ERP and MES – Division of responsibilities

When integrating ERP and MES systems, the issue of data duplication should be addressed. As a first step, it is good to know the purpose that ERP should serve in the context of production. You also need to answer the question – at what level of detail should the values be in the company’s resource planning system, and what data should remain on lower layers.

It is important that the ERP contains all the necessary information and at the same time does not duplicate data.

A more complete vision of the production process

In the management of a production plant, it is extremely important to provide the acquired data with the appropriate context. The ERP system is responsible for giving information a business context. Additionally, the enterprise resource planning solution determines basic information about the production structure. It gives some general idea. The MES system (e.g. Production Portal) provides detailed information about the production being carried out.​

Real-time data
