MES for Metals & Mining

Customer Content verified by TechValidate.

Manufacturing Execution Systems--they are not just for food and beverage manufacturers!  Here is an example of a Wonderware MES customer using the same framework and product features for a metals/mining application. Foremost for M3 (Metals, Mining, Minerals) companies are productivity (ie, avoiding equipment downtime), product quality, and labor management. Understanding the real-time performance of operations--well that's key to an optimized process. This specific customer example used Wonderware MES to help with not only downtime, but inventory management (what's been processed, what stage is the material in), equipment management, integration to automation/SCADA, and of course, reporting. 

Making operations more productive, profitable, safe and predictable--it's the cornerstone for any MES implementation.
