Manufacturing Execution System (MES/MRP)

ASCTrac® Build it better, make it faster with configurable MES system from ASC.

With the right tools at your disposal, possibility emerges. In manufacturing, that means a whole world of opportunity opens up, where yes becomes the answer to every question concerning what you can make or do in your operation.

ASC’s Manufacturing Execution  and Material Resource Planning solution (MES/MRP) gives you the capability to meet all of your manufacturing requirements. From full lot and serial number traceability, to exceeding FDA and pharmaceutical standards, to catching errors before they happen at the point of activity, your operation runs smoother and more efficient than ever.

Actual lot costing per manufactured lot/batch/serial number and proof of all QC actions, along with precise inventory and labor costing gives you true lean manufacturing in your operations. You will see a complete and accurate picture of your manufacturing enterprise for better, faster, easier decision-making.

Whether you build-to-order or build-to-stock or a mixture of both, ASC has carefully designed and developed manufacturing software with fully integrated modules for discrete and process manufacturing operations. Designed for easy set-up, you can visually review and plan all of your manufacturing lines with manufacturing constraints and orchestrate your entire manufacturing enterprise.

Manufacturing - Connect, Plan, Optimize, and Execute:

ASCTrac® MRP/MES is a very extensive manufacturing solution used to plan and execute many types of manufacturing.

Our MES system has modules for:

  • Production Work Orders
  • Shop Floor
  • Manufacturing Resource Planning (MRP) for materials and labor
  • Demand Forecasting
  • Visual production schedulers
  • Manufacturing dashboards
  • And more

There are also various connectors to: 

  • Real-time manufacturing PLC’s/IIoT
  • Automatic labeling systems
  • Warehouse control systems (WCS)
  • Pick-to-light systems, carousel systems

The picking of components for manufacturing consumption is just as mission critical as it is for finished goods, and the directed workflow for lot and serial numbers along with FIFO/FEFO controls (pharmaceutical grade) are all required for Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP).

Connect to Industrial Internet of Things (IIlT)

ASC has extensive experience in interfacing with industrial controls (since 1989 with PLC’s) and interfaces to connect virtually any external system to our distribution and planning systems for 100% accuracy and fulfillment.

We are currently updating and adding “Off-the-shelf” interfaces for many PLC/IIoT devices: for 1- Primary: MTConnect4, OPC UA, or Fanuc Focus, and several others…

If your PLC or machines machines support the items in list 1 above, we can connect to them. This will provide you with OEE dashboards and provide fully-integrated, real-time information to the ASCTrac® planning, manufacturing and shop-floor operations, and ultimately, to the financial system. All of this information can be visualized by supervisors in real time.

If your controllers or are in list 2 and 3, then inexpensive off-the-shelf industrial IIoT device(s) could be used to pull data from any machine that reports operation and/or part cycles.
