Why low-code

The problem with traditional manufacturing solutions

Traditional Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) were developed for a different era, before the age of IoT and advanced inter-connectivity. As technology moves forward, the need for change has become more and more apparent. Either MES and MOM technologies have to adapt to include application development, configurability, better connectivity and integration, or we need new tools for the same challenges. Luckily we already have the perfect platform - Mendix low-code.

Mendix is perfectly suited to build shop floor applications, offering a faster and more agile way of working. We've worked with companies in a wide range of industries to implement Mendix to their shop floor, covering everything from pure MES functionalities to warehouse management, plant maintenance, quality management and beyond.

The benefits of low-code

Leading manufacturers around the world are adopting low-code technology to improve and automate processes with ease, getting the job done quicker than ever with better results for business, IT, and end-users. But what's so great about low-code when applied to manufacturing? Here are a few of our favourite benefits:

  • Co-create contextual and personalised applications
  • Digitalize workflows across OT and IT
  • Enhance factory automation initiatives & support field operations teams
  • Run apps on any device, online and offline, in the cloud and on-premise
  • Fast and flexible development thanks to a microservices approach
