MES software solutions for the Green Energy industry

 

Key challenges facing the Green Energy industry 

Green Energy technologies, such as wind energy, PV (photovoltaic), and energy storage continue year on year to grow their contribution to the global energy mix. 
 
Challenges as a manufacturer in the Green Energy industry include:
  • Rising demand means increasing volume whilst maintaining the highest quality standards and minimising warranty claims
  • With price pressures, due to intensifying competition, manufacturing operations must be more efficient
  • Technological changes give the opportunity to introduce new manufacturing processes and equipment
  • Green Energy products are expected to have a long life, full traceability is required to ensure you can track down the source of any faults or claims

How can Lighthouse Systems MES help you?

Shopfloor-Online MES software provides you with real-time visibility and control on all your manufacturing processes at the same time as driving up quality standards and control.
