Manufacturing execution system (MES)

As your company grows and its processes get more complex, your manufacturing processes become less and less transparent. In order not to jeopardize the company’s success, you need to rethink traditional methods of organizing tasks and reduce the amount of work involved. What can help you here are specialized solutions that improve your management and organization, such as a manufacturing execution system (MES).

The effectiveness of processes depends to a large degree on the organizational talent of the production manager.
What is the current situation in your company? Do you, like most, resort to Excel spreadsheets or manual planning charts for production planning, and do you rely on paper more than any other data media? Then it’s high time you adopted a more modern, digital planning tool!

To help your company take the step into digital planning and management processes, hyperMILL® offers integration with the agile Hummingbird MES.
As a CAM manufacturer, we at OPEN MIND are aware of your growing requirements and have therefore significantly strengthened our cooperation with MES provider Hummingbird Systems. This collaboration allows us to perfectly align both systems with each other, maximizing their performance for your production.
Like hyperMILL®, Hummingbird is also modular in design. Step by step, this system can grow into a comprehensive manufacturing management system – together with you.

The key advantage is that the functional scope of the Hummingbird MES always perfectly matches your requirements.

“Experience has shown that a tool making business with a staff of 25 loses the capacity of two employees on average each year. This is because the required information, data and material are not always in the right place at the right time.
This calculation doesn’t account for overheads caused by manual and thus sometimes incorrect entries, outdated documents or data.”

Marcus Kalbacher, Consultant MES
