With "MES Compendium – Perfect MES Solutions based on HYDRA", Springer now publishes a new textbook on the subject Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES). The English edition will be available soon. You can already order the book directly from the publisher or use one of the common online bookselling platforms (ISBN 978-3-662-549827, 59.99 EUR). The author, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jürgen Kletti, company founder and CEO of MPDV, confirms that the international demand is increasing: "Shortly after having published the German HYDRA Guidebook in 2012, we were soon swamped with ques-tions, if an English version also existed." Since the end of last year, a Chinese version of the book has also been available.
In the MES Compendium, Prof. Kletti and Rainer Deisenroth explain by means of practical use cases how a modern MES works and how a manufacturing company can benefit from the various functions. The authors illustrate these topics using exemplary images and screenshots from the MES HYDRA by MPDV. Deisenroth adds: "MES is attracting so much interest in all industrial regions of the world that more and more textbooks are published on this subject. The MES Compendium is unique as it pro-vides readers with detailed information on a field-proven product."

Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) support production companies to improve efficiencies in their production processes, increase productivity and thus to secure or enhance their ability to com-pete. A state-of-the-art MES puts companies in the position to record and evaluate data along the complete value-added chain in real-time. People in charge can therefore react instantly to unforeseen events in the daily production routine and put in suitable measures. The MES supports on all levels short-term and far-reaching decisions by providing a reliable data basis.
HYDRA, the modular structured MES by MPDV, features an extensive functional range and meets all requirements stated in the VDI guideline 5600. Individual HYDRA applications based on a central MES database can be combined without the use of interfaces. Thus, HYDRA guarantees a 360-degree view on all resources in production and can incorporate overlapping processes. Powerful tools for con-figuration and customization ensure that HYDRA can be modified in order to cater for company and industry specific requirements. HYDRA can be integrated into existing IT landscapes and is used as a link between production (shop floor) and the management level (e.g. ERP system). Production compa-nies are particular reactive using an MES system like HYDRA and therefore remain competitive – es-pecially looking at Industry 4.0.
