Wonderware MES Operations
The Power to Control Operations
With MES Operations, you can manage the transformation of materials into finished products in real time by replacing disparate applications or manual methods with a single, easy-to-use work order execution engine. Your teams can access job schedules, bills of materials, product specifications, work instructions, inventory utilization, product genealogy, material traceability, and all other key production elements -- in action, in consort and in context.
You can bring order to just about any industrial operation with:
Integration - Achieve increased manufacturing supply chain efficiency and business agility through reliable and optimized information flow between shop floor operations and business operations. Automatic downloading and execution of the production schedule as well as finished production and scrap are recorded against each order, shift and plant equipment, and can be made available to everybody in the organization.
Execution - Manage local dispatching of production work orders to lines and machines according to available capacity. Shop floor operators have instant visibility of any schedule changes and can execute production orders according to a timely plan and order. Manage master data for manufacturing operations such as processes, recipes, bills-of-material and quality specifications. Reduce lead times by delivering appropriate process information (work instructions, process and equipment setup specifications) to operators and automated equipment.
Optimization - Increase real-time visibility of work orders and priorities for optimal execution. Improve predictability of order fulfillment by accurately monitoring ‘planned vs. actual’ production dates and production quantities. Improve inventory velocity through increased visibility into actual material consumptions and inventory movements in real time. Reduce variance in production results by controlling and monitoring operational activities through standardized production methods, procedures and specifications.
Compliance - Generate electronic records of operational execution, including detailed information necessary to document finished products production, including product genealogy, traceability of materials, production sign-offs, and labor certifications to provide compliance and governance to internal or external regulatory bodies.
Standardization - Identify best practices and unify operational processes across multiple plants; standardize ERP integration and shop floor integration with the adaptability to local needs, using a scalable, flexible Manufacturing IT platform.
Management teams experience production agility
They will see:
- Reduced production costs by optimizing product runs and work schedules with less changeover time
- Improved profitability by increasing throughput, reducing scrap and rework, and providing higher quality products
- Secured brand equity with fast and effective responses to unforeseen events or product quarantine/recalls
- Increased customer satisfaction by increasing transparency in order fulfillment, effective quality documentation and reducing variance in products built to customer specifications/orders
Operations teams experience flexible consistency
They will see:
- Reduced production order lead time for rapid responses to changes in demand by dynamic allocation of production assets and more granular production planning.
- Improved inventory velocity through increased visibility into actual material consumptions, movements and inventory levels.
- Improved predictability of order fulfillment by monitoring accurate ‘planned vs. actual’ production quantities.
- Reduced time-to-volume for new product introductions with quick ‘change-overs’ between products and lines.
- Lower variance in production results by improved consistency in operational activities.
- Improved compliance and governance through complete electronic system records for ‘as planned’ and ‘as built’ information.
