Research Report - The Role of MES for Smart Manufacturing in Electronics
As Best-in-Class electronics manufacturers move towards smart manufacturing, Industry 4.0, and Internet of Things-connected equipment in the plant, manufacturing execution systems (MES) are becoming more important than ever, because they enable real-time unification of electronics and mechanical production information.

This report explores how Best-in-Class organizations deploy MES for smart manufacturing in electronics and the performance boost they receive for doing so. MES manages, monitors and synchronizes the execution of real-time, physical processes involved in transforming raw materials into intermediate and/or finished goods. They coordinate this execution of work orders with production scheduling and enterprise-level systems. MES applications also provide feedback on process performance, and support component -and material- level traceability, genealogy, and integration with process history, where required.

In this research report, key areas covered include:
  • Pressures and challenges that drive end-to-end MES usage
  • Defining the Best-in-Class
  • MES capabilities of smart manufacturing for electronics
  • How Best-in-Class pursue a better path to operational excellence
  • 10 reasons for end-to-end MES in electronics manufacturing
