Why Should Manufacturers Consider a Cloud- based Manufacturing Execution System (MES)?
By Mekala S Rao
New Product Introductions (NPI) have helped fuel technological advancement in the manufacturing industry. As the market for high-quality compliant products with higher throughputs expands, manufacturers have had to work with reduced margins to keep pace. As a result, manufacturers now depend more heavily on Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES).
MES systems are difficult to evaluate, and have been expensive to own and maintain. Due to the ever-evolving nature of the IT landscape and the technological components involved in MES platforms, it’s often difficult for manufacturers to see adequate ROI. Additionally, the shortage of skilled resources necessary to enhance MES applications and business functionalities in an efficient and timely manner has burdened manufacturers of all sizes.
This white paper addresses the MES forces and paper-based processes that are contributing to manufacturing operations’ loss of flexibility and time-sensitive market innovations. Atachi Systems has proposed how manufacturers can leverage the latest disruptive IT technologies (Cloud, SAP HANA) available in today’s economy.
