TAIPEI, TAIWAN, May 12nd, 2015 – Avalue Technology (stock code: 3479), a leading manufacturer of industrial computers, to meet the era of Industry 4.0, the trend of intelligent manufacturing and the trend IoT (Internet of Things), Avalue integrate professions of industrial computer designs and experience of providing services to automation customers to get into this market. The first phase will focus on MES (Manufacturing Execution System) and a full range of product is ready to go to market.
Industry 4.0 is driving the developments of intelligent manufacturing, plus, the fermentation of the concept of IoT, it’s important for the manufacturers to replace the traditional working styles, considerable human labor and paper work, with modern tools and ideas. Digitalization, electronic, automation and mobility is implementing into systems and managements of workflow to improve the productivity and quality. In addition, to face the challenges of the increasing labor cost, it’s a must for companies to find out the solutions of how to replace humans with machines. This is not only for decreasing the labor cost; furthermore, it’s also for the better working efficiency, nicer information management, fewer errors and lower NPL ratio. To achieve all the goals mentioned above, it’s essential to make effective links between every single step of the manufacturing process. MES, Manufacturing Execution System, is undoubtedly a useful tool to upgrade the traditional manufacturing to the next level.
In the past, the manufacturing industries heavily rely on human power to do the production, process control and information management which is creating issues of collecting complete digitalized information. Furthermore, in the enterprise, the information system is composed of various kinds of independent subsystem which means poor information integration because of the weak compatibility and connections. MES answers this question perfectly by providing full functions of manufacturing planning, dispatching, scheduling, process management, resource management, quality management, equipment management to production consumption, production performance, production standards as well as the final track management, data analysis and links to the feedback or market reaction…etc. It is estimated that the global value of MES-related products had reached $ 1.06 billion in 2004; in 2006, it jumped to the second place in the global manufacturing management software investment, merely inferior to the ERP system. The annual growth rate of MES systems is 7.1% which brought the global value to $ 22,00 billion 2010 and is expected to reach 31,00 billion in 2015.
In the factory of world, China, MES also plays an important role in the process of industry upgrading: in the “Eleventh Five-year plan”, MES became the breakthrough in several traditional industries, such as steel and petroleum and gas, by providing digital information management functions of manufacturing process; in the “Twelfth Five-year plan”, MES is further adopted by discrete manufacturing industries, and even finance, entertainment, retail, public services…etc and received remarkable achievements. Today, applications of MES system have covered a variety of industries such as steel, aerospace, petrochemical, automobile, tobacco, food and so on. With all these data, there is no doubt; the capacity of MES system should not be underestimated.
Avalue Technology, as one of the leading manufacturers of industrial computers, with the profound knowledge of IPC design and experience of servicing hundreds of automation customers in the world, is proudly introducing a full range of products to MES market. EMS series, rugged embedded systems, are suitable for customers who are with capability of ID design and integration because the flexibility of connection and potential mechanical changes are saved for possible integration with existing systems or to fit special requirements. Series of robust touch panel PCs include ARC, SPC, LPC, MPC and FPC series, which are given with various size of displays and functions for different applications. Customers are able to receive a nice MES solution in a short time by selecting proper Avalue’s panel pcs directly and simply mounting machines in workshop or production lines. Avalue also provides semi-rugged tablet solutions to meet the trend of mobile working environment which are given with enhanced ID designs, effective thermal solutions, high performance platform with low power consumption. Besides of above, Avalue is capable to do the integration service and have kinds of accessories ready for options, such as, RFID、MSR、Barcode Scanner、WiFi…etc, retains great system flexibility to fit actual needs from customers. Sincerely, with all these solutions and service, Avalue hopes to help customers and partners to import MES system and get ready to meet the wave of intelligent manufacturing.
