What is an MES System?
The MES (Manufacturing Execution System) is an information system for production management. It provides a range of functions, such as planning, machine data acquisition (MDA), production data acquisition (PDA), energy monitoring, process monitoring and alerting, maintenance, HR functions or traceability. All data that are generated during production are combined, processed and are made available to different users within and outside manufacturing.
In its capacity as a data hub, it integrates already existing IT systems that are used in production and, if necessary, supplies all IT systems involved with relevant data. Thus, the MES system becomes an important operative tool for your production.

What is a SCADA System?
SCADA (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition) is a system of software and hardware elements that allows industrial organizations to:
- Control industrial processes locally or at remote locations
- Monitor, gather, and process real-time data
- Directly interact with devices such as sensors, valves, pumps, motors, and more through human-machine interface (HMI) software
- Record events into a log file.
SCADA systems are crucial for industrial organizations since they help to maintain efficiency, process data for smarter decisions, and communicate system issues to help mitigate downtime.

What is a PLC?
The PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) is an industrial computer control system that continuously monitors the state of input devices and makes decisions based upon a custom program to control the state of output devices.
Almost any production line, machine function, or process can be greatly enhanced using this type of control system. However, the biggest benefit in using a PLC is the ability to change and replicate the operation or process while collecting and communicating vital information.
Another advantage of a PLC system is that it is modular. That is, you can mix and match the types of Input and Output devices to best suit your application.

What does software engineering mean?
Software engineers and computer programmers both develop software applications needed by working computers. The difference between the two positions lies in the responsibilities and the approach to the job. Software engineers use well-defined scientific principles and procedures to deliver an efficient and reliable software product.
Software engineering treats the approach to developing software as a formal process much like that found in traditional engineering.
Software engineering services include the entire range of life-cycle services (requirements, design, develop, test, implementation) necessary to develop and implement industrial IT systems.
