MES (Manufacturing Execution System)

Manufacturing Execution System or MES software

DyoCense business is the development of high-quality and robust MES software. MES stands for Manufacturing Execution System. This is an IT layer between the administrative ERP systems and the machinery on the shop floor / operational control systems. MES exchanges real time production data between these layers.

Production
Quality
Inventory
Maintenance
Production Operations

Scheduling

Plan production orders, determine start and end dates and assess capacity and ability to meet deadlines. Communicate the plan to production with real-time feedback as production executes.

Job Tracking

Production tracking for batch and discrete manufacturing orders. Track production order progress through the factory for each manufacturing operation or for each batch process.

Downtime

Machine downtime is recorded by direct connection to the PLCs controlling production processes (or manually where such connections are not possible); downtime analysis and reporting then identifies opportunities for improvement.

Production Counting

Record production quantities either manually at the end of the production run, or in real-time, by picking up counts from the production lines and equipment. Calculate KPIs such as production efficiency and actual cycle times.

Rejection

Record production waste & scrap manually or automatically. Analyse waste with real-time data capture to help reduce losses.

OEE

Collect and analyse production performance data in the software module that calculates OEE for each production process. Improve production efficiency and accountability.

Line Log Book

Improve communications across all groups within manufacturing, e.g. hand-over between crews on shift change, team and management reporting, operators back to planning. Improve traceability.

Workflow

Model the execution of the manufacturing process in the MES. Identify all the steps that should be followed, capture the progress of the job as it executes and keep a detailed record of the production process.

Quality Operations
Quality

Quality management software allowing data to be collected at the line or in the lab. Issue reminders to operatives, enforce the quality control system , respond to issues and measure conformance

Process Monitoring

Monitor process parameters with the built-in historian of Shopfloor-Online MES. Chart data. Gain deeper insight into the process. Enhance traceability.

Customer Complaints

Record, investigate and manage customer complaints. Improve the speed of resolution. Develop accountability and best practice. Improve customer satisfaction.

Links to Documents

Quickly access all the documents you need e.g. SOPs, CAD drawings, product specification documents, quality procedures. Ensure everyone is working from the latest revision.

Functioning of Manufacturing Execution System

Without this MES intermediate layer, production orders are usually entered manually from the data in the ERP system. Production lines are controlled on the basis of these data. This manual input requires time and there are often errors. Operational control systems in turn generate data about the production process. This data is often stored in separate systems, so you do not have a general overview of production. .

MES software automates this flow and ensures automated data exchange between these two layers. MES automatically sends production orders from the ERP system to the shop floor. The orders are optimally planned (taking account of available resources) and MES converts the raw data that the operational control systems generate into clear reports that immediately offer a clear view of the production process. In this way decision-makers can analyse and improve all operational and production processes in real time.
