Everyone is talking about Smart Manufacturing and Industry 4.0 initiatives. It is a known fact that Manufacturing Execution Systems / Manufacturing Operations Management (MES/MOM) is the foundation for these new innovations.

This 1-day program provides an overview of the essentials of MES/MOM and how to leverage its full potential both on short and long term. A successful change requires alignment of your ways of working in manufacturing operations, organization & governance, your people’s skill set and the supporting IT.

The course introduces the relevant industry standards for MES/MOM, like ISA-95, and many other aspects to create a well-designed roadmap to improve your manufacturing performance.

When you are preparing for the new smart technologies, you need to know about the technologies and solutions available to you today and the best practices for successfully justifying, implementing and sustaining them long term.
