Real-world MES results
With the kind of results manufacturers are realizing with the use of MES, it’s no surprise that ARC research indicates that MES technology use is increasing at a rate faster than automation in general, largely due to its ability to help optimize production for operational excellence.
Toray Plastics (America), Inc., an American based subsidiary of Toray Industries, yielded some big results, such as significant savings in film recovery, increase in film productivity, and improved uptime by leveraging MES technology. Toray Plastics also drove significant quality improvements by decreasing the amount of time for product traceability as well as lowering film defective rate.
GE Aviation leverages MES to give unprecedented visibility all the way down to the routing level of their processes, helping the plant become 1.95% more productive this year. Their on-time delivery improved by 10 points versus the last year's baseline. This means more on-time delivery to customers.
As a well-known North American tissue manufacturing and conversion company, Cascades Tissue Group, leverages MES to provide deeper insights into its operations. With a single view of production data, operators at Cascades Tissue Group can make informed decisions that help drive quality improvements and increase manufacturing efficiency across the various sites— critical for sustainable growth and a competitive edge.
With manufacturing organizations turning to MES to make data-driven decisions about their operations, the future of industrial processes promises greater efficiency and better opportunity for growth.
