Do Chinese Enterprises Really Need MES and WMS?


Despite rapid industrialization in China and other developing countries, most manufacturing execution systems (MES) and warehouse management systems (WMS) are found in North America, Western Europe, and Japan. These systems have made extraordinary productivity gains possible in the West. However, Chinese manufacturers require a new generation of MES and WMS capabilities to boost their productivity.

printing and typesetting  Corrective Maintenance at a Printing Plant Here's a third example. Machines run by PLC can automatically report faults and diagnostic information back to an MES, allowing people to dispatch the right corrective maintenance actions immediately.

Voting Technology: An Evaluation of Requirements and Solutions


The issues created by the use of punch card ballots, an obsolete technology, during the recent US Presidential election are similar to the ones that businesses confront every day when dealing with technological change.
