Whitepaper Series "Industry 4.0:" Step 4
Focus on Transparency: The MES Modules MDA, PDA, Monitoring, Alerting, etc.

To be goal-oriented requires numbers, data, and facts. With which MES modules can production companies achieve transparency? What are their functions? What advantages do these modules offer – especially in comparison to the still widespread and error-prone manual data acquisition?

At a Glance

With digitalization, the importance of data has advanced to new dimensions in all areas. Big Data and Deep Learning allow us to gain better insights from huge amounts of data in order to become even more productive. In this way, data is becoming the “new gold.” In production, digitalization is the key to Industry 4.0. Companies that introduce an MES solution invest in the future and competitiveness of their production.

In this whitepaper, you will get to know the MES functions that help production companies achieve transparency in important production areas, support employees in their various activities, reveal productivity potentials and weak points, and thus lead to more efficient production. They are essential core elements for successful production and pave the way to Industry 4.0.
