orders
  • Declarations of operators' presence
  • Traceability of production lots
  • Machinery performance (OEE)
  • Connectivity with ERP systems to recover Master Data
  • Connectivity with PLM systems to recover other Master Data
  • Connectivity with machinery
  • Quality management
  • Maintenance management
  • Instructions for operators to increase safety
  • Real-time statistical process control (SPC) systems
  • Manufacturing Intelligence and Business Intelligence

The other sessions will give you a chance to understand how Hyla Soft can help you in more specific cases; in order to complete these sessions, it is important to underline how a MOM project must adapt to the particular situation of each factory. Today more or less complex systems exist which have been developed over the years to cover a particular need and help operators; sometimes they are obsolete systems that need to be replaced, but others are well-established systems that only need to be integrated to allow broader visibility and more significant integration.

Our Mission

Hyla Soft's mission is to help each client and optimize their different shop floors in terms of cost balance to increase efficiency and revenues from investments carried out. Each successful project is accompanied by a tangible return on investment (ROI) - reduction of production costs, optimization of factory work, reduction of errors, and increase in efficiency - as well as an intangible return - control of traceability, reduction of risks for operators, and the optimization of collaborations between different functions.
