Critical Manufacturing Releases V9 Of MES Platform


Critical Manufacturing, a provider of Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) for Smart Manufacturing and Industry 4.0, has announced the release of version nine (V9) of its successful Manufacturing Execution System (MES). The platform, which provides manufacturers with a powerful and flexible pathway to Industry 4.0 (I4.0) manufacturing, is proven to deliver increased efficiency, enhanced quality and yield, and a way to deal with fast-paced, constantly changing markets and customer demands. The new version supports continually changing market landscapes with more flexible deployment architectures, faster revision handling, powerful data management tools, and robust security.

The latest version of Critical Manufacturing's MES uses manufacturing-specific DevOps Center to enable software to be reliably deployed to multiple plants located anywhere in the world, not only ensuring easy implementation, but also providing a single, enterprise-wide platform that can be readily and continuously improved.

Francisco Almada Lobo, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder at Critical Manufacturing, says, “Version 9 of our MES delivers the rich functionality and flexibility needed for sophisticated and complex manufacturing environments along with modern software configuration management tools. Cloud support, containerization and streamlined remote deployments are all integrated to ensure enterprise-wide operations are controlled and can be continually and easily updated to meet new market demands.”

Critical Manufacturing MES V9 uses the DevOps Center and containers technology to enable MES deployment within a matter of minutes in the cloud, on-premises or across hybrid infrastructures. It enables users to manage product variations using a unique combination of versions, revisions and context resolutions flexibly and efficiently. It provides a new level of agility to effectively manage market uncertainties, support continued market competitiveness, and foster innovation.

Supporting I4.0 implementation, Critical Manufacturing's MES using decentralized logic to enable dynamic production with smart products and materials automatically interacting with intelligent machines to ensure optimized production efficiencies. It incorporates an IoT Data Platform for fully scalable, real-time data processing and a Connect IoT module that accelerates the integration of devices and equipment into the platform

The MES provides a complete digital twin of the shop floor to ensure total visibility of operations and performance against key performance indicators (KPIs). Designed for easy 3D modelling of the plant, it further supports augmented reality (AR) scenarios.

Almada Lobo concludes, “This latest version of our MES provides the tools, control and agility needed for businesses to conquer uncertainty and be the best they can. It is a way to integrate innovation into manufacturing processes and provides a platform that will deliver on production needs today and into the future.”

Critical Manufacturing's experts will be hosting a webinar on June 8th to facilitate the launch of the new V9. To learn more about the new V9's features and full capabilities, register for the webinar by clicking here.
