You Would be in Good Company

“We used to run 3 to 4% scrap. Last month we were down to 1.37%. You can’t get much better than that; that’s world class and is largely attributable to Epicor Advanced MES. It’s the tool that gives us
the numbers we need to make good decisions.”

Make Your Business Fit, Fast, and Flexible With Epicor MES Software

Leverage Industry 4.0 and the internet of things (iOT) with the wide range of capabilities of Epicor’s MES solution:

Production Monitoring

With Production Monitoring for Advanced MES, you can capture data directly from machines and operators and get real-time production metrics and analytics in an easy-to-digest, visual manner.

 

Eliminate manual data collection.

Receive instant alerts for machine conditions and cycle process variations, efficiency and scrap rates.

Get automated alerts for help calls and preventative maintenance.

Improve cycle times, overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), and plant productivity.

Process Monitoring

Process Monitoring for Advanced MES gives you a real-time view of process parameters as each part is being produced. Identify problems and send alerts, trigger alarms, or even automatically shut down a machine.

 

Monitor every cycle and every machine for real-time visibility into production and quality problems.

Reduce scrap and rework with automatic part qualification and rejection.

Capture part and machine process data for traceability purposes.

Maximize production and reduce costs by automating capture of Statistical Process Control (SPC) and Statistical Quality Control (SQC) results.

Capture part weights and dimensions and machine process parameters, and use the data for correlation analysis.

Quality Management

Statistical process control (SPC) and statistical quality control (SQC) with Advanced MES use real-time, automatic data to help you respond to production conditions helping to reduce costly scrap and rework.

 

Reduce scrap and rework with automatic part qualification and rejection.

Satisfy customer requirements and avoid chargebacks and defect penalties by ensuring conformance to quality standards.

Drive continuous improvements to eliminate waste, increase uptime, and reduce costs.

Alerts and Notifications

Epicor Advanced MES provides alerts and notifications that help supervisors, maintenance crews, and engineers respond faster and keep production on track. With automatic message routing and escalation, your staff can react to conditions in the plant immediately.

 

Minimize downtime with faster response and resolution.

Generate automatic alerts for downtime, machine cycle speeds, process conditions, and exceptions.

Communicate multiple ways to ensure the message is received. Text messages, loudspeaker announcements, e-mail, flashing lights, and audible sounds are just a few of the ways Advanced MES can send alerts.

Production Scheduling

Advanced MES real-time visual production scheduling keeps constant pace with what’s happening on the shop. When jobs start at the right time and orders finish when they’re supposed to, your company can more reliably deliver on its commitments.

 

See what is really happening on the floor with visual production scheduling tools that are changing real-time based on actual cycle time, uptime and scrap rates.

Easily manage Family Molding and optimize lean manufacturing using Kanban scheduling.

Identify tooling conflicts to avoid costly downtime.

Maximize machine loading and minimize downtime to reduce costs and capital expenditure.

Evaluate schedule performance to identify activity-coordination problems, resource conflicts, and possible cost overruns.

Advanced Analytics

Bring operations data to life. Quickly and dynamically visualize every bit of information, and use it to make decisions in one plant or many. Advanced Analytics is a click-to-explore vehicle that helps managers and executives establish priorities, and determine what needs work and who needs help.

 

Eliminate manual analysis for better, faster strategic decisions.

Leverage production information for planning and strategic problem solving.

Increase responsiveness with contextual insight across the enterprise.

Drive continuous improvement.

Maintenance Management

Advanced MES helps you take a proactive, deliberate approach to maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO). Control activities for machine, tools, and auxiliary equipment based on actual runtime, number of cycles or time, so that you can eliminate guesswork and conflicts from your maintenance program.

 

Enable a preventative maintenance program.

Improve equipment reliability and boost longevity.

Get automated alerts for help calls and preventative maintenance.

Avoid production/maintenance scheduling conflicts.

Prevent costly machine repairs and unplanned downtime.

Conduct maintenance activities with precision.

Energy Monitoring

Analyze load patterns, production requirements, and resource demands for energy savings. With Energy Monitoring, you can keep an eye on energy performance indicators (EPIs) to reduce consumption and cut costs.

 

Monitor utility consumption and pinpoint energy savings opportunities at each machine.

Analyze, report, and track energy use with real-time scorecards.

Get the facts about the energy cost to produce each part.

Create the optimal startup sequence to lower peak energy consumption.

Understand tradeoffs between using existing equipment and capital investments.
