New product release features

Infor MES system supports manufacturers in meeting their challenges, across discrete and process industries, with an application designed for operators first, and continuously evolving to improve their competitive advantage.

Standard integrations with Infor CloudSuites
These out-of-the-box integrations accelerate time-to-value to deliver accurate inventory data in real-time and improve traceability.

  • Inventory: Bi-directional inventory integrations with Infor MES are now available for Infor CloudSuites (LN and M3) to manage, consume and create inventory (finished and semi-finished) in MES. 
  • Assembly orders: CloudSuite IE and CloudSuite Automotive users now benefit from the standard bi-directional integration to execute Line Station orders as planned in ERP.

Gen AI
In this release, the MES system introduces Gen AI to further improve decision making:

  • Instant analysis of manufacturing data grid.
  • Daily email updates sent to your inbox about important changes or abnormalities in manufacturing operations.
  • The solution can be tailored to suit your specific needs.

Improving quality and reducing waste with the MES system
This release brings three enhancements:

  • For roll, sheet and cable manufacturing, roll maps track defects across layers and distances.
  • For operations with by-products of a primary manufacturing process, Infor MES enables the creation of by-products as fully traceable inventory. 
  • When quality control requires quality sampling, the MES solution enables operators to take and label samples from the production line for analysis in the lab, streamlining the process and enhancing traceability.
