MES for the Building & Construction Industry

MES software for the Building & Construction industry


Meet the key challenges of standardisation and continual change for the building & construction industry

The supply chain in the building and construction sector is quite diverse. It is directly affected by global and national economies but also by the impact of changes in consumer lifestyle and environmental and safety regulations.

These factors add up to a range of challenges in manufacturing data analytics:

  • Demand is variable, often driven by demand cycles in the economy, driving a need for flexibility
  • The requirement to standardise operations and enforce best practice
  • Global competition puts pressure on costs, enhancing the need to compete on innovation and customer service excellence to create a differentiation
  • The need to quickly introduce new products, technology and production processes
