I used this product for a job in manufacturing and liked it very much. I didn't have the best training on it, so it was hard for me to use it to its potential, but what i did know how to use, I really enjoyed.

It is quick and easy to update or make changes because there are no controls preventing such. As long as the person making the updates has the proper permissions for creation of planning, anything can be changed easily without having to get approvals, document changes, or update revisions.

Likes Least

The MES software is horrible for
1) Communicating effective process instruction to the shop floor. There is only option for attaching one image to each sequence, and you have to go put text in a custom field if you do add an image or it will put the picture on top of text. Even still, the pictures' aspect ratio are occasionally changed or the picture cuts off between pages.
2) There is no option for standard text or standard operations to use throughout various products.
3) Revision control. There is horrible revision control, with proper signatures, opportunity for comments by approvers, etc.
4) Linked documents. There is no opportunity for linked documents to be included in the text.
5) Text formatting. There is no option for text of paragraph formatting. Just upper or lower case letters, numbers, and symbols.

Recommendations

Do not purchase. Find an MES software which will better communicate standards and requirements visually to the shop floor.
