We start with episode 1 and show you how the perfect interplay between ERP and MES has a positive effect on productivity.

Every system, whether ERP or MES (Manufacturing Execution System), has its own unique selling points. In practice, ERP systems are now standard for everything to do with order management or work planning. However, the introduction and establishment of an ERP is often lengthy and costly.

The situation is different with MES. Compared to an ERP, this can be introduced quickly and without great effort within a few weeks. All machines and workstations on the shopfloor are reliably connected and networked. This means that all production data is seamlessly recorded, processed and reported back to the ERP.

The automated, bidirectional exchange between ERP and machine control reliably generates information flows for all processes involved in production. All with the aim of enabling efficient production and manufacturing.

And this is exactly what the interplay of ERP in combination with a smart MES solution makes possible.
