Extending Sage ERP with MV2 MES
If you’re using Sage Business Cloud Sage X3 to manage business functions, then the MV2 Manufacturing Execution System (MES) is your choice to extend that planning and management ability into the production floor. With nearly 40 years of experience developing, extending and servicing MES systems, trust ISE and Paper-Less to be your partner in making sure your manufacturing systems integrate perfectly with your Enterprise Resource Management (ERP) systems.
MV2 extends Sage ERP’s business system capabilities directly to the production floor by helping execute orders, schedule production and manage resources. Orders can be sent to the MES from Sage to be scheduled for production, As a full-featured MES system, MV2 can then disseminate information to the proper work cells as the jobs require. In return, MV2 collects and records data in real-time from manufacturing operations and makes it available for integration into Sage. In short, MV2 streamlines operations routing, resource utilization and materials logistics on the shop floor, making the entire production facility more efficient and profitable.
MV2 goes a step deeper into manufacturing monitoring and control. With the integration of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) capabilities, our MV2 MES can more closely watch inventory, parts, Work in Progress (WIP) and their locations in real time. MV2 does this by integrating directly with on-floor systems at the PLC-level.
MV2 can also monitor and manage human workforce operations and integrate that data into job planning systems to get the most out of a production facility. This information can be used to produce more robust, reliable production planning, scheduling, inventory and purchasing decisions. MV2’s depth of integration provides the production manager a finer grain understanding of what is happening right now on the floor.
To provide maximum flexibility and communication with plant floor manager, the MV2 MES can collect all its manufacturing knowledge and take it mobile. The system can be run not just from desktops but also though tablets or other mobile devices through a secure connection to the system. This makes it possible for a manager to get needed updates or alarms wherever that person may be in the facility.
MV2 can be configured to fit with the firm’s system architecture planning, as well. The MES system can be run completely in the cloud, on-site or run on a hybrid basis depending on what’s desired by our clients. Regardless of the system’s location, the MV2 manufacturing execution system can independently continue to record real-time production data even if the ERP system is unavailable.
These are just a few of the capabilities MV2 manufacturing execution system can offer Sage ERP users. Contact us today to learn more about how MV2 can manage your production floor and provide much greater production reporting and control to your ERP system.
