Manufacturers can deploy paperless processes on the shop floor while providing real-time shop floor visibility


Traditional barriers between Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Manufacturing Execution System (MES) diminished in recent years and new trends are emerging. PLM and ERP vendors are providing MES-like functionality while MES vendors are starting to provide both PLM-like and ERP-like features.

This paper describes how the Dassault Systèmes MES solution, DELMIA Operations Management, extends PLM functionality to the shop floor through a native PLM-based MES system.
