Thanks to big promises of revolutionary results, many manufacturers spent big on last-generation manufacturing execution systems (MES) — only to get monolithic, rigid software that caused more problems than they solved, like unplanned downtime.

There are better options. New approaches to manufacturing tech offer far greater flexibility and capabilities to enable more resilient operations — and better experiences for end users. In this webinar, industry veterans will challenge the MES category and uncover a new approach to unlock greater agility and growth.

They will explore: 

  • MES category disruptors: How shifts in the larger manufacturing tech landscape are opening opportunities for next generation tools beyond MES
  • Evolving manufacturing environments: Why agility, usability and integrations are no longer nice-to-haves when it comes to manufacturing tech
  • The shift to a composable approach: How composable, app-based solutions build with a platform differ from out-of-the-box point solutions in terms of deployment, use and maintenance
  • Composability in practice: Examples of how manufacturers are successfully transforming their operations by introducing technology at their own pace
  • The future beyond MES: Predictions for the continued evolution of the manufacturing tech landscape
