Benchmarking: Digital Manufacturing Networks

Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) - How can they foster network agility and coordination?



Manufacturing companies are facing volatile and uncertain markets, increasing regulation and competition as well as new technologies. Cross-plant Manufacturing Execution Systems may make a decisive contribution to manufacturing coordination and foster network agility.



We want to examine approaches to implement and operate Manufacturing Execution Systems for manufacturing operations management globally across plants in order to develop an agile and resilient manufacturing network based on digital technologies and Industry 4.0.
We apply our proven benchmarking process to identify the most promising Successful Practices and Use Cases in dealing with Manufacturing Execution Systems on a global scale and across plants within a manufacturing network.
