Strategic & Site MES Deployment
Deploying a Manufacturing Execution System (MES) or MES individual objects into a production environment, as with any other complex software, has risks associated with it. However, Seabrook Technology Group can help you to mitigate those risks! MES drastically changes the business process, and has a major impact on the daily business life of end users.
When implementing an MES successfully, communication is key. Successful MES implementation depends on gaining insights and input from every department that will ultimately be affected by an MES. Furthermore, Seabrook recommends that successful change management strategies be in place to ensure smooth transition and alignment between technology, personnel and existing business processes.
MES deployment is a complex endeavor, requiring a full project team. On average, MES deployment takes approximately six to twelve months depending on the complexity of the project. Additionally, the timeline and complexity are further impacted if MES is deployed in multiple sites.
Most multinational manufacturing operations that have multiple sites in various nations share information about manufacturing operations through an Enterprise Resource Planning System (ERP), or are transitioning to this model. For global manufacturers MES deployment is a major hurdle with many moving parts. Seabrook can help organizations roll out a standardized software application process management system to help global manufacturers regardless of size or location(s).
