Version:  3.2_MES

Demo version

COAGO MES - Manufacturing Execution System for roll production and converting. The industry solution for manufacturing execution system (MES) and production data acquisition (PDA) for manufacturers, converters and finishers of films (foil), paper, cardboard, textile (textiles), nonwovens, composites, packaging, plastics industry, process industry and all web-, roll- and format-shaped products.

Industry 4.0 can be experienced with the industry solution COAGO MES from GRASS. This is because the system integrates the ERP worlds with the production and machine levels.

COAGO MES plans, controls and monitors the manufacturing processes as well as all manufacturing-related operations, such as quality management and logistics. All machines and subsystems are networked and technically integrated as part of digitization.

The COAGO Manufacturing Execution System makes the Internet of Things (IoT) possible in roll production and converting (films, paper, nonwovens, textiles). Like a hub in a wheel with many spokes, the ERP system and along the value chain in production, all machine data, process data, quality data and operating data are integrated. All machines and subsystems are networked and technically integrated. The data is available within a homogeneous solution for evaluations. These are the basis for continuous improvement processes, or CIP for short.

The introduction of COAGO MES significantly increases the transparency and efficiency of production. Machine efficiency, raw material efficiency and personnel efficiency as well as productivity are sustainably increased.

In addition, GRASS GmbH offers consulting services in the business area Lean Manufacturing for the target group of reel producers and the manufacturing industry. This includes seminars and workshops for project management and business process optimization, as well as support and assumption of responsibility for results in project management, project controlling, process analysis and business process optimization.
