Given the dynamism that comes with global customers, rising competition, and increasing regulations, the manufacturing sector has increased its dependence on technology for a bright future in the 4th industrial revolution or Industry 4.0. While testing out new technologies and creating a new approach to production and supply chain operations, there is one critical building block companies must lay—a manufacturing execution system (MES) that is Industry 4.0 ready. With millions of manufacturing and processing businesses rising around the world, manufacturing execution systems (MES) are delivering a unified production data to eliminate risks in the production process. Overcoming the silos in traditional manufacturing, MES is creating an ecosystem full of connected assets and operations that offer huge potential for productivity gains, and cost savings with profitable growth.
MES has been a pioneer in leading IoT’s sensors-led wave of technology. As a result, MES solutions have reignited the flame that drives manufacturers toward effective cost-cutting, increased safety, and efficiency, besides spurring product innovation across business verticals. These technologies, in combination with other game-changers such as big data, blockchain, and data analytics, have resulted in the creation of better manufacturing processes based around automation and information technology integrations.
As the number of solution providers braving the competition to deliver better MES solutions fills to the brim, choosing an appropriate solution provider is a cumbersome task for CTOs, CIOs, and CEOs. Manufacturing Technology Insights magazine’s editorial team, with the support and guidance from manufacturing technology veterans and industry analysts, has selected a list of MES solution providers that demonstrate excellence and innovation.
