Manufacturing execution systems (MES) are computerized systems used in manufacturing to track and document the transformation of raw materials to finished goods. MES provides information that helps manufacturing decision makers understand how current conditions on the plant floor can be optimized to improve production output.
Redzone is not an MES. Redzone is the leader of new category of transformational software that is defined by analysts such as Gartner and LNS as “Connected Worker”, what we call Connected Workforce since we see the primary role of the technology as breaking down silos and having teams communicate and collaborate seamlessly and intentionally to solve the biggest issues that impact productivity. We are about the frontline employee and how they can contribute to productivity, throughput, OEE, and overall business health. While Redzone can integrate with an MES, we focus our technology and coaching on addressing the human element that makes manufacturing work.
