Modern Manufacturing, Driven by Data
In this infographic, insights from Aberdeen Group highlight the power of data-driven insights to drive performance in a modern manufacturing environment.
As pressures on today’s manufacturers continue to intensify, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions alone are not sufficient. Instead, today’s leading manufacturers are harnessing the power of best-of-breed Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) in partnership with ERP to access the business-critical data they need to address today’s manufacturing pressures, tap into significant operational benefits, and become Smart Factories.
Visibility is key and that visibility needs to be clear, precise and timely. The best manufacturers have simple, instant visibility to product, process, quality, test, and materials information factory-wide. The benefits of such visibility are well known to the manufacturing community, and yet achieving it has proven elusive for many. This paper identifies the primary elements of information visibility itself and explores the different technical approaches towards achieving such visibility.
Regardless of their industry or company size, readers of this eBook will gain an understanding of how MOM software is an integral part of the digital thread and how companies can best drive Return on Investment (ROI) for MOM software by using a "digital thread" strategy.

To address these challenges, in this Research Spotlight a roadmap will be provided from successfully deploying a comprehensive MOM solution, supporting the full Digital Thread vision, and driving tangible business results.
The breadth and diversity of products in the medical device industry require Manufacturing Operations Management solutions with a high degree of flexibility and configurability. Unfortunately, these are not characteristic of what most companies currently have in place. In this Research Spotlight, LNS Research will highlight the benefits of next-generation Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) software to address the challenges of quality, compliance, and production capabilities in the medical device industry.
Many electronics manufacturers are underperforming other industries in responding to customer demands and getting new products to market. What is more, they often struggle to justify the ROI to make the needed investments to improve. In this Research Spotlight, LNS Research will discuss how leading companies are facing these manufacturing challenges and achieving success through next-generation Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) software application abilities, and overcoming business hurdles to pursue these improvements.
In this white paper Jason Spera, Aegis Software CEO, turns the traceability debate on its head by suggesting the use of “big data” as a strategy to drive manufacturing excellence can yield complete traceability as a by-product, while benefiting the business through greater quality and efficiency.
