Manufacturing Execution Systems education program launched

Supplier News

Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) connect the physical process layer through control systems with the enterprise resource planning layer to create a fully connected supply change management system.

MESA International is the global industry community for manufacturers, producers, industry leaders and solution providers, who are focused on improving Operations Management capabilities through the effective application of technology solutions and best practices throughout the world. 

ATS Applied Tech Systems Pty Ltd  is a platinum sponsor of MESA International 2010 for these events:

  • The North American Conference in Dearborn, Michigan, USA. (21st - 23rd June).
  • The European Conference at Swissotel in Düsseldorf, Germany (10th November)
ATS's position in the Manufacturing Execution Systems market is reflected in the work being completed by Mike James, Group Managing Director of ATS and Board Director of MESA EMEA Region. Peter van Vliet from SAP and Mike James are jointly responsible for the MESA Education Program being launched by MESA.

In a joint statement, James and van Vliet said: "One of MESA"s long term strategic objectives is met with the launch of the education program. We will use blended learning techniques (Web and Classroom based training and education) to meet the needs to the MESA community globally. The initiative has been taken to launch the program in Europe so that we can be sure multi-language courses are adopted. We are inviting third parties, including solution providers, software developers and universities to add education programs to the MESA Education Program. The program is module and role based. Thus allowing modules to be mixed for executives or operators."

The two will launch the MESA Education Program at these upcoming MESA events. ATS will also be showing live demonstrations of Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) at a Carlsberg brewery at these events.
