What is Manufacturing operations management (MOM)?
Manufacturing operations management (MOM) is a further development of the traditional MES. While MOM solutions, such as MES, focus on production processes, MOM goes beyond this and integrates, for example, detailed production planning, resource management (materials, equipment, labor), process and product reliability (quality), and manufacturing data analysis.
A MOM platform refers to complete business processes at the plant management level – in other words, the entire management of production processes. The primary goal is to convert big data (from different components on the shop floor) into smart data. MOM components understand the production context and interpret events and patterns that they find in data to be used by other systems. MOM solutions also deliver “intelligent” data that can be used in other business solutions and units.
