AVEVA MES

Maximise profitability, quality, and compliance of manufacturing operations

Digitally Maintaining Order, Effectiveness, and Quality in Plant Operations


 

Streamline order flow and production execution, track the transformation of products from raw materials to finished goods, and evaluate and analyze yield, quality, and plant resource utilization. Improve operational efficiencies by reducing production costs and losses with visibility into manufacturing execution. A model-driven MES approach enables the standardization of operational processes, equipment, and activities for faster gains in productivity, quality, and cost savings in multi-site operations.

Digital manufacturing execution reduces production costs by increasing throughput, reducing scrap and rework, and providing higher quality products. Increased transparency in order fulfillment and reduced variance in product quality increases customer satisfaction while increased responsiveness to unforeseen events or product quarantine/recalls secures brand equity and consumer safety.

Manufacturing Operations Transformation

Improved operational performance, optimal regulatory compliance, transparency across your supply chain, and increased plant-to- enterprise interoperability.

Digital Transformation of Manufacturing Operations

Unique execution and data collection capabilities on automated plant equipment make our integrated manufacturing execution solution the first choice for automated production or fast-moving goods manufacturing. Synchronize human and machine actions dynamically and manage human processes with our sophisticated workflow management capabilities.

Digital manufacturing execution reduces production costs by increasing throughput, reducing scrap and rework, and providing higher quality products. Increased transparency in order fulfillment and reduced variance in product quality increases customer satisfaction while increased responsiveness to unforeseen events or product quarantine/recalls secures brand equity and consumer safety.

Production and Inventory Operations Management

Transform production and inventory  operations by digitally managing the business rules and capturing information about the “Who, What, When, Where, Why and How Much” in batch and hybrid production processes. The manufacturing execution system provides the tools to manage and monitor work order execution, enforce products build to specification and document all manufacturing execution detail and material flow in real time on the shop floor.

Digital manufacturing operations management helps to increase the efficiency and flexibility of manufacturing processes, and reduces the cost of compliance and consumer safety risks. With reliable, real-time information managers and operators are better equipped to streamline order flow and production execution, quickly track the transformation of products from raw materials through finished goods and evaluate yield, quality and resource utilisation for continuous improvement.

Quality Operations Management

Digital quality operations management provides everything you need to marshal your equipment, your procedures, and your people around a mission to maintain and continuously improve production quality. Execute quality sample plans with complete functionality for both automated and manual data collection and alignment with work order execution events. Integration with plant automation systems provides effective quality control and SPC visualisation for fast moving goods manufacturing. Integration with workflow management software helps to automate manual data collection processes and procedures for corrective or preventive measures, reducing the time to action.

Performance Management

Manufacturing performance management helps keep equipment operating at peak performance and provides the edge to reduce margins, cut costs, and compete at a higher level. Real-time visibility helps identify the weakest links in your lines and use overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) KPI monitoring to manage them back to full operating potential. Tracking of work order execution enables you to categorise unplanned downtime vs. product changeover, idle time, or other planned events. Such granularity at the work order level feeds OEE KPI calculations with dynamic performance target adjustments based on different products, and enables real-time indication of schedule adherence and actual line performance. Integration with the plant control system supports performance management by capturing production data and short stoppage events. This frees line operators from manual data collection while also providing actionable information to increase operating performance and efficiency.

Enterprise Integration

Achieve increased manufacturing supply chain efficiency and business agility through reliable and optimised information flow between shop floor and business operations. Integrating MES, ERP, or other business systems with supply chain visibility enables near real-time decision support.  Our enterprise integration software provides automatic data exchange between multiple plant and business applications, and secures plant business continuity with store forward buffering and message history. It enables business and manufacturing systems to complement each other in a loosely-coupled yet highly-reliable manner.

Model-Driven MES Quickly

Achieve Full, Enterprise-Scale Benefits

 

Digital manufacturing operations management (MOM) results in proven gains in productivity, quality, cost savings, and more. Yet concerns about long implementation times have dissuaded some companies from achieving full, enterprise-scale benefits.

We resolve this with a model-based approach that standardizes operational processes, equipment and activities, making MOM solutions available in weeks instead of months. Our clients report the following benefits:

  • Faster deployment of MES, Recipe and Batch management solutions across multiple sites
  • Lower cost of developing MOM solutions through the use of proven templates and pre-populated fields
  • Greater freedom to refine operations around business strategies rather than the limitations of application development tools and constraints
  • Lower cost of software asset management
  • Improved ability to consistently report and compare plant performance across sites
  • Greater business agility through the unification of plant business processes and enterprise connectivity
