Plant, quality, maintenance and production managers find X!MES to be the ideal tool to achieve excellence in execution. X!MES facilitates production management in all aspects:
Control and coordination of the entire network in the production chain
The tool offers an extensive set of functionalities to support and improve the management of the entire production system, with easy configuration and customization, in addition to being ready to be integrated with the main ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) solutions – SAP, ORACLE, TOTVS and automation systems, PIMS (Plant Information Management System) and LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System) among others.
Simply put, X!MES allows the user to access all information and resources necessary for taking decisions, at the speed and rhythm of the person managing the operation. It can be adjusted intelligently to the specific needs of the business, guaranteeing your company a competitive advantage.
It easily integrates with the production system and the production management systems through the most commonly found interfaces in the market, executing an agile exchange of information and operating as a unique tool to improve the management of operations. It is the recommended solution for companies that still lack an MES system or operate with obsolete solutions.
Other technology solutions can also be implemented in the cement industry, such as the use of PIMS systems for the management of process information at the most detailed level of information and to track information in real time. The use of LIMS systems, for management of laboratory activities, guarantees product specifications within national and internationality quality standards.
