A man flies around in a hot-air balloon and realizes he's lost. On a field he discovers a person, so he reduces the height and shouts: "Excuse me, can you help me? I was supposed to meet my friend half an hour ago, but I lost my orientation." The man on the field replies, "Yes, you're in a hot-air balloon and you're floating about ten meters above this field."
"You must be an engineer," says the balloonist.
"That's right," replies the man. "How did you know that?"
"Well", says the balloonist, "everything you said to me is technically correct but I have no idea what to do with your information.
The man in the field answers, "And you're probably working in a planning position in a manufacturing facility."
"That's right," replies the man in the balloon. "How did you know that?"
"Well," says the man, "you don't know where you are or where you want to go and you made a promise you can't keep. The fact is that you are in exactly the same position you were before we met. But now it's somehow my fault."
Flight navigation is difficult, production planning is even more complex
In the battle for competitive advantage, manufacturers are constantly looking for ways to streamline, increase responsiveness, and gain additional and smarter data. Companies that concentrate on production automation within the frame of ERP, MES, SCADA and real-time data from the PLC are therefore particularly successful today in the battle for the competitive advantages mentioned above. A Manufacturing Execution System (MES) or production control system functions as a mediator in this group. It obtains its data from production and makes them available to the ERP system and management.
Get a real-time overview for real-time management
A production control system such as the MyXPert ProductionManager replaces fragmented systems, creating a bridge between management and the factory floor. The result is a complete overview of critical data in all manufacturing processes. This eliminates the need for stand-alone systems and blunt data re-entry, and provides better information about anticipated order delivery dates, improving decision making. A good MES provides real-time analysis, such as performance and quality indicators, presented in a user-friendly graphical format that mimics the process.
There is only one right solution and that is the MySolutions solution
Data is recorded differently than planned. The MyXPert ProductionManager database system combines as much real-time information as possible so you can make real-time decisions. For user-friendly operation, MyXPert Touch Terminals can be integrated if required. They allow operators to start and stop work orders, enter quality data, view equipment downtime, and view real-time KPI metrics. If you want to realize less error-prone processes and faster workflows, an MES like the MyXPert ProductionManager is your key to success. MySolutions is looking forward to introducing you to numerous other advantages of our software for manufacturing companies in a personal conversation. Now all you have to do is contact us, whether by telephone, e-mail or you climb on your hot air balloon and fly over to us.
