Siemens Manufacturing Execution System (MES) ensures that quality and efficiency are built into the manufacturing process and that they are proactively and systematically enforced. The Manufacturing Execution System connects multiple plants and sites, and integrates easily with equipment, controllers, product lifecycle and enterprise business applications, quality management and laboratory management systems, and many other applications. The result is complete visibility, control and optimization of production and processes across the enterprise.
Benefits of Siemens Manufacturing Execution System:
Siemens data collection and acquisition capabilities enable you to obtain operational production data that is associated with production equipment and processes.Dispatching Production
Well executed production plans result in shorter cycle times, on-time deliveries and less demand on limited resources. Proper sequencing of manufacturing operations and work-in-progress (WIP) driven by intuitive task management makes it easy for operators to perform the right job at the right time.Labor Management
Siemens PLM Software MES Labor Management provides the status of personnel and may include time and attendance reporting, certification tracking, as well as the ability to track production support functions performed by personnel. It automatically ensures that only qualified employees perform prescribed shop-floor and quality functions. Real-time verification fully supports regulatory and quality systems compliance. Operator Training and Certification enables you to establish manufacturing roles, define training requirements for various roles and process certification requirements, maintain training records and establish certification expirations.
Maintenance Operations Management
With Siemens PLM Software's Maintenance Management capabilities, you can track resource usage based on elapsed and usage time and production quantities; and, based on predefined limits, ensure that production does not outpace maintenance requirements. Maintenance Management provides visibility into resource issues and a detailed history of all activities. With this level of visibility, it is possible to determine true performance values for equipment.Movement, Storage & Tracking of Materials
Siemens PLM Software MES Solutions provide the ability to manage and track the movement and storage of materials, in-process items and finished products, as well as the transfers between and within work centers.Performance Analysis
Siemens PLM Software MES solutions provide up-to-the-minute reporting of actual manufacturing operations along with a comparison to historic and expected results. Performance results include measurements as resource utilization, resource availability, product unit cycle time, conformance to schedule, and performance to standards. Performance analysis may include SPC/SQC analysis and may draw from information gathered by different control functions that measure operating parameters.Process Management
Siemens PLM Software MES solutions monitor production processes and provide decision support to operators for correcting and improving in-process functions. These functions may be intra-operational and focus specifically on machines or equipment being monitored and controlled within a single operation, as well as tracking a production process from one operation to the next.Production Tracking
