MES systems' role in extending manufacturers' ability to innovate is well known; it has successively ranked as a top priority for organisations embarking on a digital transformation journey. MES systems harness the factory floor data to help create actionable KPIs, relating real-time plant operations to critical business objectives to guide operational decisions and eliminating the need for paper-based logs and striving for more sustainable actionable goals. MES systems today drive significant improvements in various parameters, from product quality to OEE.

As manufacturers double down on creativity and innovation as a strategy to combat pandemic-led disruptions and changes, MES systems are also evolving to empower them. Join us to learn how the Infor MES solution is evolving, in a sustainable way, to accelerate the industry’s ability to connect, optimise, and evolve manufacturing operations .

Key Topics Covered
• MES a vital bridge connecting Level 0 to Level 4 of the organisation.
• Unlocking increased uptime, optimising inventory, creating a paperless shop floor, and improving product tracking and genealogy
• MES on the road to the connected factory
• MES & ERP: Better together
• Enterprise-ready systems and benefits of multi-site integration of MES
