What is Epicor Advanced MES?

Epicor Advanced MES, formerly known as Mattec, is a manufacturing execution system (MES) connecting your machines on the shop floor. As a computerized assistant tracking and documenting raw materials’ transformation into finished goods in real-time, it enables the management in manufacturing to make informed, effective decisions.

While it is out-of-the-box and highly configurable, you can enjoy its full extendability. That means Epicor Advanced MES’s implementation and extension can occur rapidly, minimizing production disruption and unexpected significant surcharges.

Epicor Advanced MES's Main Features

Epicor Advanced MES-Mattec-Customizable deployment

Customizable deployment

It often takes only weeks between roll-out and gaining real-time production and performance agility for your organization. Epicor Mattec makes it easy to get there, no matter how timeworn or modern, with machine interface units (MIUs), open connectivity protocol (OPC), programmable logic control (PLC), and personal computer (PC) interfaces.

Epicor Advanced MES-Mattec-Real-time Monitoring, Data, and Communication

Real-time Monitoring, Data, and Communication

The shop floor is a real-time environment, so your MES should also be real-time. Things happen and change instantly. Sometimes a machine was down just a few minutes more than you thought, or perhaps the scrap or part count is off— just a couple of pieces can mean the difference between a happy or frustrated customer. Real-time, automatic production, and process monitoring with Epicor Mattec keep your business on track and eliminate the ripple effect on customers and vendors. We’re there to help you re-connect the shop floor with 24x7x365 monitoring—data directly from the machine— and turn it into information for the shop and management, automatic notifications when and how you need them.

Epicor Advanced MES-Mattec-Comprehensive Production Picture

Comprehensive Production Picture

From the top floor to the shop floor, it’s essential to know the score every minute of every shift, every day of the year. That’s why Epicor built a powerful out-of-the-box reporting and analytics system and delivers it in easy-to-digest dials, graphs, and charts. Mattec scoreboards and displays empower front-line professionals to take action and make improvements instantly, without waiting for days or weeks to find out how they’re doing or if they face machine or tool problems. Maintenance, quality, and other operations stakeholders have facts to support their recommendations, and management has what they need to understand tradeoffs from every angle.

Epicor Advanced MES-Mattec-Effective Planning and Scheduling

Effective Planning and Scheduling

Does your production schedule ever change on-the-fly? Shift supervisors probably wrestle with it daily, even when things run smoothly. With the Epicor Mattec click-and-drag production schedule, you can switch instantly based on new requirements or watch the schedule update and adjust automatically based on actual machine speeds, production counts, equipment status, conditions, or job specifications. Epicor makes it easy to plan by showing line availability based on machine/part/tool compatibility, and the system offers you optimal plans based on prior part performance. What-if analysis combined with built-in machine capacity planning and labor and material forecasting makes Mattec the first choice in MES. You can look to Epicor Mattec to do all your production planning and scheduling or integrate it with any other MRP and/or ERP to enhance its powerful capabilities.

Compare Mattec vs. Kinetic MES

Are Mattec and Epicor Kinetic MES the same?

The short answer is no. They both are manufacturing execution systems but operate pretty distinctively.

Mattec or Epicor Advanced MES is a separate system configurable with Kinetic. Meanwhile, MES is one function module among numerous others within the comprehensive Kinetic ERP software.

Integrating the two creates a supreme manufacturing tool. It then automates all communications and empowers decision-making with the most accurate, real-time data.
