Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to understand the evolution of manufacturing execution systems (MES) in the digital transformation era. Theoretical propositions made on MES (based on literature survey) were empirically examined using three case studies in Danish companies. Findings gave an overview of Industry 4.0 ready MES and identified its role in factories of the future. It is a first attempt to analyze the concepts behind next-generation MES to give a primer on ‘MES as a digital twin’, via first iteration of results from cross-case synthesis of collected data. The paper also maps the current MES research pertaining to Industry 4.0 into key groups to highlight its significance in digital manufacturing.
