Manufacturing Execution Systems are matter of discussion for a long time. Production flexibility, energy efficiency or higher yields are the goals which can often only be reached using a modern IT infrastructure. Talking about manufacturing execution systems sometimes equals living in a Babylonian confusion. On the other hand, since last year with IEC 62264 a definition of MES is given and fresh air is blowing through the IT market. There are a lot of manufacturer who want to fill the gap and provide solutions for all kind of tasks between execution and production level.
