AVEVA Manufacturing Execution System 2023 offers first-time enhancements for Edge-to-Enterprise MES solution architectures
The latest version of AVEVA Manufacturing Execution System (MES) will help standardize and introduce best practice more quickly and at scale which in turn will improve operational efficiency and sustainability. The new AVEVA Manufacturing Execution System 2023 also promotes increased supply chain resilience and agility with unified visibility, reporting and KPIs across multi-site operations.
Traditionally, MES solutions have been used locally in plants – requiring robust individual IT infrastructure and systems – significantly increasing total cost of ownership. The new update will provide support for multi-site solutions with a single MES centrally deployed in a corporate data center.
Automated production processes and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) devices are connected with a small footprint of computing assets that collect data “at the edge” of each plant and send it to the central MES.
The new release embraces worker shift management and includes security enhancements to support multi-site MES data center deployments across different time zones, languages and cultures.
Keith Chambers, Vice President Operations Management Software, AVEVA, said: “Amid a backdrop of continued disruption and rising costs, our customers are under pressure to close the business to plant collaboration gap, and improve the efficiency of their manufacturing networks.
“The new AVEVA Manufacturing Execution System 2023 release enables the business to drive digital transformation simultaneously and consistently across multiple connected plants. It will provide a single version of the truth and promote agile supply chain management. In the post-pandemic era, manufacturers’ success will be defined by their ability to be agile and resilient in the face of change.”
