Manufacturing Execution System (MES) - Generix Group

Manage your warehouse with capabilities for light manufacturing or product transformation

The Generix Manufacturing Execution System (MES) manages both warehouse management and processes for light manufacturing.

It works for recipes and other processes such as assembly, kitting, customization, personalization, or other forms of transformation. The system is effective for either process or discrete manufacturing.

Used in conjunction with the Generix WMS, it enables process control, quality management, and regulatory compliance. It does so through powerful real-time traceability. It also enables real-time inventory tracking and control.

The Generix MES is likely to be a good fit for companies in these industries:

Life sciences

Automotive aftermarket

Industrial manufacturing

Food and beverage manufacturing, processing, or transformation

3PLs that offer value-added services such as kitting, customization, personalization, and others

It is not likely to be a good fit for companies that…

Enjoy the benefits of a WMS and MES that are “more than integrated”

The Generix Group MES is a component of the WMS. It’s built on the same platform and uses the same database.

The two systems are beyond integrated. They’re different functional capabilities of the same body of code.

Ensure product quality and consistency with tight process controls

Alert operators when quality-related issues arise

Send automatic validations or email alerts. The system tells operators to take specific actions at critical moments.

Quickly put questionable inventory on QA hold. Keep it on hold until the Quality Department completes an assessment or investigation.

Limit business risk with detailed, real-time traceability

Track and trace the flow of materials. See their status and movement from the time you receive them to the time your customers receive them.

Enable and ensure compliance in the food industry.

Maintain detailed traceability throughout production or transformation processes. Trace the history of ingredients or components through every touch point, event, or process. Track granular detail for lots, batches, or serial numbers in products, assemblies, mixtures, components, or subcomponents.

Run convenient standard reports that show the path of questionable inventory. Quickly identify customer locations to which you’ve shipped such inventory. Automate the process of sending emails. Notify customers fast when the need arises.

Create your own reports and analytics. Supplement the standard reports that come with the system.

Increase productivity, throughput, and efficiency

Maximize up time for production processes. Ensure that the right ingredients are available to process at the right time. Reduce production-line shut downs that occur because materials are out of stock.

Guide employees in picking or transferring inventory to support the production process. Also guide them in managing the output or receipt of inventory. Optimized workflows guide employees through their daily functions with maximum efficiency and speed. z

Improve sequencing of material movement. Synchronize material handling with activities on the production floor.

Reduce production cost and improve yield. Control and monitor the consumption of material.

Synchronize production tasks on the shop floor. Send replenishment signals from the shop floor to trigger just-in-time material movement.

Control and manage inventory in real time

Maintain flexibility in operations

Adjust processes as your needs change. Configure mobile processes on mobile devices.

Configure replenishment signals.

Easily define and redefine inventory-location trees (storage locations, work centers, assembly lines, production cells, and so on).

Generate custom reports to share information with customers or regulators.

Visualize the smooth process flow and traceability from receiving to shipping

Here’s a sample process flow to help you see how the Generix WMS and MES work together to provide powerful traceability:

If the need arises, you can quickly generate reports.

The reports can…

Reap big rewards if you’re implementing a WMS for the first time

Order accuracy of 99.9%

Increased picking productivity (20% to 40% gain)

Inventory accuracy of more than 99%

Expedited inbound activities (15% to 20% gain)

Improved use of warehouse space (10% to 20% gain)

Improve labor management

Reduce inventory levels and capital expense

Eliminate the need for year-end inventory
