In companies processes often involve a number of separate and autonomous plants and systems, with no networking or data exchange occurring between them. The manual data transfer not only ensures a high level of manual effort for employees, but also carries the risk of a high error rate.

Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) from SKAN take over the process step of digital networking and data exchange. By connecting to an ERP system, the Manufacturing Execution System allows to plan, control and monitor the production processes in real time.
