MES (Manufacturing Execution Systems) ie Production Management System, are systems used to track machinery, lines, semi-finished products and products during production stages, to collect the necessary data for this follow-up, and to obtain reports and analyzes in the light of these data.
This system covers the process from receiving work order information until the product is completed and transferred to the warehouse, and records all activities in this production process, presents reports and analysis.
Data collection, analysis and reporting,Making detailed production and maintenance scheduling,Assigning resources such as equipment, operators to jobs,Monitoring the processes in the production phase,
It is within the scope of MES software to provide data feed to systems such as ERP, MRP, Maintenance Management System, Quality Management System, PDKS.
With the help of activities within this scope, quality, performance, maintenance and actual costs can be managed and capacity utilization can be measured.With the increasing market conditions and competition with each passing day, manufacturers should proceed towards producing quality and salable products as soon as possible. In this case, these systems play an important role in order to be informed about the disruptions that occur in production, to predict with instant and real data before they occur, and to question these situations with the relevant production analysis.
The first and most important function of MES is to collect data from the production facility. This data is collected from equipment and locations.
In the light of the data obtained from the machines and the operators in charge of the machines, data such as start-finish times, cycle times, working speeds, quality rates, stopping reasons and durations, maintenance information are collected with MES. Risk management and preventive analyzes are also offered through the sensors on the machines and the signals from these sensors.
Information such as which order is currently being produced, at what stage the order is, how much of it has been completed in line with the data obtained from different types of locations such as non-equipment assembly, paint shop, source within the facility, and the performance values of these locations are obtained.
Data collected by MES are divided into real-time data and analysis data.
With real-time data, instant information is obtained in cases such as machine failure, waste increase, decrease in production efficiency. These notifications can be sent to the relevant units and responsible via SMS, E-mail or andon screens. The data where orders are made and showing the working status of jobs and operators are also included in real-time data.
Analysis data are reports that are presented to the user with different data processing techniques and evaluated in the short term or long term. Although it is thought that all reports need to be accessed instantly, it does not require monitoring as soon as a report is created, including long-term energy consumption data of the machines.
Another function of MES is to provide data to systems such as ERP, MRP, Maintenance Management System, Quality Management System and to increase the benefits to be obtained from these systems. For example, the sales team can see in which workshop, at what stage, and how much of the customer orders have been completed, instantly and precisely, thanks to MES data.
