CHAPTER 4Core Function—Production Flow-Oriented Design

4.1 Cross-System Cohesiveness

4.1.1 Classification in the Overall System

In Chap. 2 the following division of the manufacturing execution system (MES) functions into three core processes was suggested:

Production flow-oriented design. Data technical mapping of the products (product definition) with the production flows (work plans) and all resources needed for production.

Production flow-oriented planning. Planning of the production process in the form of production orders (hereafter referred to as orders) and planning of required resources.

Order processing. Execution (control) of planned orders and acquisition/storage of resulting data.

The three core processes are described in more ...
