What is Manufacturing Execution System (MES)

Manufacturing Execution System (MES) tracks production and material quality at all stages within the Shop-floor and gives full visibility of Order and Material Status. Integrates with Level 2 systems to get real-time production data. Helps in taking real-time production and quality decisions.

key Features

Online Production Management

Integrates and downloads schedule and PDI (Production Parameters) to Level 2. Fetches Actual Production Results (PDO) from Level 2 and validates PDO results. Material Number Generation in both On-line and manual options.

Manual Production Capture

Manual Production Capturing Option for each process in case of missing Level 2.


Tracks Genealogy from Raw Materials to Intermediates to Finished Goods. This gives and ability to address Customer Complaints; Track the source of defect and identify Area of Improvements.

Status Tracking

Tracks Inventory, Order Progress Status, Genealogy, Production defects, delays, stoppages, yield and production losses etc. and give visibility from Shop-floor to Top-floor.

Quality Tracking

Test management system for capturing all test parameters in real-time. Test result capture and automatic validation against order parameters. Defect Tracking by location

Real-time Decisions

Deviation alerts and auto diversion options to enable optimal shop floor decisions in real time & reduction of free inventory.

Auto suggestion and diversion

Automatic de-allocation of Orders in case of Quality Failure and suggestions for allocating new Orders based on Material properties.

Sample Management

Capture Sample location and Sample Status
