Efficiency and quality standards are the classical topics that dominate the manufacturing industry. MPDV, a family owned business headquartered in Germany, is helping manufacturing companies to digitalize their manufacturing processes and to modernize their shop floor environment. Recently MPDV has been recognized as one of the “Top 10 MES Solution Providers – 2018” by Manufacturing Technology Insights. The award is a proof of the high product quality of MPDV’s Manufacturing Execution System (MES) HYDRA.
“We are proud to receive this award. It is a tribute to what we’ve done in the last 40 years in the manufacturing area”, says Stefan Loelkes, Chief Sales Officer at MPDV USA in Chicago.
HYDRA the modular structured MES by MPDV, features an extensive functional range and meets all requirements stated in the ISA95 and 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 configuration 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 companies that use an MES system like HYDRA become reactive and therefore remain competitive – especially looking at Industry 4.0.
Growth, growth, growth
For many years MPDV has been driving forward its steady double-digit growth. Worldwide more than 420 employees work at eleven locations in Germany, China, Malaysia, Switzerland, Singapore and the USA. Last year, the group’s turnover was 60 million euros.
