IDC Manufacturing Insights News Release, 11/8/10
New Study Emphasizes That CIOs Should Consider Manufacturing Execution System (MES) as a Corporate-Wide Business Application
IDC Manufacturing Insights today announces the availability of a new report that provides a competitive analysis of the top 7 global manufacturing execution system (MES) vendors, designed to help manufacturers orient the choice for their initial short list of potential MES vendors.
This new study, Vendor Assessment: MES Strategies Part 2 — Selecting the Right MES Application (Doc #MIOT01S, November 2010) reveals that many manufacturing organizations — when selecting a solution to improve their manufacturing execution — are uncertain as to whether it is best to use a best-of-breed MES suite or simpler functions available from their favorite enterprise resource planning (ERP), supply chain management (SCM), or product life-cycle management (PLM) vendors.
