Every step in the manufacturing process generates gigabytes of valuable data every time it's run. Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) track, control and document these steps in real-time helping manufacturers optimize production by understanding conditions on the plant floor.

GE Digital's Smart Factory is an MES solution suite that provides contemporary design and visualization coupled with accelerated development and deployment. It seamlessly spans on-premise and cloud-based MES capabilities.  It uses intuitive browser-based, out-of-the-box screens as a digital cockpit for fast time to value while allowing you to create custom views within role-specific dashboards.

With GE Digital's MES, you can create the necessary visibility to quickly generate a new bill of materials, reroute components, change equipment schedules, and re-assign employees appropriately.  Understand your operations better with traceability across the entire scope of the production process.
