Today’s market conditions require manufacturers to be more agile and innovative than ever before while relying less on skilled workers who are in short supply. Existing MES and ERP systems have attempted to serve this need for years but overly rely on manual data entry and processes. This market is very fragmented with niche players, bloated features, and rigid architectures that often take years to successfully implement.

In this presentation, Bill Bither, CEO and Co-Founder of MachineMetrics, discusses the next generation of manufacturing SAAS applications that are rising to meet the needs of manufacturing with more vertical specialization and integrations into other best-of-breed systems. He will outline the components of an MES, how to automate the flow of data between these independent systems, and demonstrate how no-code tools can help fill in the gaps. The result is:

  • A manufacturing operations system that meets your specific needs
  • Machines that drive people and systems, not the other way around.
  • A world of choice, where manufacturers are free to build a technology stack with the tools that they need, not just the one their ERP suite has chosen for them.
  • A world of flexibility, where data can be used across every department to exceed customer expectations
