Manufacturing Execution

Different companies are currently working on reconciling the process management and ERP level so that MES information is integrated in both the PLS and ERP systems. SAP AG produces two products that fulfil this requirement in SAP ME (formerly Visiprise) and in SAP MII (formerly Lighthammer CMS). While the focus of SAP ME is mainly MES processes for discrete production, SAP MII serves as a visualisation and data integration platform for both discrete and continual manufacturing processes.

Today most companies are still often focussing on the transfer of BDE Information such as progress reports, production quantities and deliveries to the SAP ERP world. However the other, very interesting move into the PLS and MES world also offers great potential for supporting decisions by colleagues based on the same key data as the management. This potential is elevated by OR Soft solutions.
