"We needed an MES system that could deal with the changes we are making to the product and its processes but also one that can evolve with us as we enter the volume production phase at a later stage."
Ananda Mello-Costa, Quality Manager
Key challenges facing the Sustainable 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 Sustainable 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
