The system captures data directly from machines and operators, and delivers real-time production metrics and real-time operations analytics in an easy-to-digest visual manner. Discrete manufacturers use Mattec MES to improve on-time delivery, quality, reduce scrap and boost product throughput, helping them deliver the right product, at the right time, at the right cost.

Real-time reconciliation of information between Epicor ERP and Mattec MES ensures data integrity for supporting accurate scheduling, planning, monitoring, resourcing and costing. The out-of-the box integration spans structural data, job scheduling and production reporting, effectively pulling data into a seamless bi-directional information environment. Users will benefit significantly from improvements in promise to order, labor and equipment utilization, and business intelligence as a result of tighter integration and real-time feedback between Epicor ERP and Mattec MES. In addition, a real-time closed-loop between the business systems and the plant floor provides an accurate up-to-the-minute view of machine and production availability for improving operational effectiveness and responsiveness.
