Brock Solutions will be hosting a webinar the topic of “What Goes Where?” for determining the most effective technologies for real-time operations systems. The webinar will focus on aligning the use of technology to bring measurable value to your organization.

We are often asked questions like: What function should reside in my MES system?  Should I do this in my controls layer or MES?  Doesn’t my ERP solution do this?

Many organizations are struggling internally with decisions around technology use in the real-time operations space for applications that impact manufacturing, operations, and the plant-floor environment. In trying to determine which technologies should be used to enable real-time operations, execution and reporting, there are an abundance of solutions to pick from, and often confusing terminology to decipher from solution providers and system integrators. Moreover, organizations are implementing or rolling out big Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) implementations and want to leverage this significant investment as much as possible across their enterprise.

During this webinar we will explore these topics and share practical examples to demystify what goes where (ERP, MES/MOM, Controls) to guide companies through the decision making process.

Co-presenters Greg Cantlon and John Southcott from Brock Solutions have been providing Consulting and Education around MES for the last several years, and are happy to share their perspectives during the webinar.  Greg is a Business Unit Leader at Brock and the lead on many large real-time operations programs, and John is Brock’s co-CEO and MESA’s past chair.  The webinar will be interactive and will allow time for questions and answers.
