Definition

MES are at the heart of CIM. The simplest model of CIM has MES as the middle ground between ERP systems and individual machine and automation controls ERP systems handle financial functions, customer orders and send production requests to the factory floor. MES provide overall control and management of the factory floor, and provide updated information the ERP. (Semiconductor International 1997)
