· Customer Supply
· New Product Development and Line Extensions
Why MES? It has the capabilities to control operational and performance challenges facing manufacturing companies today and provides the intelligence to allow for innovation of new products and processes.
At EmsPT we like to think of 'Why MES' in other terms aligned with operational interaction and manufacturing intelligence which we call Manufacturing Operational Excellence.
The diagram below illustrates how the pillars of our MES solutions targets real manufacturing operational challenges. We have a daily impact on manufacturing operations, performance and compliance while providing information to provide intelligence to support manufacturing agility and innovation.
