Lack of institutional buy-in is the biggest barrier keeping companies from the benefits of a manufacturing execution system (MES). Despite this, 61 percent of companies in a recent Gartner study say their top production goals are:

  • Quality

  • Traceability

  • Asset performance

To improve these, an MES is exactly what you need.

Below, we present four situations that are signs you need an MES, along with compelling benefits you can show to your managers and team to demonstrate how it improves production, from production efficiency to maintenance.


The statistics used in this graphic are results of Gartner’s Business Value of MES survey, in cooperation with MESA International, performed between October 2017 and January 2018, including 99 manufacturing professionals who use an MES.
