Manufacturing Process Management

Senega Workflow and Execution keep track of production schedules, inventory availability, work in progress and a range of other operations management-related information flowing to and from the shop floor, to optimize materials availability, labor and shipping resources by tracking production units, components and subassemblies from the time the order was placed through delivery.

Decisions on the Shop Floor

Delivering minute-to-minute shop-floor information is vital now that the Internet is driving more of a build-to-order manufacturing model. As a result, companies that want to deliver on these modules need to have access to end-to-end decision-making information that drills down to the shop floor.

It's only by integrating a plant-floor system with the rest of the enterprise that companies are able to get the kind of holistic view that's needed to support a build-to-order model, as reflected by the growing trend among manufacturers to move to an Internet-enabled business that emphasizes low inventories, short cycle times and quick order execution.

Increasingly, there's a need for a high degree of real-time and near-real-time flow of information spanning plant-floor operations, order entry, planning and scheduling, CRM and financial operations. MESs are the vital missing link for tying plant-floor information with business management information provided by applications such as ERP and CRM.
