Manufacturing Execution System (MES)

Advanced manufacturers find themselves in increasingly competitive marketplaces. Cost pressures, delivery dates, and regulatory compliance require manufacturers to launch faster, reduce costs, control quality, and provide traceability into their shop floors at unprecedented levels.

The challenge

Manufacturers must embrace a world of shorter production runs and extended supply chains, and accomplish their goals faster and with fewer engineering and administrative resources. Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) offer the shortest route to control and visibility into your manufacturing processes. However, the road to successful MES implementation is littered with failed attempts, cost overruns, and partially implemented systems.

The solution

PEER FACTORY® MES is one of a suite of flexible, robust, and scalable PEER FACTORY components. At PEER Group, we understand that connecting to factory automation is paramount. As such, our components are built upon our PEER FACTORY Data Management Framework (DMF™), which allows for connectivity to a wide range of factory automation, using a wide range of communication protocols.

PEER FACTORY MES is a collection of reusable components that are tailored to specific customer requirements. At PEER Group, we combine our experience in the semiconductor, solar, electronics, life sciences, and automotive manufacturing industries to bring to market best-of-breed functional modules that meet your manufacturing needs while achieving high levels of uptime and throughput.
