Introduit et developpé par l’industrie allemande il y a une dizaine d’années, le MES insdustrie 4.0 s’est imposé de par le monde chez les grands acteurs de l’industrie comme l’ultime solution pour la gestion des chaines de production et ce dans tous les secteurs de l’industrie. Le Manufacturing Execution System (MES) ou la gestion des processus industriels, est un système informatique permettant de collecter en temps réel les données de production. Le MES fournit les informations nécessaires à l’optimisation des activités de production allant de la création de l’ordre de fabrication au produit fini.

By using up-to-date and accurate information, MES guides and reacts to workshop activities as they occur, and provides reports on these activities. Its use leads to a more efficient operation of the manufacturing workshop, decreases stocks and increases margins. By feeding a two-way flow of information, MES provides critical information about manufacturing activities to the entire enterprise and its supply chain.

  By integrating the ESM into all-new information technology, the 4.0. industry concept has established itself as the new revolution in the industry.

  Industry 4.0, also called the factory of the future or the fourth industrial revolution, is fundamentally characterized by intelligent automation and the integration of new technologies into the enterprise value chain.

It is a digital transformation that is shaking up the manufacturing business by making sweeping changes not only to systems and processes, but also to management methods, business models and the workforce.

The concept of industry 4.0 has its origins in a German reflection completed in 2011. This reflection launched by the government of Germany, then led by the university world of this country and by the big industrial partners, focused on the future of the manufacturing sector. The objective, to say the least ambitious, was to define the parameters that could position the German manufacturing sector as the best performing in terms of productivity and flexibility.

   Data and object connectivity is the defining factor of Industry 4.0. Connectivity of software, equipment, data, massive data to be processed, cybersecurity become essential elements that allow to create intelligence in a manufacturing system capable of greater adaptability in production and more efficient allocation of resources.
