Manufacturing Execution Systems

Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES)

When it comes to “on the floor” operations, companies are looking to improve productivity and reduce the time it takes to process an order. Once operating as self-contained systems, Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) are often combined with ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) to develop a control system that helps managers guarantee the delivery of a quality product in a cost-effective and timely manner. Benefits include reduced errors, increased productivity, better quality control, compliance, and greater customer satisfaction.

Though HAL Systems, Inc. uses the same barcode and scanning technology as existing industry software packages, this is where similarities end. Unique solutions are built around specific needs of small to mid-sized businesses with a combination of Manufacturing and Warehouse Execution Systems. The configurable nature of HAL Systems software allows for integration of these systems, and drives the capability of companies to focus on internal operations as well as accurate tracking of materials. With browser-based architecture, costs are lowered as the needs of internal networks are reduced. In addition, less sophisticated devices are used.

Like a set of gears, HAL Systems solutions are established with core elements that work together. However, our pre-configured solutions are easily reworked without the need to rewrite additional custom software codes. This is good news for small to mid-sized businesses that are looking for a high value solution at a lower cost.

ERP Integration with System Interfaces

To broaden the view of manufacturing with accounting elements as it relates to warehouse execution systems, HAL Systems, Inc. finds value in ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) Integration using system interfaces. With a more complete picture of data, the planning, decision-making, and accuracy of business operations is greater, while saving time and cost.

Specifically, HAL Systems can establish interfaces with all ERP/Accounting systems, including legacy installations. Common types of data transferred through an ERP interface are sales order information, purchase order information, shipped order information, cycle count integration, and synchronization of master data. While system interfacing helps with workflow, accuracy, and traceability, it also enables businesses to establish a presence in eCommerce sites, where solid interaction is vital to meeting standards for order fulfillment.

Configurable solutions created by HAL Systems, Inc. give small to mid-sized businesses a competitive edge by extending the functionality of their existing systems through interfacing. In turn, maximum impact is generated through a browser-based software, allowing information to be shared immediately, in real time. Contact us today to find out how we can help.
