…it was definitely not our aim to say that we reduced the reject rate by XX%, downtime by YY%, and increased productivity by ZZ% thanks to MES. Our goal is a strong monitoring tool that will elevate our corporate culture, facilitate our management, and inform us via web about results, contexts, and abnormalities. Yet no system will handle this information for us. This is up to us.

Ing. František Řádek

GUMOTEX, a.s.

Introducing MES Merz fulfilled our expectations. Applying this system brought a significant qualitative changes. Operators in production have more time to deal with their work rather than paperwork, and the company has gained an immediate overview of the production conditions. Moreover, everything is available online.

Ing. Daniel Cikánek

OLMA, a.s.

The clear benefit of the MES Merz system is the immediate response to emerging problems or unexpected situations in production. The system is a great asset, and it is just one tool that helps us manage these situations. Higher production effectiveness also depends on the adoption of measures based on the information obtained thanks to this system. MES Merz has been a great investment so far, and it will pay itself off in a very short time and many times over.

– Immediate information on results of production, quality, and maintenance
– Decision-making without delay – response time reduction
– Elimination of losses caused by data collection on paper
– Automatic escalation system for unplanned situations

WE REDUCE DOWNTIME & ANALYSE ITS ORIGINS

– Automatic or manual identification of suspect and NOK pieces
– Identification of the origin of rejects in production and localisation of the fault in the product
– Pareto analysis of reject rate
– Quality improvement through video tutorials, documentation and staff training

WE REDUCE REJECT RATE & DETECT DEFECTS IN TIME

– Monitoring of downtime in individual production equipment
– Pareto analysis of downtime types and areas of their origins
– Interconnection of downtime information with preventive and operational
maintenance
– Smart prediction of equipment failures

WE ACHIEVE HIGHER OVERALL EQUIPMENT EFFECTIVENESS (OEE) THROUGHOUT THE LINE

– Increased availability of equipment due to prevention of downtime
– Increased performance of equipment due to reduction in downtime
– Increased quality due to reduction in reject rate

Companies using our technologies

During our 25 years in the IT area, we have overcome a great number of challenges and guided
scores of companies to clearly arranged and effective production through correct data. Selected
references from individual customers will appear after clicking their logo.

Features that benefit everyone in the company

1

Keep an eye on OEE and other production metrics

Evaluate key indicators of production and keep working with them.

2

Management reports. Reliable and clearly arranged

See what is going on in production – in real time as well as from a long-term perspective. Obtain reports for correct decision-making.

3

Complex overview of the workplace

Data automatically collected by the system are supplemented with the context by the operator: downtime causes, reject type, etc. Thanks to the interconnection with financial data, you will be provided with a complex overview of your production operations.

4

Overview of who works where

Thanks to authorisations by an attendance system, RFID, or fingerprints, you always know which worker is working on which machine, for how long, on which order, and as part of which team.

5

Product traceability

Keep track of the production process for each product. You will obtain detailed information for yourself, your colleagues, customers, and auditors. Deal with any complaints effectively.

6

Warning about problems in production

Activate a system of alarms across the company structure, which will offer timely warnings about obstacles in production (reject rate, excess downtime, maintenance, etc.).

7

Documentation

The system shows workers the current electronic documentation or a video tutorial of how to properly operate each machine according to the ongoing order and the workplace.

8

Operator training

MES MERZ will provide an overview of whether the given machine is operated by a person with the required knowledge, guide them through the required training, and remind them of regular checks in the workplace.

3

Speed matters. No need to wait months for modifications. Technical support is available 24/7.

4

The system meets the strictest demands for connectivity to manufacturing equipment and sensors via PLC and OPC servers.

5

The system is open. Naturally, it can interface with other systems or applications – ERP, attendance systems, maintenance, etc.

6

We collect production and technological data and monitor machine and manual workplaces.

7

You can keep the data on your server or we can store it in the cloud.

8

We can use Microsoft Reporting Services or BI reporting tools for reports.

9

It doesn’t end with MES. Thanks to our experience with Business Intelligence, we can create a company-wide database that will allow you to manage not only production, but also the whole company.

Monitor your data and have production under your thumb. You can see the entire production on a single screen.
