Real–Time Database of Shop Floor Activity

At the heart of MES is Shop Floor Control and Visual Scheduling. This application is designed for manufacturers to use in the scheduling and control of production, as well as the capture of labor, materials, machines and time used in that production.

Shop Floor Control and Visual Scheduling is a real–time database of shop floor activity including new work, current work–in–progress, and completions. As work moves through the plant and operations are completed, you receive instant feedback so you can respond effectively.
