WONDERWARE , a business unit of Invensys Systems, has appointed Claus Abildgren to the board of directors of the Manufacturing Enterprise Solutions Association (MESA) International.
Abildgren, who serves as program manager for Wonderware’s production and performance management software solutions, will serve as MESA’s “board member at large”.
A non-profit organisation, MESA promotes the exchange of best practices, strategies and innovations to achieve plant-floor execution excellence. MESA's industry events, symposiums and publications help manufacturers, systems integrators and vendors improve manufacturing operations and manufacturing quality. MESA offers practical solutions using manufacturing execution systems (MES) that include a combination of information, business, manufacturing and supply chain technologies.
Wonderware will facilitate the sharing of best practices from lessons learned throughout the last decade. Abildgren will support MESA’s goal of delivering technical strategies and knowledge to promote more effective implementations of MES. MES has witnessed a resurgence in interest recently due to the demand by manufacturers to link the factory floor with business management operations. By integrating these business processes, real-time information can be used to better manage production and related supply chain issues.
