Being able to manufacture high-quality products efficiently and flexibly requires a lot of exchange of data. The growing number of laws and regulations also add to the need for information.

What needs to be produced and when (Production Scheduling)? How should a product be manufactured (Product Definition Management)? What has been produced and when? How much material and energy were used? (Data Collection Acquisition)? Which raw materials were used to produce which products? (Product Tracking & Genealogy)? What is the quality of the product (Quality Assurance)? Are there any maintenance needs? (Maintenance Management)?

Manufacturing Execution Systems (the term Manufacturing Operations Management is used more and more) computerise these information flows and thus significantly contribute to optimisation of the production processes.


Batenburg Beenen provides clients with custom-made and standard MES/MOM solutions. When integrating the MES/MOM and ERP systems we apply the ISA95, international standard for the integration of office and production automation.
