Discrete Manufacturing

Discrete manufacturing processes produce individual parts, including their assembly, into a final product. Discrete manufacturing examples include automobiles, appliances, and consumer electronics.

Process Manufacturing

Process manufacturing is a production method that creates goods by combining supplies, ingredients, or raw materials using a formula or recipe. Industries that produce bulk goods, such as food and beverage, refined oil, gasoline, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, and plastics, use process manufacturing.

Batch Manufacturing

Batch production is associated with process manufacturing operations where produced goods are made by mixing or blending components in industries such as food, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, etc.


Why Do Industrial Production Managers Need MES Software?

When objectives fall through the cracks, production managers need support in making the right business decisions without losing efficiency. Let’s discuss how manufacturing execution system (MES) software can optimally implement and monitor production planning while keeping a pulse on the whole picture – all in real time.

MES on the Fuuz Platform becomes part of a connected ecosystem. And this connectivity raises its value beyond the traditional use as a machine monitoring app.

Fuuz MES Capabilities

Built on modern event-driven architecture, Fuuz MES simplifies your software environment, eliminating point solutions and middleware, so IT can focus on making apps that drive business initiatives.

Lower costs and increase profitability

Automate tasks like sending out new POs to suppliers for approval, updating customer invoices, or issuing credits as required — without human intervention.

Drive plant performance and revenue growth

Connect machines, equipment, people, production, processes, and more for a complete, real-time view of your production lifecycle, start to finish.

Enable continuous improvement of manufacturing workflows.

Embed Quality Assurance production processes to fix problems as they occur and use process monitoring to anticipate problems and prevent them before they occur.

3 Big Benefits of MES on the Fuuz Platform

You can use the Fuuz MES app right out of the box. There are too many benefits to list here. So let’s go with the top 3.

Fuuz customers find their implementation times are 5 to 7 times faster than other software. Here’s why. The endless combination of pre-built tools, platform features, and no-code drag-and-drop editors makes it possible for business and sales teams to create their own data visualization dashboards and documents, so your developers can focus on more complex, value-driven projects.


The Fuuz Platform is version-less. This means you can customize your MES solution but, unlike other cloud software, the Fuuz Platform will always reflect the current state of the customizations you’ve made. Siloed data and time-consuming software updates are a thing of the past. 


The Fuuz MES app allows users to configure their software solution exactly how they want it. And it has pre-built connectors that connect anything with everything else — people, processes, partners, machines and other software.

Fuuz MES: 7 Things You Need to Know

The Fuuz Platform and its pre-built MES app are revolutionary approaches to managing plant floor operations. Here are seven things you need to know about Fuuz MES before considering other outdated MES solutions. 

Fuuz MES Features

Fuuz MES supports mixed-mode manufacturing environments for co-products, by-products, recipe, batch and lot management. Manage your products, BOMs and manufacturing routings directly within the Fuuz MES app.

Production Setups allow you to view exactly what is being worked on at any point in time, in real time. Supervisors can also use Production Setups to monitor what every work station and/or operator is currently working on, and whether those processes are meeting or exceeding standards.

Unlike other software, Fuuz uses its own Application Program Interfaces (APIs) for a frictionless user experience. All updates happen in real-time, and all screens notify the user if something has changed. 

Some companies are workcenter-centric while others are staff- or operator-centric. Fuuz simplifies how work orders are generated with flexible, operation-specific dispatch screens.

Fuuz out-of-the-box MES supports product license plating, the ability to group and manage inventory in a container type the user defines. 

Lot traceability is automatic in Fuuz, and lot numbering can be based on either your in-house requirements or a customer’s requirements.

Fuuz MES also offers the granular traceability and quality control you need with lot management that shows where things are and where they came from. 

Fuuz production tracking helps you understand operational efficiency, capacity and resource utilization no matter what type of manufacturing method you use — even if you use multiple methods. 

And Fuuz is flexible too. User screens and operator dashboards are easy to personalize, providing the just-right level of interaction without distraction.

Augment basic MES with Production Monitoring and Process Monitoring to automate manual processes. Track your equipment modes and states from a user interface so your operators can make updates. Or use our Device Gateway tool to connect your industrial controls. No third-party applications are required!

You can use Fuuz to report your costs. Or Fuuz can push the information into another system, like your accounting software, payroll software, ERP or any other software you use. And MES on the Fuuz Platform comes with pre-built Connectors to most major software from QuickBooks to ADP to SalesForce and a whole lot more. Need a customer Connector? We can do that too!

If you have a product that is produced simultaneously with another or a product that generates a known output, Fuuz can help you with Product Setup and Configuration. 

You can use the Fuuz Platform tool Device Gateway to merge process data with production data for mass work orders. And Fuuz works with any machine-to-machine communication protocol such as Open Platform Communications (OPC), Message Queuing Telemetry Transport (MQTT) and ModBus.

The point is that you don’t need to purchase anything extra in order to use standard methods of integrating with industrial equipment.    

*OPC UA is the standard for machine-to-machine communication. It meets all requirements of the IEC61784-3 standards for security.

MES Calendar

Fuuz MES puts you in control of scheduling. Fuuz easily accommodates different rules that support both forward/finite scheduling, also known as Advanced Production Scheduling (APS), and backward/finite scheduling, giving you the ability to dynamically reprioritize or move jobs. There are numerous ways to do this, including the live/responsive Calendar view depicted above.

Track and analyze your OEE/OAE/TEEP and other important metrics with real-time information using an internet connection. You can also automate predictive quality and maintenance, forecasting when you’ll need to perform maintenance, purchase new tooling or change recipe settings.

If continuous production is your manufacturing process, this Fuuz MES feature allows you to merge process data with production data and (this is cool) incorporate Machine Learning into your processes to prevent unnecessary downtime.

Fuuz operator dashboards, control panels or Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs) are designed with complex operational workflows in mind. Fuuz screens work on any device, function within any process flow, and adapt to any department, workcenter or employee.

We’ve saved the best for last. Fuuz data collection screens don’t require retraining or complex configurations to work. That’s just one of the ways Fuuz delivers faster time to ROI for our customers.

MES on the Fuuz Platform becomes part of a connected ecosystem. And this connectivity raises its value beyond the traditional use as a plant floor monitoring app —  because Fuuz’s apps, tools, and platform solutions are adaptive. So when your business processes change, Fuuz changes too.
