Systems Strategic Planning
The integration of Manufacturing Operations and Control Systems allows manufacturing and material handling facilities to significantly reduce operational costs. The more integrated the MES system is to your process, equipment and staffing, the better the results. However, the problem facing many organizations is how do we get started?
WebViews has helped several organizations get started as part of our up-front MES strategic planning. Our approach involves developing an “AS IS” situation, which creates an inventory of your current processes and systems and their state, planning the “To Be“ situation for the MES solution and developing a “Road Map” to get there. The process includes interviews with a number of departments since MOPECS integrates the many processes and systems (ERP, operations, supply chain, labour, quality, maintenance, controls etc.) together.
The deliverable is a comprehensive Strategic Manufacturing Operations and Control Systems Plan that contains items such as the end-state system architecture, cost, estimated return on investment, schedule, implementation plan, staffing and roles, and software vendor selection.
