Section 2 – Manufacturing Execution System Client

This section describes the interface of the MES Client.

Module 3 – Entities

Section 1 – Entities Overview

This section defines physical entities, how to define and configure them, and how to grant them user access.

Module 4 – Measuring Utilization

Section 1 – Utilization Overview

This section explains the Utilization components of MES.

Section 2 – Utilization States and Reasons

This section discusses utilization and how to define utilization states and reasons. It also explains utilization groups.

Section 3 – Performance Events and Operator Client

This section discusses how to use the Operator Client to add events, edit events, and split/merge events.

Module 5 – Measuring Performance and Quality

Section 1 – Performance and Quality Overview

This section discusses common required components for both Performance and Quality.

Section 2 – Items

This section provides an overview of items and discusses the Product Definition group, which you use to create and configure units of measure, items, and item classes. All the Product Definition group functions are discussed, including the reason codes and reason groups.

Section 3 – Shifts and Shift Schedules

This section provides an overview of shifts and shift schedules and explains how to create and configure them. It discusses after-hours reporting and parent entities and describes assigning shifts to the parent entity of a line.

Section 4 – Web Portal

This section describes the interface of the Web Portal.

Section 5 – Performance

This section discusses what OEE is, including Performance parameters and quality of goods produced.

Section 6 – Quality

This section discusses what Quality is, including Line Entity parameters.

Section 7 – Line Introduction

This section introduces lines, including the parameters required for performance and quality calculations common to single and multi-entity lines.

Section 8 – Work Orders

This section provides an overview of Work Orders, and how they relate to jobs. Discussions on Operations, Sequence Number, and Job Positions are included.

Module 6 – Multi-Entity Lines

Section 1 – Multi-Entity Lines

This section provides a discussion of series equipment, segments, and line and job positions. It also addresses additional parameters for multi-entity lines. These parameters include bottlenecks—automatic versus manual bottleneck modeling and Entity Enabled, production sources (bad and reject), and standard item for a line, including unit of measure conversions.

Section 2 – Parallel Equipment

This section discusses the features of parallel equipment. It covers split jobs, sequence numbers, the Start next sequence option, automatic determination of bottlenecks, reason priorities, and the bottleneck switch.

Module 7 – Automating MES Performance
