MES+ Production by Blackhawk Systems

MES+™ Production Module

Blackhawk provides numerous methods to both record and report shop floor production, while providing the needed real-time visibility. We enforce best business practices and customer requirements needed on the shop floor.

The MES Production Client is our part and container labeling workhorse. Through highly configurable, user-friendly touch screens, we provide the capability to print on-demand customer container labels. We also provide the ability to produce part identification labels where needed. These part labels can be used to scan parts into a container, and when the standard pack is reached, the required container label is automatically printed.

In addition to the Production Client label printing abilities, we also record scrap parts, non-conforming parts (rejects), and downtime.
