The world of Manufacturing Information Technology bridges the gap between enterprise business systems and shop floor automation. In particular, Manufacturing Execution System (MES) projects have special characteristics that make them difficult to define and manage:
- MES systems provide a rich feature set of business functions. Many projects become derailed when the users want to implement the latest “bells and whistles” without being aware of the consequences to the project timeline and budget.
- Departments that have functioned semi-autonomously now find that they are tightly integrated; therefore organization change management is crucial.
- CSV processes and procedures must be expanded to include the validation of operator actions of the manufacturing process.
- The paradigm shift from “paper-based” manufacturing processes requires detailed analysis and coding of operator actions.
