Production data in a manufacturing plant does the same thing for operators. Even if operators know the task, they still refer to the data to see their performance and measure their success.
MES systems are power-packed with functionality, far more than most manufacturing professionals realize. And while they may not be “magic tools,” their modest investment can work magic throughout your entire company.
