Welcome to MES

Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) software is used to supervise and track work on a plant floor. Our MES Modules offer vertical software solutions built on the power of the Ignition platform. It provides functions such as resource management, detailed scheduling, dispatching, production analysis and downtime management, product tracking and genealogy, monitoring recipes, quality management, variance tracking, real-time predictive analysis, and more. MES is the layer between SCADA and ERP systems. 

Documentation Organization

This comprehensive resource gives a broad overview of our MES Software, the basic instructions about its configuration, along with information on design and coding. It is intended for developers and those looking for detailed technical information. Every effort has been made to ensure that this document is an accurate representation of the functionality of MES. The deployment instructions included can help you get started with MES development as soon as you download. All of the MES modules are built on the Ignition platform.

The help is organized in the following way:

  • Tutorial

An online tutorial is provided that will walk you through every step of installing our software and building an MES project. This is recommended for all users as a first step in becoming familiar with our software.

  • Thematic

There are chapters that provide general information regarding the framework, configuration and use for each of our modules. This section is intended for beginner to intermediate users to gain a general understanding of the software capabilities and how it may be used.

  • Reference

The appendix section provides alphabetical listing of all scripting functions, objects and components. This section is intended for advanced users who know exactly what sort of information they are looking for.

  • Knowledge Base

KB articles have been created that provide detail on how to use our software to implement specific manufacturing solutions.

  • Videos

We have created videos that walk you through using our software. 


 

Using the Search Function

You can use this search box  at the top of the page to quickly find what you're looking for. Here are some tips on how best to use it to find what you're after....

  • If you're searching for a specific function i.e. 'system.mes.object.createFilter()', then typing it in exactly will get you to where you want to be. Typing in 'mes.object.createFilter()' will not. Typing in 'mes object createfilter()' will find it based on the keywords mes object createFilter.
  • Enter 'all:' and your search term to search all spaces across our help (KB, MES 2.0 Help, MES 1.0 Help). For example, all: serial controller
