Why use EZ-MES?
The central core of the EZ-MES Manufacturing Execution Software has a very flexible model for manufacturing operations. This enables you to model virtually any kind of manufacturing process. Making it possible for you to effectively control and track your production processes and to comply to industry quality standards.
Be able to control, track and analyze your manufacturing processes
EZ-MES can track individual parts, lots, and batches. Beside tracking your production it includes:
- BOM (Billing of Materials) Management
- Configuration Management
- Document Control
- Extensive Data Acquisition
- Inventory Control
- Product Genealogy
- Purchase Orders
- Scheduling production through Work Orders
- Statistical Analysis and SPC
Be able to interconnect with other tools and platforms
Extensibility is a software engineering and systems design principle where a software package takes future growth into consideration. Although the Manufacturing Execution System EZ-MES comes with a very extensive range of functions and feature, it also supports the seamless adding of specialized software extensions.
EZ-MES connector extensions can be used to connect this Manufacturing Execution System (MES) to:
- - Google Apps such as Google Calender, Docs, Drive and Sheets.
- - Business Apps such as DropBox, Jira, Office 365, SendGrid and Slack.
- - Analytics and Reporting Apps such as Adobe Analytics, Google Analytics, Google Data Studio, JMP, Tableau and Spotfire.
- - Data and Workflow Automation Apps such as AirTable, IFTTT, Integromat and Zapier.
The use of extensions turns EZ-MES into an open and flexible Manufacturing Execution System (MES) enabling future growth beyond the range of existing functions and features.
Be able to answer questions fast and efficiently
The EazyWorks team has an extensive background in high-tech manufacturing and knows that you want to have real time access to the status of your production in a simple and efficient way. Even if the production process can be complicated, many different products, large or small volume, the questions remain the same:
- Where is my stuff?
- How much stuff do we have?
- What happened to my stuff?
You can get the answers on your questions with just a couple of mouse-clicks. By getting these answers fast and efficiently based on real time data, will give you a tool to take the right decisions. What is the cost of a decision based on inaccurate or old data? The system will enable you to take the decisions that are needed to improve the bottom line. Decisions that:
- Optimize your resource utilization
- Increase your throughput
- Minimize your downtime and production delays
- Decrease your cost over-runs
- Reduce product variations and defects
- Increase the satisfaction of your customers
Be able to keep the total cost of ownership low
This is a combination of a couple of factors:
- Simple to use for operators, efficient data entry and no training required
- Simple to configure without loosing flexibility
- Simple to install and to maintain, which results in low IT overhead
- Unlimited number of users

Why is change imperative?
There are a number of reasons, some of which are likely to impact every manufacturing company:
- High more custom product mix is becoming a fact of life. This results in a complex mix of operations and an explosion of information.
- Time to market must shrink, you should be able to implement new products fast and handle engineering changes effectively.
- Government regulations are increasing, requiring manufacturers to keep more detailed records and genealogy for every product.
