What is Lean manufacturing? Lean manufacturing or lean production, is a systematic method for waste minimization within a manufacturing system without sacrificing productivity. To be a lean manufacturer, you need an agile manufacturing execution system (MES) that adapts to the manufacturing processes and provides monitoring and control functions to efficiently produce quality product in a non-intrusive manner.
The heart of your plant’s manufacturing operations is the manufacturing execution system (MES). If the heart is not performing like it once did though, then it may be time to consider intervention. Below are 10 warning signs that it is time to either replace your current MES or give it some much-needed attention and updates.
The Rockwell Automation – Automation Fair 2017 is upon us and our team is pumped. The Automation Fair is all about enabling a connected enterprise which is something we know a thing or two about – that’s why Pyramid Solutions will be an exhibitor – to showcase our newest and most advanced solutions.
If it is doing its job, a manufacturing execution system (MES), fulfills the role of system of record by collecting “all” data associated with the manufacturing process. The traditional way to tap into this data avalanche is with reports. A useful system has many reports covering all the parts of the database.
If you were not able to make it to last year’s Rockwell Automation Fair, don’t fret. Rockwell is bringing the show to you Novi, Michigan. Located in our backyard at the Novi Suburban Showplace Collection, we are excited to participate in an event that brings together individuals across the entire automation spectrum to network and brainstorm.
