MOM Solution Guide
Manufacturing companies have always been and still are facing a tremendous the pressure to perform. Especially now, in a period with COVID-19, manufacturers need to use all of their resources – equipment, materials and people –to the max for achieving efficiency and effectiveness, while being compliant to applicable regulations. Right now, agility has become even more important than it already was in the past years.
Nowadays, manufacturing business managers perceive Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) solutions as a contributor to achieve their strategic goals. It has become clear that not only the (information) technology creates their success. Technology should be part of a balanced approach together with standardized manufacturing operations processes, an adequate organization and governance – with clear roles and responsibilities – and well-skilled people. By continuously improving, the manufacturing performance will grow towards the excellence level.
In 2020, MOMi launched the initiative to publish the MOM Solution Guide to provide extensive information to manufacturers to help them with their selection of an appropriate solution to improve their performance, now and into the future. Because there are many types of MOM solutions, the guide will be published in specific parts. Till now, MOMi published:
- MOM Solution Guide: MES, focusing at production/manufacturing operations (October 29, 2020)
- MOM Solution Guide: LIMS, focusing at quality operations in manufacturing laboratories (February 4, 2021)
In the future, we intend to add more parts for maintenance operations (CMMS), inventory operations (WMS), planning and detailed scheduling (APS) and manufacturing master data (PDM/PLM). Updated versions of the existing parts of the guide will be published annually.
