What is MES (Manufacturing Execution System) Software?

Introduction: –

In this article, I will give you some basic knowledge about MES (Manufacturing Execution System) software used in the industry.

MES software is used in higher-level industrial automation for the execution of operations and has improved the production output of the company.

MES software is company-level software that manages and displays an overview of plant performance and execution of different processes. MES software plays an important role in a plant company’s ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) Planning.

But before we start to learn about MES software we have to learn about the levels of automation in the industry.

for easy understanding, I made this Vector graphic. Let’s talk about levels of industrial automation.

Types of levels in industrial automation: –

  • Company level
  • Plant level
  • supervisory level
  • Field Level

Levels of industrial automation

The company level is also called the Enterprise level. It all starts with the execution of the command given at the company level transferred to the Plant level then the supervisory level and finally command reaches the field level.

Now all data from the field level is transferred to the supervisory level after some processing data will transfer to the plant level and finally, it reaches the company level.
