MES Processes

Collaboration idea derives from the approaches of production intelligence strategies from Serrig, July 7, 2008 – the optimisation potential in the production processes can be used to practice analyses of the Software House FELTEN only sufficient, if the manufacturing companies rely on collaboration concepts. It has been found that in the production structures the ways to increase performance and efficiency improvement not sufficiently exploited, if lacking established procedures for a closely co-ordinated interaction of all divisions involved. A much closer teeth than previously was necessary. Typically, the production manager for the manufacturing solutions are responsible today, ERP systems are associated with the IT sector, the development area, the quality management and more responsible also influence on the design of the manufacturing processes often directly or indirectly”, Werner Felten describes the complex planning and decision-making processes as a key problem. Often hinder then divergent positions of the Entscheidungsbeteiligten the realization of common goals”, observed the Managing Director of the software house in practice. This was to determine, for example, often when assessing technical preferences and investment priorities. Because lack of sufficiently co-ordinated procedure between the involved departments, also no mutual pulses may occur.

Also a transfer will only very limited of innovations in the technologies as on the level of the methods and procedures possible. If a to isolated focus on the own area of competence and no mutual fertilization is possible, the optimization concepts remain, often well below their capabilities”says Felten. Would be pursued however collaborative models, practical effects could be achieved. For example, could the benefits show up in it, then cross-cutting methods are becoming the definition of measures or get experience with SOA concepts from the ERP environment to include MES transfer can be.” The idea of collaboration is derived significantly from the approaches of production intelligence strategies (PI). It results from the recognition that the development of intelligent manufacturing structures is based not only on the support breadth and quality of individual software systems such as ERP or MES solutions, but must include all the components involved technical, methodological procedures and trading people. Production intelligence thus differs from the conventional optimization strategies for manufacturing companies. It a comprehensive integration approach is pursued rather than how far more or less isolated focus on particular methods or software systems”, Werner Felten describes the difference.
