iTAC.MES.Suite - Connected Industry Platform independence – Scalability – Investment
security – Online data availability
iTAC.MES.Suite is a manufacturing execution system (MES) that enhances
production efficiency. It consolidates heterogeneous production-related
software into one single package and functions as a bridge between production
and planning operations. Tailored to the needs of discrete manufacturing, it
enhances the quality of products and processes as far as zero defect production.
The iTAC.MES.Suite currently has the highest level of standardization in the
market. As a result, it can be used in any sector and at any location.
With the cloud-capable, platform-independent
iTAC.MES.Suite, quality requirements, standards and compliance requirements in
modern manufacturing industries can be optimally met. Process optimization and
increased productivity, coupled with cost and risk minimization, are the main
areas where optimization can be achieved resulting in
benefits along the entire supply chain.
middleware is a fundamental prerequisite
Based on iTAC ARTES (Advanced Reliable Technology for
Enterprise Systems) middleware, the software can communicate with all standard
ERP/PLM systems and equipment via standard interfaces. The
internet-based concept makes it possible to operate several production sites
via a private or public cloud-based MES infrastructure - providing
standardized, central data management in a
The iTAC.MES.Suite is also available as a cloud-based
MES solution. Customers who opt for the cloud-based MES don’t need an own
server infrastructure and the associated services for the continuous operation
of the MES-side application and database server components. So the MES-side
iTAC software portfolio is also available to companies that are unwilling or
unable to operate their own datacenters, enabling small and medium-sized
enterprises to participate in the cyber physical world.
To meet market
and customer requirements, the iTAC.MES.Suite is based on the following
of effective production
The iTAC.MES.Suite differs considerably from
conventional MES software products, which merely offer passive traceability,
since it has an active traceability function. Bi-directional
communication between machines means that process interlocking for compliance
with development and production specifications is possible in addition to the
pure documentation of the production process. Active traceability helps to
minimize reworking costs.
The product has six functions which considerably
enhance quality and productivity. Traceability (TR), Material Logistics (ML),
Computer Aided Quality (CAQ), Production Management (PM), Advanced Production
Scheduling (APS) and Add-On (AO).
The standardized, platform independent MES software
helps to consolidate and harmonize existing production-related IT environments
and leads to a continuous reduction in IT operating costs. It also links the
ERP/PLM and the machines or plants.
