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.
