MES Demystified - How is the IIoT Poised to Boost MES Platforms?
This publisher's research service analyzes the impact of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies on Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES). This research also identifies some visionary companies that have developed best-in-class IIoT-enabled MES solutions. The manufacturing sector is shifting towards the execution of production operations in a dynamic fashion. This is attributed to the advent of several technologies based on IIoT.

The CAPEX and OPEX investment for IIoT-enabled MES solutions across the automotive, aerospace, medical devices, food & beverages, chemical, oil & gas, and pharmaceutical industries is expected to $1.64 billion and $0.97 billion respectively by 2022. Overall, the future MES solution will be interconnected with multiple platforms and come equipped with sophisticated functionalities that can handle adverse situations in the shop floor in real time.

The aim of this study is to analyze the future of manufacturing execution systems (MES) platforms and investigate the adoption of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)-based technologies in the production environment. The study also evaluates the impact of IIoT-based technologies in the process and discrete industries.
