Application, Technologies and Benefits

Course Overview

With the advent of Industry 4.0 (I4.0), organisations are looking to transform their plants into Smart Manufacturing plants. The transformation will allow them to manufacture products faster, at a lower cost, with higher quality coupled with the ability to bring personalised products to customers. While many solutions and technologies are available to meet this need, a critical and central technology that organisations must consider in their I4.0 transformation is the Manufacturing Execution System (MES). A system that some consider the "backbone" of I4.0.


This course provides learners with the fundamentals of MES in meeting business KPIs through Monitoring and Tracking of shop floor processes, Overall Equipment Effectiveness, Product Tracking and Genealogy, Equipment Management and Advanced Planning and Scheduling. Learners will discover how MES is central to an organisation's I4.0 Smart Manufacturing initiative through shared case studies and best practices and future developments of MES in the I4.0 context. It also introduces the Smart Industry Readiness Index (SIRI) and how an MES in an I4.0 transformation fits SIRI's dimensions.


key Learning Outcome

Learners acquire knowledge on the applications, technologies, and benefits of Manufacturing Execution Software in the context of I4.0. Learners will identify and contrast the difference between traditional MES and MES 4.0 and relate and apply the required SIRI dimensions with the appropriate banding to their organisation's MES.
