The manufacturing execution system (MES) is an advanced IT-enabled system that is used for optimizing the production process and improves production output. MES manages manufacturing operations within the factory. It receives order requirements from the enterprise resource planning (ERP) system and receives product definition, equipment setting, and electronic work instructions from the product lifecycle management (PLM) system. The manufacturing execution system offers real-time production-related information such as production cost, overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), quality status, and maintenance cycles.
Factors Driving Growth of the Global Manufacturing Execution Systems and Software (MES) Market
The increasing global competition and changing business scenarios are continually driving manufacturers to focus on production cost optimization and improve production efficiency. Owing to this, manufacturers are adopting advanced technology such as manufacturing execution systems (MES) to streamline their manufacturing process and enhance productivity. The MES automatically collects the data from production equipment and helps in scheduling, tracking, and modifying the production activities and monitors and controls the performance of equipment depending on the delivery requirement. Moreover, recent trends such as rise of the fourth industrial revolution (Industry 4.0) and convergence of the information technology (IT), and operations technology (OT) are expected to drive demand for MES system over the forecast period.
Factors Restraining Growth of the Global Manufacturing Execution Systems and Software (MES) Market
High investment and cost involved in the implementation and upgradation of MES is a major factor that is expected to restrain the growth of the market over the forecast period. Moreover, complexities in the implementation of MES is expected to hamper growth of the market over the forecast period.
