AVEVA Manufacturing Execution System

Maximise quality, profitability and the compliance of manufacturing operations

Maintaining Order, Effectiveness and Quality Digitally in Plant Operations

Streamline order flow and production execution while tracking the transformation of products from raw materials to finished goods. Evaluate and analyse yield, quality, and plant resource utilisation.

Improve your business’ operational efficiencies by minimising production costs and losses with visibility into manufacturing execution. A model-driven MES approach makes possible the standardisation of operational processes, equipment and activities for faster gains in productivity, quality as well as cost savings in multi-site operations.

Digital manufacturing execution reduces production costs by maximising throughput, reducing scrap and rework as well as providing higher-quality products. Increased transparency in order fulfilment, together with reduced variance in product quality increases customer satisfaction. Simultaneously, increased responsiveness to unforeseen events or product quarantine/recalls ensures brand equity as well as consumer safety.

Digital Transformation of Manufacturing Operations

Unique data collection and execution capabilities on automated plant equipment make our integrated manufacturing execution solution a first choice for automated production or the manufacturing of fast-moving goods (FMG). Synchronise human and machine actions dynamically. Manage human processes by applying our sophisticated workflow management capabilities.

Production and Inventory Operations Management

Revolutionise production and inventory operations by digitally managing business rules and capturing information relating to the “Who, What, When, Where, Why and How Much” in batch and hybrid production processes.

The manufacturing execution system supplies the tools to manage and monitor work-order execution, enforce products built to specification and document all manufacturing execution detail, as well as material flow in real time on the shop floor.

Digital manufacturing operations management aids in increasing the efficiency and flexibility of manufacturing processes. It also reduces the cost of compliance as well as consumer safety risks. With real-time, reliable information, managers and operators are better able to streamline order flow and production execution. They are also equipped to quickly track the transformation of products – from raw materials through finished goods and evaluate yield, quality as well as resource utilisation for continuous improvement.

Performance Management

Manufacturing performance management assists in keeping equipment operating at peak performance. It also provides the edge that facilitates the reduction of margins and cutting of costs, allowing you to compete at a higher level.

Real-time visibility allows the identification of the weakest links in your lines and makes use of overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) KPI monitoring in order to manage them back to full operating potential. The tracking of work order execution allows for the categorisation of unplanned downtime versus product changeover, idle time or other, planned events. 

Such granularity at the work order level feeds OEE KPI calculations with dynamic performance target adjustments based on different products, thus enabling real-time indication of schedule adherence as well as actual line performance. Integration with the plant control system supports performance management through the capture of production data as well as short stoppage events. This frees line operators from having to collect data manually, while providing actionable information that facilitates and increase operating performance and efficiency.

Quality Operations Management

Digital quality operations management offers everything you require to marshal your equipment, procedures and people around a mission in order to maintain and continuously improve production quality.

Execute quality sample plans with complete functionality for automated and manual data collection, as well as co-ordination with work order execution events. 

Integration with plant automation systems offers effective quality control as well as SPC visualisation for fast-moving goods manufacturing. Integration with workflow management software assists with manual data collection processes and procedures for corrective or preventive measures, so helping to reduce the time to action.

Enterprise Integration

Reap the benefits of increased manufacturing supply chain efficiency as well as business agility through optimised, reliable information flow between shop floor and business operations.

Integrating MES, ERP, or other business systems with supply chain visibility facilitates near real-time decision support. Our enterprise integration software offers automatic data exchange between multiple plant and business applications. It also secures plant business continuity with store forward buffering and message history. It further enables business and manufacturing systems to complement each other, doing so in a loosely coupled, yet highly reliable manner.
