A proprietary software program is used by MES to integrates its SAP, ERP and MRP systems. This give MES – and its customers – unprecedented clarity on the status of every project, warehouse and shipment for MES customers and their supply chains.
Every factory and warehouse affiliated with MES is equipped with the ability to manage supply and inventory from a smartphone. Project insight and control are available through apps built by MES for iOS and Android phones.
An MES engineer can log in and take pictures of parts, production or problems and log those pictures as updates, which then are integrated with inventory attributes through SAP. The data is then electronically provided to selected management staff almost immediately to keep them informed of the status of operations and customer fulfillment.
