Brock Solutions' Professional Associations

Beyond our many industry partnerships and vendor strategic alliances, Brock Solutions maintains professional affiliations with many key automation industry-leading organizations.

MESA Blue

Brock’s commitment to the MES space is further highlighted by our deep involvement with MESA (Manufacturing Enterprise Solutions Association), which is a global, not-for-profit association that focuses on improving operations management capabilities through the effective application of technology solutions and best practices.  MESA has 1000s of members that are end-users and solution providers representing global-leading companies from a cross-sector of industries.   MESA solution partners are dedicated to working together to deliver holistic automation technology solutions that provide significant return-on-investment while increasing overall manufacturing performance.  

In 2016, Brock Solutions has reached the highest status within MESA’s certification process as a “MESA-Recognized Business”. To achieve this status, our MOM/MES professionals have completed MESA’s most in-depth training programs, as well as committed our time and effort to the MESA community in a variety of working groups and technical activities.We believe that the combination of this educational dimension with our 25 years of practical, hands-on design and delivery of MES/MOM solutions gives Brock Solutions a valuable advantage as a System Integrator in the field of the real-time operational space.

Brock has been a member of MESA since 2007.  Brock’s co-CEO John Southcott served on the MESA Board of Directors from 2008 to 2010 and has served as Chairman of the International Board of Directors.  Brock’s Manufacturing Operations Management Practice Leader – Stephanie Mikelbrencis – is the current Chair of the MESA Americas Board, having been elected for the term April 1, 2015 to March 31, 2017.

ISPE ISPE (International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering) is the world's largest not-for-profit association dedicated to educating and advancing pharmaceutical manufacturing professionals and their industry (www.ispe.org). Brock contributes both white papers and formal presentations on automation and MES-related topics in annual ISPE forums.  Although primarily focused on the Pharmaceutical industry, participation in ISPE allows Brock to stay current on regulatory and validation requirements which are increasingly relevant for other industries we serve including Food & Beverage and Consumer Products.
AIST AIST (Association for Iron & Steel) Brock is a member of AIST, often contributing white papers and presentations on automation and real-time IT solutions to the Steel community.   The Steel industry has many of the same challenges we see in other industries, primarily around providing visibility into the organization so that operations are streamlined and the right information is available at the right time to the right people for effective decision making.  As such we are often asked to share our perspectives on how to design real-time solutions that deliver value to a steel manufacturer’s bottom line based on our experience in the real-time area.
IATA IATA (International Air Transit Association) Part of simplifying the business initiative, which is primarily IT executives from airlines and airports all over the world (93% of industry represented).  Brock is involved in 3 technical working groups and is an IATA Strategic Partner.
