Manufacturing Execution Systems in the Context of New, Emerging Architectures — Part 1: Business and Technological Scenarios


Lorenzo Veronesi

This IDC Perspective is part of a two-report series highlighting the deployment setting of manufacturing execution systems in the context of new, emerging architectures. This part focuses on business and technological scenarios. It describes the main needs of end users, highlights the key elements of modern smart factory architectures, and reviews the role of two key technologies: edge and cloud.

"Transformation into the 'factory of the future' is information driven and, therefore, user centric. Every asset produces a wealth of information that must be accessible to, managed by, and reconciled with production processes and workers' activity management," said Lorenzo Veronesi, associate research director, IDC Manufacturing Insights EMEA. "Modern MES solutions enable adopters to collect and analyze data, and they provide derived insights immediately; this enables a revolution in support of organizational tasks."
