Why Cloud MES?
While the cloud in manufacturing is not meant to completely replace on-prem software, hardware, and physical access, it provides new capabilities that expand upon your existing systems to create efficiencies, improve collaboration, and more.
With an MES solution native to the cloud, customers can more closely coordinate activity and bring the entire enterprise under a single system of record while still retaining each of their location’s unique system needs. This allows for the ability to keep plant-specific production, inventory and quality information readily accessible by other plants and enterprise personnel as needed.
