Manufacturing Execution Systems (MESs) must interface with the shop-level scheduling tool to ensure that plans are synchronized between the integrated management software (ERP) and the shop-floor management software.

DELMIA Ortems APS software integrates into the MES solutions to offer the ability to reschedule and allocate resources over the very short term.

This integration makes it possible to plan and manage the uptime and availability of equipment, human resources, and raw materials. Joint APS and MES solutions let users significantly improve the operational efficiency of the manufacturing output, reduce the high costs related to bringing fragmented architectures into compliance, and makes up the gap that separates the ERP systems from the plant information systems.
