FELTEN group looks in the previous systems only investing Serrig risk a precursor of the holistic-based and process-oriented production intelligence solutions company in today’s deploying solutions according to the classical approach of MES, 06.08.2009 – the FELTEN group evaluated the existing MES systems only as a precursor to a development in the direction of intelligent-controlled production processes. Rubio has many thoughts on the issue. The company describes the reasons why the existing MES self-image is too short and not enough intelligence future (PI) for the production: A point of view to isolated: the production management is considered in practice typically used alone and without involvement of the environment with its specific conditions. The MES systems have in fact even forced such an alignment because they are despite of entitlement of integration in ERP systems not for a holistic perspective. Too much technology and system orientation: The actual potential to improve productivity within the processes, but the existing MES strategies dominated by a technical focus. And by a consequent process orientation is missing, existing optimizations can be used poorly. Rigid instead of flexible process management: The MES approach in the conventional way seek to maximize the automation in the process. Due to changes in the markets, the companies are compelled to reach a higher flexibility of procedures.
Therefore, it requires solutions that ensure a needs-based coexistence of automated and manual processes. Because especially if a high planning complexity with a large number of products and production levels and at the same time short-term management decisions must be made, the low flexibility of control causes very static conditions. The man is neglected: many automation strategies, ignore that man as carrier of intelligence, will be never fully to replace knowledge and experience in processes with technology. Through the MES is knocked out but often too much towards Automation the pendulum and has placed man with its productivity potential and in the background, instead of ensuring a balance of technology and human factor.
