Wednesday, August 3, 2016 at 1:00PM CST

Join Ultra and the Society of Manufacturing Engineers for a webinar on the integration of ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) and MES (Manufacturing Execution System) solutions for a complete and accurate real-time view into business and production operations. Taking place Wednesday, August 3 at 2pm EDT, this webinar will demonstrate the importance of integrating your ERP solutions with the shop floor level, and demonstrate the potential return on investment (ROI) this synergy can have for your company.

Benefits of MES and ERP integration such as the following will be discussed, among others:

  • Integration of planning, execution and production updates, focusing on real-time data and performance metrics.
  • Gaining the functionality for plant floor data collection, such as collection through mobile devices and PLC integration.
  • Rapid access to plant floor information for quick issue resolution, such as WIP and inventory availability and consumption.
  • Removing paperwork from the plant floor, such as travelers, work instructions and time capture.
  • Having the ability to capture standardized quality metrics and on-the-fly sampling.

System collaboration and real-time visibility are keys to business growth in a variety of areas these days, and manufacturing is no exception. Register now to get insight into how an integrated ERP-MES system will help your company remain competitive and the keys to a successful implementation and integration.
