Technology and the interconnectivity of things are the "New Lean" - and many manufacturing companies will fall behind if this new concept of the operational revolution known as Manufacturing 4.0 (M4.0) isn't realized.

M4.0 empowers the smart manufacturer to reduce costs and improve productivity and flexibility across the enterprise.

In August of 2017, Infor, a leading provider of beautiful business applications specialized by industry and built for the cloud, announced Infor MES powered by FORCAM. This new collaboration with FORCAM, a global leader of Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT) solutions and MES functionality. The Smart Factory pioneer provides manufacturing companies with all the information they need to control and optimize their production. This creates the basis for optimization measures and sustainable success, thereby securing your competitiveness.

The Infor - FORCAM "shop floor to top floor" solution, Infor MES powered by FORCAM, addresses these challenges by focusing on efficiency and the reduction of machine downtime, through machine learning and advanced analytics.


On August 5th, 2020, you can learn in a webinar debut how the machines on your shop floor can now speak directly with your ERP system -- combining the intelligent and intuitive language of machines through the MES with the operational controls and efficiency indicators of an ERP.


Enterprise Resilience

Enterprise resilience is perhaps the single most significant differentiator determining company success in today’s business climate.

In business, we often think of resilience in the context of enterprise systems. These business systems are designed around prescribed processes with the goal of improving productivity. When viewed holistically, these technologies are key tools of bringing balance to a resilient manufacturing business.

The Benefit of Technology

Traditional manufacturing technologies include back office tools like enterprise resource planning (ERP). The next generation of technologies, and those that are most conducive to resilient design, include manufacturing execution systems (MES) or enterprise asset management (EAM) plus additional edge products.

When ERP meets IIoT

All these systems should coexist within a business enterprise and work in concert to tie together critical manufacturing information.

Ultimately, it is the Manufacturing Execution System (MES) and its ability to share vital manufacturing data across the organization in real-time that promotes both efficient manufacturing and resilient design.
