Special features

C-MES:Production management includes a complete set of integrated modules for solving the entire workflow. Designed specifically for the metal, film and paper industries, combining many years of experience with C-MES Solutions Ltd. in these areas, it requires minimal configuration and can be deployed and implemented in less than 12 weeks on the enterprise. Key features:


Why buy C-MES:Production Management?

C-MES:Production management is designed specifically for metallurgy, the production of plastic films, nonwovens and the paper industry, combining C-MES Solutions' many years of experience for such manufacturers. The system requires minimal configuration. Since this is a «boxed» solution, the risk of unsuccessful implementation is much less than the adaptation of other production solutions to the specifics of production, as well as the time required for return on investment is much lower.

It was designed to work in 24x7 mode. Based on Microsoft SQL Server DBMS and Windows operating system, we have extensive experience of integration with most modern ERP systems, as well as process control systems using an OPC server (or direct connection with PLCs) and laboratories, quality control systems and management. warehouse


Functionality Overview

Integration with process control system

C-MES:Production management was designed with an extensible architecture to support a wide variety of protocols and devices used in industry.

Customer factories can demonstrate our large collection of interfaces, including:

Quality data collection

C-MES:Production management can collect values ​​for quality characteristics, either from sensors (in real time) to automate process / historical data or by user input.

Similarly, C-MES:Production Management records an arbitrary number of location-specific defects for the production of rolls / sheets / profiles:

Identified defects and the assessment of quality parameter values, depending on requirements based on customizable reaction templates for events, can trigger automatic actions, such as marking elements for re-working or further testing by the quality service.


Overall Equipment Efficiency (OEE)

The OEE module allows users to request historical data to analyze the availability and performance of equipment, as well as the quality of manufactured products. By default, the OEE performance benchmark for the work center is the color coding of traffic, in the three-color mode.

C-MES:Production management records production parameters. This includes collecting information about process measurements, such as caliper, pressure, energy consumption, etc. It also includes a data analysis tool that captures and stores such information. As a result, this tool allows you to:
