Whitepaper

Our product has been in use by our customers for over 10 years. This in a national as well as international environment.

By supporting our MES solution, success has become measurable.

What is good today can be better tomorrow.

Vorwerk Autotec

Vorwerk Autotec produces body passage elements, switch components as well as hoses for ventilation and fluids not only in Germany but also in China, Mexico and Poland. There was hardly any possibility of comparing the efficiency of the various plants with one another. Nor was the sufficient recording and traceability of the materials sufficiently detailed. Real-time data could only be viewed at the individual machines, but not in the higher-level processes. Up to now, a lack of transparency had stood in the way of optimizing production processes. With the implementation of the MES suite at over 200 plants worldwide, it was now possible to carry out detailed planning of orders, as well as more precise plant control and production data acquisition. The MES suite now also handles the packing of production products into handling units (HUs) - and all this in compliance with the packing instructions from SAP. In addition, a software-supported monitoring solution monitors and controls the MES interface. This enables Vorwerk Autotec to check, correct and, if necessary, restart the data exchange.

"Our new MES system lays the foundation for the successful future of Vorwerk Autotec. Improved transparency in production, the value-added chain and logistics are the basis for future increases in productivity. Essential building blocks of the system are: Real-time data in SAP ERP, reduction (elimination) of manual booking processes, high automation and consistent design of the system for global use".

Dennis Dünnweg, Project Manager, Vorwerk Autotec GmbH & Co. KG

NxStage

NxStage is one of the world's leading manufacturers of dialysis products. The demand for dialysis treatment is growing. Currently more than 1.9 million patients worldwide depend on regular therapy. At its Göttingen site, the company uses the MES suite to support shift supervisors and maintenance staff. Current buffers in production can be seen via a live view, enabling on-demand personnel planning. In addition to error analyses, the software also guarantees quantity analyses.

"We use the MES suite from MKW GmbH to become more efficient, to increase the number of pieces and to make the production process process process-safe. The MES is an important planning element for our production. We are very satisfied with the cooperation: both in terms of adaptations to our needs and implementations".

Rene Meyer, technical management, NxStage GmbH & Co. KG

Some companies use parts of our MES solution.

This can be our MES Starter-Kit, which can be used as a standalone solution for a workstation "out of the box". On the other hand, modules like product data acquisition (PDE) or material consumption are used.
