Monitoring, Data, and Communication

The shop floor is a real-time environment—so your MES should be real-time too. 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 monitoring and process monitoring with Epicor Mattec keeps your business on-track, and eliminates the ripple effect to 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, and data to feed the rest of your Mattec system and your business.

Visibility, Reporting, and Analysis

From the “top floor to the shop floor”, it’s important 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 having to wait 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 in-hand to support their recommendations, and management has what they need to understand tradeoffs from every angle. Epicor Mattec MES delivers a comprehensive picture of production, from the top floor to the shop floor.
