PAL Solutions has implemented Manufacturing Execution Systems at several clients. All have achieved great results. An MES will not only track labour and machine time as it is happening but will also link to quality measures from a PLC, track efficiencies and losses, and enable top down management oversight to optimize the floor.
SYSPRO has a particularly strong offering with its “MOM” system for complete Manufacturing Operations Management. It is tightly integrated with the rest of the SYSPRO suite of planning and scheduling tools as well as enabling real time data collection and monitoring of labour, machines, and job results. More importantly it forces to focus on and confront the areas of potential productivity and efficiency losses in your business.
