The Challenges of Integrating Enterprise Resource Planning and Manufacturing Execution Systems
While enterprise applications solutions are moving closer to the plant floor, and plant-level systems are moving closer to enterprise planning application

automating manufacturing systems  and provide functionality for automating, monitoring, and controlling plant-floor operations. They also establish bidirectional data transmissions throughout the enterprise. These are all examples of how information technology, and specifically of production management, converge with plant automation. However, transactional enterprise applications have traditionally been ill-suited to managing the details of dynamic manufacturing processes in plants. From the aspect of data models, ERP systems target
