What's Happening on Your Shop Floor?
sponsored by Plex Systems

Today's manufacturing enterprise gains a key competitive advantage by implementing an extremely strong Shop Floor Control System, also known as Manufacturing Execution System (MES).

It's noteworthy that many ERP software companies claim to support manufacturing companies, but they do little more than accounting, order entry, and other office tasks. They are not suitable for use on the shop floor and they provide little value to the manufacturing department. Many manufacturers indicate that traditional ERP software actually hinders manufacturing, rather than helps it.

The key is to implement a solution that includes job/ production management, process instructions, production scheduling, ultra-detailed real-time inventory control, tool tracking, production tracking, traceability and part genealogy, labor tracking, PLC machine integration, and much more.
