Like many manufacturers, your shop floor operations may be challenged with inefficient standard processes, unpredictable downtime, and difficulties with machinery maintenance. A manufacturing execution system (MES) can help make the most of your shop floor’s capabilities, with tools that can identify under-performing and high-performance machines, and then optimize asset utilization accordingly. Engineers can design, refine, and implement better work processes, and operations professionals can improve preventive maintenance and response times. The result is less downtime, less scrap, more productivity, and lower cost. With the real-time information of an MES, you can transform the shop floor into an important contributor that drives the strategic direction of your business, differentiates your brand, and positions your company as a market leader.

Illinois-based manufacturer Plano Molding sought to replace a paper-and-pencil data collection process with an automated manufacturing execution system (MES). They wanted a real-time look at production data. Many of their decisions were made based on observations and guesses rather than facts, and they needed deeper insights. To improve shop floor efficiency and anticipate and solve production issues before they occurred, Plano Molding implemented the Epicor Mattec MES system. The insights they gained into the shop floor are helping to drive bottom-line growth. Plano Molding has also seen significant scrap savings. Rather than focus on scrap percentage, the Mattec MES solution allows them to focus on higher-dollar-value products. This has led to the Plano Molding team saving $700,000 in scrap improvements. Read the success story to learn more about Plano Molding’s experience and consider how your business might benefit from a modern production system like Epicor Mattec MES.

For years, manufacturers have been trying to streamline processes and associated supply chains by building marketplaces, standardized exchanges, and monolithic systems. In many cases, these solutions missed the mark, resulting in fragmented and brittle processes without easy data sharing. Blockchain, the underlying technology behind Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, can potentially solve these problems. Sharing information via a trusted distributed network with embedded business logic offers many benefits for manufacturing, especially when combined with the IoT and AI communities. Watch this webinar: Blockchain & Manufacturing: A Smarter Way to Drive Efficiency in the Semiconductor and Electronics Supply Chains, with speaker Nelson Petracek, chief technology officer, TIBCO Software.

The Role of Additive Manufacturing in Production of the Future Additive manufacturing (AM) is the process of adding layers of material — most commonly plastics or resins, and increasingly metals — to produce products according to precise digital plans. With AM, products are produced using only the material necessary, therefore minimizing scrap. Modern digital technology is transforming every industry, including manufacturing. Yet in The Rise of Smart Operations, a survey of machinery manufacturers conducted by UPS and IDC, roughly one-half of the respondents said their digital or “smart” operations were lagging the competition or were at a significant disadvantage. Manufacturers will also find practical solutions they can consider implementing today to incorporate smarter operations in their production processes of the future.

Until recently, businesses that were seeking information about their customers, products, or applications, in real time, were challenged to do so. Streaming data, such as website clickstreams, application logs, and IoT device telemetry, could be ingested but not analyzed in real time for any kind of immediate action. For years, analytics were understood to be a snapshot of the past, but never a window into the present. Reports could show us yesterday’s sales figures, but not what customers are buying right now. Then, along came the cloud. With the emergence of cloud computing, and new technologies leveraging its inherent scalability and agility, streaming data can now be processed in memory, and more significantly, analyzed as it arrives, in real time. Millions to hundreds of millions of events (such as video streams or application alerts) can be collected and analyzed per hour to deliver insights that can be acted upon in an instant. From financial services to manufacturing, this rev

Perfect order fulfillment requires companies to have seamless integration of all supply chain execution (SCE) including, logistics processes from manufacturing, transportation, warehouse, global trade to mobile and RFID. Recent research from Gartner reveals that most supply chain organizations continue to operate as functional silos – warehousing, transportation and manufacturing – with minimal, if any, process integration and synchronization between execution silos. The Gartner Research report provides key insights into how supply chain and IT leaders can transform logistics by breaking down functional silos, and designing business processes that span, optimize and synchronize across traditional functional domains.

While a manufacturing execution system (MES) is often viewed as “just” a tool for helping the “shop people” go about their day-to-day tasks, the fact is that such a system also has more than ample potential to help transform the shop floor into a business center of excellence, and propel the company forward as it targets market leadership. Performance efficiencies gained with MES can open up the possibility of increasing output and profitability, all with existing production assets. MES can offer a quick, hassle-free way to turn shop floor operations into a corporate center of excellence.
