Manufacturing execution systems, or MES, is software designed to bridge the communication gap between the plant floor and management at executive levels in an organization. MES serves as a layer between resource planning systems and the plant floor where machines are being controlled and operated.
Inductive Automation offers MES software modules that are built on the power of Ignition. Ignition's MES software fills the need for specific modules such as OEE Downtime, SPC, Instrument Interface, Track & Trace, and Recipe and Changeover.
Ignition offers the following MES Software modules:
By utilizing the Ignition MES suite of modules, your industrial organization can translate massive amounts of data into knowledge that leads to better management and decision-making. Ignition MES is the leverage point for helping improve the productivity and profitability of your organization.
All Ignition MES modules are built to align with ISA-95, the international model for integrating enterprise and control systems, which was established by the International Society of Automation. ISA-95 provides an excellent starting point for successfully implementing interfaces between enterprise and control systems.
Ignition MES modules seamlessly integrate with Ignition HMI/SCADA to ensure accurate information. All of the modules in the Ignition MES suite work seamlessly with each other. Because the modules are built on the power of Ignition, they each share the same advantages, such as cross-platform compatibility; unlimited free clients; robust, out-of-the-box SQL database support; and fast installation.
