MES (Manufacturing Execution Systems) work by capturing data from manufacturing equipment and the individuals involved in the various steps of making a product. These applications are generally oriented to larger enterprises. But 98.6% of manufacturers in the U.S. have fewer than 500 employees and these companies produce over $3 trillion of goods each year.
PicoMES has developed an interactive software platform that helps smaller factories reduce mistakes, increase output and collect more data to build digital twins of their manufacturing processes. Pico’s no-code device library and internet of things (IoT) network to make it easier to connect machines to a consolidated monitoring system. It also makes it easier to publish operating instructions for guiding operators through specific manufacturing steps. Pico’s software is priced, configured and optimized to meet the needs of these smaller manufacturers.
