MES Wizard is a tool to support MES project design.
This tool helps systematically to explore typical recurrent questions regarding the specification, engineering, implementation and subsequent system management. These questions are based on the functions defined in IEC 62264 and also take into account aspects of systems technology which are relevant to designing the required IT infrastructure. The user can individually extract the questions relevant to the case in hand and export them as a pdf document.
This tool is targeted at persons who are or will be entrusted with planning and operating MES solutions in the process industry. It aims to provide support
- in defining operational tasks in co-operation with interdisciplinary players within a company,
- in identifying the scope of functions of an MES solution for a given operational task, and
- in discussing and specifying general infrastructural requirements.
Given its clear and straightforward structure, this list of questions may also serve as an introduction into MES.
This tool complements worksheets NA 110 and NA 128. For additional explanations see NAMUR worksheet NA 155 (in preparation).
