Redefining MES for the Next Generation of Manufacturers

"Demystifying Composability: Moving from MES Toward a Platform Approach"

Most MES were built in a time when the cloud wasn’t a thing and monolithic architectures were the norm. With today’s technology, the pains manufacturers have had to endure – the headaches of hard-coded customizations the disruption of months-long upgrades, and the lengthy end-user learning curves – are no longer necessary.

The 2023 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) continued to make it clear that MES Market is in a state of flux: “There is a fundamental technological shift taking place in the MES market, driven by evolving new technologies that challenge the MES status quo and driven by vendors with the agility and talent to accelerate the adoption of those technologies.”

In the report, Gartner describes the next phase involving “composable enterprise technology platforms, applications and processes”, yet we fear many still find the concept of “Composability” abstract and difficult to imagine in practice.

In this webinar, Tulip’s Head of Product and Ecosystem, Erik Mirandette, and Head of Customer Services, Gilad Langer, will explore the evolution of MES, the role of composability in unlocking resilience and innovation, and how manufacturers are using composability to drive value gradually and with less risk.

During this webinar, we discuss:

  • Why MES needs to evolve and what factors are pushing the market shift toward composability – with the changes discussed in the 2023 Gartner Magic Quadrant

  • What an MES implemented with a composable approach looks like (hint - it is more than no-code capabilities)

  • Examples of how composability enables manufacturers to create innovative solutions that leverage human-centered design, AI, and computer vision

  • How leading manufacturers implement and scale MES solutions rapidly with composability using Tulip’s Frontline Operations Platform

The manufacturing industry needs to evolve faster, and so should its technology. See how you can implement an MES of the future with a Frontline Operations Platform.
