ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) and MES (Manufacturing Execution System) are two types of software used to manage company activities, However, each focuses on a different area of the company's organization with specific purposes.

Main differences between ERP and MES

The ERP is designed to manage the entire company, integrating company processes and functions such as finance, accounting, supplies, sales and supply chain management. Its main purpose is to provide a panoramic view of the company and optimize its processes across the board.

The MES is specifically aimed at managing and executing production operations within a factory. Its focus is on monitoring production in real time, collecting machine data and controlling production operations.


Integrating a management software with the MES

The integration between MES and ERP enables a two-way exchange of information, therefore offering numerous advantages: the ERP is designed to integrate with various company systems, including the MES, CRM (Customer Relationship Management), SCM (Supply Chain Management) and others. It can serve as a central system for coordinating the entire company and facilitate the exchange of information between the various departments. The MES can be integrated with the ERP to share production data, production planning and information on production resources.
