A manufacturing execution system (MES) application, Merlin tracks manufacturing operations bidirectionally from the ERP work order to each machine’s detailed operations. It can connect to all machines on the shop floor using various protocols, MTConnect adapters or network connectivity devices. It measures capacity utilization and overall equipment effectiveness metrics, and automatically tracks details regarding every event at a machine.
