Staying competitive isn’t easy in today’s fast-paced agile manufacturing market. How do you make more without more assets? Uncover and eliminate downtime to make more parts or cut costs. With the rising cost of utilities and mounting pressure from stakeholders and government, companies look to operations management to correlate energy and item cost.
A Manufacturing Execution System (MES) can improve profitability, help lower utility bills and improve cost of goods sold.
Epicor Advanced MES collects data directly from equipment and operators on the shop floor in real-time, minimising inaccurate and time-consuming manual data collection so you get a clear picture of the what, why, and when of downtime, cycle time, quality, and scrap. Real-time insight helps you pinpoint critical issues, reduce waste, and improve quality and customer service.
Schedule your workload in a way that reduces the plant or warehouse total power demand and takes advantage of rate variations can translate to significant savings – in terms of total energy consumed and the actual cost per kilowatt-hour.
