Factory Systems Overview

Factory Systems Overview

The Factory MES System has become the heart of the Industry 4.0 / Smart Factory trend.  Unlike ERP / SFC systems, MES Systems effectively Control and Track the flow of Product in the factory with full traceability.  MES Systems also intelligently communicate with Factory Equipment, Automation Cells and a variety of Quality and other Factory Applications, resulting in a more Automated Production Process.

At Athena, Siemens Opcenter MES is the Centerpiece of our MOM Consulting Practice. With Siemens, a well established leader in MOM / Manufacturing Operations Management, we are likewise proud to be a Siemens Strategic Alliance Partner.
