Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) – 20 Years of Reporting

Date posted: November 21, 2011

I've been covering Manufacturing Execution Systems since helping to launch the Manufacturing Enterprise Solutions Association International in the mid-1990s. On that occasion, I wrote a supplement on the Association for the pages of Managing Automation (MA). Since then, I have written several dozen magazine features on MES for leading publications such Manufacturing Systems, Alchemy, Software Strategies, and Start.

During the past 20 years, I've had the pleasure of interviewing hundreds of leading MES industry executives, software engineers, and end users. I've also had the pleasure of serving as a copy writer and online content developer for a number of leading MES software vendors.

In 2011, I wrote the MES Buyer's Guide for MA's TechMatch Website. The MES Buyer's Guide provides a comprehensive look at the state of the Manufacturing Execution Systems as well as an overview of the key industry providers and their product offerings.
