Work in process. Optimize your process with our MES. Seamlessly and in real time

Limitless possibilities: Whether in the process itself or in the entire production line, whether in the processing of data or in the elimination of errors that occur. The SAP-based Manufacturing Platform from abat is the key to optimal production management.

Our system adapts to your processes and not the other way around.
Think Smart is not only possible with our MES, it is a matter of course.

The key features of our solution at a glance

Paperless manufacturing

PLUS based on SAP enables the user to create modern, workstation-specific visualizations for industrial touchscreens and handhelds from a variety of widgets. This reduces resource requirements and helps to optimize your processes. For example, product-related instructions can be made available at the work step level at all locations on the shop floor. In addition, our visual shop floor management provides a comprehensive data overview of individual orders. This helps your workers plan the next steps in advance and allows them to respond flexibly to unexpected changes in the production workflow.

We also offer mobile data collection, so that product-related shop floor data can be collected where the data is generated - directly at the product.

Workflow management for flexible business processes

The core of our solution is based on a service-oriented architecture and enables the mapping of interrelated business processes from a large number of individual services. These can be triggered by any event, such as production, and executed automatically. Existing modules in the system can be used to implement or optimize new business processes, enabling simple and rapid adaptation, even across production sites.

This allows you to respond quickly to changes in your manufacturing processes or supply chain.

Consistent inline quality management

Our end-to-end defect tracking enables you to achieve sustainable quality assurance.
In addition to the actual type-dependent defect description, the system also records the reasons for the defect and the corrections.

This ensures traceability and transparency at all times, allowing you to optimize your processes. Based on the recorded data, you can easily create defect statistics that support your quality management in identifying defect hot spots and deriving appropriate actions.

Out-of-the-box shop floor data supply

Our SAP-based PLUS ensures smooth, product-related data supply to your shop floor. The structure and origin of the information required on the shop floor can be individually configured in a specially developed user interface. The data is filled in on a product-specific basis, depending on the data request from the store floor. In this way, you can ensure a successful integration of your data from the ERP via our MES into your existing shop floor.

High-frequency manufacturing scenarios

In a manufacturing environment with a large number of production units and a high work cycle, a large number of events occur that need to be used to trigger business processes. As a powerful complement to the SAP product portfolio, our MES enables efficient, resource-efficient downstream processing of events.

Message queuing has been developed for this purpose. Among other things, this enables you to master bidirectional plant communication with equally high demands on quantity structure and performance.

In addition, our powerful and configurable message logging helps you analyze business processes while making them completely transparent and traceable.

„Digital twin“

Our intelligent MES platform enables the clean separation of transactional data (orders and their characteristics) and operational data in a separate, lean data model. In addition, lot management is provided to manage, display and process lot sizes >1.

Production data is captured on the "digital twins" of the orders or lots, which represent the existing physical objects within the production. This allows the physical world to be visualized and monitored for lot sizes 1 to n as a real-time digital image of production. In addition, comparisons of the actual world to the target specifications can be easily made.

The physical objects in production can be identified by any number of configurable information carriers (e.g. barcode or RFID) and appropriate data or work steps can be displayed or recorded.

In addition, configurable out-of-the-box logging capabilities are provided for traceability, tracking and status monitoring of jobs and parts.
