MES Manufacturing Execution Systems

MES SUCCESS STORY / PLASTICS

A global plastics company was challenged with a legacy structure of plant floor systems and paper-based processes in need of modernization. The AVEVA solutions allowed the flexibility and necessary ERP integration to provide consistency and process visibility across their international facilities.

Our Wonderware Expert Services team helped create and implement a project roadmap to drive a global implementation and technology standardization.

Location: United States
Software Products: AVEVA System Platform, AVEVA MES (Quality, Performance, Operations), AVEVA Work Tasks

Project Goals:

  • Gain visibility to manufacturing data and simplify integration with ERP consistently across the global enterprise
  • Standardize core system technologies to simplify supportability and long term maintenance

Challenges:

  • Create a standard plant MES/SCADA template to be leveraged across all sites while incorporating site-specific requirements
  • MES Implementation had to be coordinated with simultaneous changes being made at the ERP layer

Results:

  • Starting with two MES pilot projects at two different business units, incorporating the best of both solutions into the finalized template
  • Common features included:
    • ERP integration
    • Comprehensive recipe management
    • Pre-weigh functionality
    • Process parameter download
    • Production tracking
    • Consumption tracking
    • Line performance tracking
  • SCADA and MES projects completed or underway globally
  • Maintained enterprise-level governance of the global solution by deploying incremental upgrades to previously deployed sites
