Our research shows that manufacturers who successfully implement a MOM solution outperform their peers by a considerable margin.
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (PRWEB) April 03, 2019
LNS Research, a leading industrial research and advisory firm, today released the 2019 Solution Selection Guide for MOM (Manufacturing Operations Management) Solutions, available for free download.
According to LNS, MOM solutions provide two traditional functions in the manufacturing plant:
- Support and enforce manufacturing processes and procedures, and
- Bridge industrial automation systems that provide plant floor control to enterprise and business operations systems.
Perhaps most importantly, a modern MOM solution can be a starting point for a full-blown industrial transformation process. According to a recent LNS survey of manufacturers, more than 60% of companies are running an industrial transformation program, or plan to within a year. This has led to a recent surge of organizations considering MOM deployment as that starting point.
When coordinated and used effectively, MOM software applications enable industrial organizations to address many challenges throughout the breadth of manufacturing industries, including:
- Increasing manufacturing profitability
- Accelerating product introduction
- Improving quality
- Achieving higher return on assets
- Reducing business risk
- Improving customer responsiveness and service levels
Andrew Hughes, Principal Analyst at LNS Research and author of the guide, said, “Our research shows that manufacturers who successfully implement a MOM solution outperform their peers by a considerable margin when it comes to key performance indicators, especially KPIs tracked in plants or factories. This Solution Selection Guide will be an enormous help to those who have not yet implemented a manufacturing software system, or those who are stuck on outdated platforms.”
The MOM Solution Selection Guide (SSG) includes critical evaluation criteria for any manufacturer considering an MES (manufacturing execution system) or MOM solution, as well as a guide to the most important solution offerings in the MOM market, and the functionality and industries that each vendor serves.
Vendors profiled in the SSG include:
- Aegis Software
- Critical Manufacturing / ASM Pacific Technology
- Dassault Systems
- GE Digital
- Inductive Automation / Sepasoft
- Infor / Forcam
- Lighthouse Systems
- Plex Systems
- Rockwell Automation
