CHAPTER 10Examples for Application
10.1 Mixed Processes
In the course of research for this book, many examples were examined. A complete integrated manufacturing execution system (MES) as is presented in this book could not be found in any company. Although the need for integrated production management is increasingly recognized, generally, only function-specific isolated solutions for partial areas were found. A clear division according to the production forms
• Discrete manufacturing.
• Process-oriented manufacturing.
• Continuous manufacturing is rather the exception. Generally, mixed processes, that is, process-oriented and discrete processes, are needed. The production of roll material, with its refinement process and use-optimized format ...
