Performix xMES® Suite

Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) provides information that helps manufacturing decision makers understand how current conditions on the plant floor can be optimized to improve production output. MES works in real time to enable the control of multiple elements of the production process (e.g. inputs, personnel, machines and support services).

MES is no longer a point application, but a platform that serves a dual purpose: integrating multiple business processes within a site and across the manufacturing network, and creating an enterprise manufacturing execution capability that accomplishes the following:

  • MES ensures error proofing and automated data capture to
    • improve efficiency,
    • quality and
    • reliability at the manufacturing plant level
  • MES supports common processes in and across sites
  • MES establishes a common information and work process platform
  • MES provides an integrated view across all operations to trade-offs for capacity usage decisions, and identifies continuous improvement opportunities

Streamlining SAP Batch Manufacturing and Plant Floor Execution

Traditional Manufacturing Execution System (MES) vendor solutions, built on MESA or the ISA-95 model was taking a holistic view of Manufacturing IT and did not leverage the ERP to its fullest potential. In fact, these monolithic software suites created conflict with SAP/ERP, where multiple areas of functional overlaps exist. This not only drove up the cost of deploying and maintaining this type of manufacturing architecture, but also made it extremely difficult to provide a “single version of the truth” of the Manufacturing Enterprise.

The Performix xMES® Suite was developed to complement SAP by leveraging core ERP master data and extending the functionality to complete the MES batch management solution. Without creating any additional conflict points, Performix provides composite applications that enables the standardization of manufacturing processes across plants and streamlines process order execution, including integration with devices on the plant floor.

Performix xMES® Solution Suite offers:

  • Performix xRecipe™: Graphical tool to manage recipes & Manufacturing Batch Records (MBR)
  • Performix xMES®: Engine to provides instructions and integration to the devices on the shop floor with flexibility to configure business logic
  • Performix Weigh & Dispense: Compliant Weigh & Dispense solution
  • Performix xBatch™: All batch execution events history with Electronic Batch Record (EBR)

Combined with SAP/ERP, this next generation Performix xMES® encompasses the entire Batch Manufacturing Lifecycle, from Recipe creation and management through plant floor execution and post batch analysis.

Generally deployed on the same server as SAP MII at the plant, this SOA-based small footprint enables for rapid deployment and global rollout leading to faster return on investment and delivers on the promise of better Batch Manufacturing visibility and control. The solution is compliant with FDA 21 CFR Part 11 and adheres to cGMP guidelines. Performix suite also provides Manufacturing and Quality metrics leveraging SAP HANA Performix xMES® is the only solution that leverages complete SAP landscape and Infrastructure with out-of- the box integration. Performix has strategic relationship with SAP.
