Separate ARC Advisory Group research on the markets for both the Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) for the Discrete Industries and the MES for the Process Industries  reveals that manufacturing execution systems are a key technology for industrial digital transformation and smart manufacturing.  The implementation of modern technologies and interoperable MES platforms across the enterprise are key to improving performance and optimizing value in both discrete manufacturing factories and in process plants such as refineries, petrochemical plants, power generation plants, paper and steel mills, and food and beverage plants.  Newer technologies, applications, platforms and products are impacting innovation and efficiency in the MES space and new modular applications that interoperate and enable collaboration in existing and emerging markets.

“New interoperable MES platforms are being designed to accommodate new technologies, including digitization, Big Data, Cloud, advanced/predictive analytics, augmented and virtual reality, additive manufacturing (3D printing), robotics, drones, and other devices and sensors.  These platforms will be able to assimilate IoT data in real time and integrate with more advanced operational technology systems including edge and cloud.  It will also enable enterprise-wide visibility, interoperability, and operator guidance,” according to Janice Abel, Principal Consultant at ARC Advisory Group and key author of ARC’s separate market analysis reports on MES for Discrete Industries and MES for Process Industries.
