MES 2015 - What is manufacturers' #1 expectation?

A recent survey performed collectively by MESA and Gartner found that quality is now the number one objective for manufacturers that plan to implement MES
(PresseBox) (Dresden, ) MES applications which are on offer today are a lot different than their predecessors in terms of functionality, architecture and implementation: they are more flexible, scalable, modular, cost-effective and analytical.

Manufacturers around the world have taken notice of the changes and their expectations from the implementation of the MES have also evolved.

Initially manufacturers expected three key benefits from MES implementation:

1. Improved throughput at lower costs (higher productivity),
2. Improved product and process quality with fully compliant operations (better quality),
3. Seamless integration of all functional areas and quick response from the IT application towards changes made internally or externally (increased flexibility).

As MES applications become more modular in nature and their capability to communicate with other applications has greatly enhanced.

Where quality is concerned, we recently had an article series on how the MES application may incorporate the notion that 'Quality is Everyone's Business', in the daily life of plant personnel. MES applications now house a complete QMS or Quality Management System, which allows manufacturers to achieve desired level of improvement in their product's quality, process quality and their compliance.

So what do manufacturers expect from the MES nowadays?What are their priorities and desired deliverables from implementing the application?

A recent survey performed collectively by MESA and Gartner found that quality is now the number one objective for manufacturers and that they want quality as the most important deliverable from the implementation of the MES, followed by productivity and flexibility.

Quality being preferred by manufacturers might seem a little surprising initially, to think that business owners would prefer quality over reduced costs, improved productivity and enhanced flexibility to deliver new products faster to the market. But, when one ponders for a while over the new expectations from modern manufacturers, the reason to choose quality as the number one deliverable start becoming clearer.
