"In one mouse-click, Mattec MES allocates the production of a particular part to the machines that most efficiently produce it. The time difference from one machine to the next may only be 2 seconds per cycle, but that 2 seconds can mean a lot, especially when you’re looking at 30-second cycle times and 100 hours of run time. That’s nearly 7 hours, almost an entire shift, worth of savings."
Manufacturing Execution System

Optimize Your Shop Floor with a Manufacturing Execution System (MES)

MES Software
Manufacturing Execution Systems, or MES software, provides overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) with direct integration to machinery and equipment, optimizing your capital equipment investment. According to a report by Industry Directions, manufacturers who implement MES software can realize a 400% increase in profitability over a three year period.
Each ERP system we represent provides varying degrees of MES capabilities, ranging from touch screen labor and material entry to full automation and direct data capture from your machinery and shop floor equipment.
The most powerful MES product we represent is Epicor Mattec MES, which collects production data automatically, providing touch-screen technology for operators to add depth and dimension to the automatic production data so you get a much clearer picture of the what, why and when of downtime, cycle time, quality and scrap.
Epicor Mattec MES is designed for a broad variety of manufacturers, including plastics and rubber, industrial metal fabrication, high tech and electronics, packaging, printing and more. Leveraging the Epicor Internet Component Environment (ICE) architecture, Epicor Mattec MES provides seamless integration between Epicor ERP and the shop floor, helping you improve quality, reduce scrap, and boost productivity. The Epicor Mattec MES software automatically monitors machines and analyzes production and performance data 24x7, providing everyone throughout your business an opportunity to take action to improve manufacturing performance.
Epicor Mattec MES software is ERP agnostic. While it is completely integrated within Epicor ERP, it is easily integrated with other ERP business systems and should be a major consideration for manufacturers looking to streamline operations while improving throughput and maximizing return on asset (ROA).
