Lantek MES ManagerLantek says that with its MES Manager manufacturing execution system, engineers can upload a bill of materials for the products being manufactured including parts and subassemblies. The company claims that the full sequence of operations required for the manufacture of each part or subassembly is stored within the MES system.

The system can use standard touch screen computers or tablets (via Lantek MES Wos) for data capture and to provide operators with details of the sequence of manufacturing operations. Lantek says that links to the machines record start and finish times for cutting, while for other tasks employees can log on to jobs and operations recording the progress of each part around the workshop.
