Abstract:Manufacturing execution systems (MES) are widely adopted by electronics manufacturing services (EMS) providers to optimize production activities from order launch to finished products. An MES system is integrated with ERP as well as machinery. Manufactures often lack a good understanding of MES functionalities and benefits that will become available after implementing an MES system. This makes justifying the investment in MES a hard task for managers. This paper intends to describe how small enterprises in the electronics manufacturing services (EMS) industry could benefit from implementing an MES system. According to the case study conducted at an SME in the EMS industry, quality management, document control and product tracking and genealogy are the most important functions for small EMS providers.
