The motto of HANNOVER MESSE 2018, “Integrated Industry – Connect & Collaborate”, pinpoints the dedication of the world’s leading industrial trade fair to advancing the most talked-about topic in recent years as an internationally renowned forum for the latest networked, self-organizing factory solutions. The Manufacturing Execution System (MES) experts at MPDV Mikrolab GmbH have also played their part over the years, forming an almost integral part of HANNOVER MESSE. With its MES HYDRA and recently launched platform solution (MIP), the company is continuing to drive forward the networking and collaboration of different areas within a business.
Among the MES applications on show this year, the focus is on functions for production lines and manual workstations for high-variant series manufacturing, including graphic process modeling. MPDV is also exhibiting innovative developments in mobile data capture, optimized planning methods and a wide range of new functions designed to increase the efficiency of everyday production and thus help pave the way toward the smart factory of the future.
With its cutting-edge Manufacturing Integration Platform, MPDV has broadened its sights from focusing exclusively on manufacturers with extensive IT resources to include system integrators and machinery manufacturers. The MIP equips companies with an ecosystem that offers the benefits of both standard functions and customized applications for systematic data analysis and production control. All in all, this represents a ground-breaking advance into the next generation of manufacturing IT.
