For companies to achieve sustainable competitive advantage, they must deploy measures and solutions that respond to market changes both quickly and correctly and help adapt production processes – in real-time. A critical tool to achieve this is an efficient manufacturing execution system (MES) that supports timely execution.
Process industries are those involving extraction of raw materials, their transport and their transformation (conversion) into other products by means of physical, mechanical and/or chemical processes.
Critical for this kind of industry is the ability to ensure process quality, economy and safety.
Process Industries have been the drivers of many of the concepts of SIMATIC IT, including genealogy, electronic signatures, quality testing, specifications, batch execution, etc.
SIMATIC IT MES positively affects productivity, quality and safety. It ensures an efficient product tracking&tracing, a complete integration of regulatory and quality requirements, a consistent reduction of costs such as inventory carrying costs, product introduction time and product development costs, regulatory compliance and recall costs.
Moreover SIMATIC IT provides process industries with complete and real-time equipment visibility and production line monitoring according to different roles, tasks and authorizations in production management.
