    Having a more comprehensive view of your operations provides both business benefits and strengthens you market position.

    With a digitalized production floor and a MES/MOM solution (Manufacturing Execution System/Manufacturing Operations Management), you can plan, implement and follow up operations, while monitoring production progress in real time.

    It also provides the possibility to make continuous improvements, helping you to identify the areas where improvements will have the most impact. Likewise, you can choose to implement one or more modules depending on your specific needs.

    A MES/MOM solution provides you with the best conditions for successfully meeting your long-term goals – a profitable production operation where customer demand can be consistently met.

    • Increase delivery precision and offer better customer service
    • Optimize inventory levels
    • Increase productivity

    • Reduce the need for key personnel
    • Increase flexibility and shorten change-over times
    • Increase quality and yield
    • Reduce waste and re-work

    • Ensure traceability
    • Work with continuous improvement
  • Situation > Challenges > Benefits

    Every production environment is different, but they still have one thing in common – new things occur all the time!

    Machines break down, there’s a lack of materials or personnel and mistakes happen that lead to unexpected rejections and late customer deliveries.

    In a production where capacity needs to be adjusted to meet demand, we must be able to handle disruptions and still be able to drive and develop an efficient, sustainable operation.

    Sustainable production will be a core competitive advantage in the future. It needs to be achievable in a reality where things are constantly happening and need handling in parallel with improvement work.

    Many manufacturing companies still work with paper-based information transfer and instructions.

    It is certainly possible to send a list with the production order out onto the production floor, but it risks communication errors.

    It also leads to poorer transparency and traceability on the production floor relating to materials and WIP (work in process), as well as uncertainty about final delivery to the customer.

    At the same time, it is common for manufacturing companies to become person-dependent. A small number of experienced employees hold important knowledge needed for production success. What happens when these people are not on the production floor?

  • Situation > Challenges > Benefits

    The transition to sustainable solutions is one of the great challenges of our time. In order for manufacturing companies to maintain their competitiveness and meet environmental requirements, production operations need to use as few resources as possible, minimize wastage and ensure energy efficiency.

    Without traceability and real-time production information it is extremely difficult to optimize energy consumption, minimize scrap/reworking, and ensure on-time customer deliveries.

    For those companies that have been slow to invest in digitalization, and lack the data to reveal what is happening in production, the transition to a more sustainable production risks becoming a guessing game. This approach is likely to result in a far less cost effective strategy in the long term.
