A Manufacturing Execution System (MES) is a process-oriented multi-layer operating level production management system. The MES is used for continuous, i.e. real time, controlled execution of existing and current production plans and for getting feedback from the processes. Usually, it has a direct connection to the various systems at the process automation level. These include traditional data collection and all other processes that have a real-time effect on the production process.
Today, companies are increasingly merging with the structures of their suppliers and customers. This creates more complex cross-company processes that must be supported by software. Processes can only be optimised from the management level to the workshop level by creating a connection between the planning and implementation level, i.e. connecting the production process with commercial order processing. This is really what makes the ERP system so valuable and effective.
It combines information for planning, tracking and organisation of all production steps and in this way connects order processing with the control systems of the production world. Linking the manufacturing execution system (MES) with the ERP facilitates optimum interaction between production planning and control.
