Smart Connected Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) Software Market

This report offers Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) suppliers and users a comprehensive assessment of the marketplace and provides strategic information for planning through the year 2021.  MES encompasses both manufacturing intelligence and operations intelligence, planning and scheduling, and workflow enforcement.  MES solutions are critical, because the digital plant of the future will be based on collaboration between technologies, people, and global enterprises.

Manufacturers face global competition to manufacture increasingly complex products while accelerating product development and changing product requirements with reducing costs.  Excelling in this environment requires end-to-end connected information and modern manufacturing execution systems.

The most important new technologies affecting the market are new architectures, predictive analytics, cloud, edge, smart connected devices, virtual reality, and data platforms.  Having process visibility is a key driver too.

The number one reason for implementing MES is to improve performance.  Measuring the value and benefits (quantitative and qualitative) gained from MES usage are more important than ever.  Enterprise-wide MES implementations continue to add significant value to organizations wanting to improve profits and implement global standards.  End to end integration is also more significant. 

Modern MES Software Applications Provide Smarter Tools

Modern MES applications provide new, smarter and intuitive tools that include industrial analytics that improve time to value in meeting new product demand.  The software can capture and incorporate manufacturing and business “big data” and turn it into actionable intelligence using analytics, digital dashboards, and other tools that can be used to adapt to changing demand and conditions.  Applications included in MES range from manufacturing and operations intelligence, workforce management, traceability, short term planning and scheduling, material tracking and more.  The MES market continues to grow because it improves visibility, time to market, operational excellence, and the bottom line.
