Today the manufacturing industry needs to align business and IT/OT, be connected, data-driven and foremost in a secure environment. The manufacturing execution systems (MES) software collects production data in real time from raw material to finish products. With instructions at the workstation, it provides step-by-step guidance and facilitates internal communication.

Decision making

The company's information system is seamlessly integrated with MES, enabling real-time decision-making that provides robust field support for operators during critical activities such as start-ups, tool changes, checks, and more.

Predict and control costs

Pay for a team, not for individuals. Enjoy greater flexibility in managing your workload without adding up costs.


MES helps create flawless manufacturing processes and provides real-time feedback to decision-makers, optimizing production and making the plant floor more efficient.

Regulation and traceability  

MES allows you to keep a real-time pulse on your manufacturing operations. Manufacturing execution systems are computerized systems used in manufacturing to track and document the transformation of raw materials into finished products.

Regulated companies must adhere to strict rules to ensure traceability compliance. They must ensure that appropriate procedures are in place to manufacture compliant products, that these procedures are documented, and that the resulting products can be easily recalled if necessary. At CGI, we will help you define clear objectives to measure productivity, re-engineer and enhance the production processes to optimize your whole manufacturing plant.

MES benefits

In a world of increasing economic and political upheaval, increasing production costs is one of the many variables that we can manage. MES software provides data to:

  • Improve quality control
  • Achieve paperless work floor activities
  • Capture of cost information more accurately (labor, scrap, downtime, and tooling)
  • Increase uptime
  • Improve product traceability
  • Reduce inventory

At CGI, we examine the drivers of your business and rely on a proven methodology to assess current plant conditions; we then advise on process reengineering to optimize and improve your production.

MES and ERP integration

In today’s manufacturing environment, MES and ERP are part of the ecosystem. ERP brings an operational view of finance, procurement, supply chain and logistics operations, and many more.

MES brings the additional layer to allow control of multiple elements of the production process (inputs, personnel, machinery, and support services).You can rely on CGI and its MES center of excellence and laboratory to bring complete integration knowledge to the table.

ERP integration

From skills shortage to optimization and resilience of your supply chain, environmental regulations, or cost reduction, CGI can support your business, from strategy development through to implementation, execution, and continuous learning.

No matter the size of your business, we have the right expertise for you.
