SAP Manufacturing Execution System (MES)

Increase Transparency and Traceability of Supply Chain


What is SAP Manufacturing Execution System?

Today’s hyper-connected supply networks demand a high level of transparency and traceability. Both customers and manufacturers need full visibility into the end-to-end ordering process. Apart from tools for balancing supply and demand and accelerating planning, enterprises need order processing systems tightly integrated to their manufacturing systems. This enables them to provide users with real-time visibility and access to real-time data. It helps accurately track and manage WIP, optimize plant performance, and improve product quality.

A Manufacturing Execution System (MES) is a system that has the ability to connect, track, and control complicated systems required for manufacturing operations and flows of data. The primary purpose is to guarantee that the manufacturing operation execution runs smoothly and effectively. SAP MES helps accomplish that objective by collecting accurate, reliable, near real-time data about the entire production lifecycle right from the release of the order to the delivery of the product, which helps improve reliability and traceability of products based on the Internet of Things (IoT). The system gathers data about the product’s performance, traceability, work in progress and other activities as they happen in real time. Having access to this data enables you to get a richer understanding of your factory floor and optimize production processes, if necessary.

SAP MES uses methodology that is efficient, high quality, and based on industry 4.0 technology, that allows you to to digitize your manufacturing procedures and integrate systems. It is a powerful, enterprise-level, scalable, manufacturing business solution. SAP MES enables global manufacturers to manage and control manufacturing and shop floor operations. This is ideal for manufacturing companies such as High-Tech, Medical devices, Industry machinery and components (IM&C), and Semiconductor.
