Research on MES Domain Analysis Driven by Ontology


Article Preview

Manufacturing Execution System (MES) links plan management and workshop control in an enterprise, which is an integrative management and control system of workshop production oriented to manufacturing process. To overcome the difficulties of traditional software development method, development of MES based on component is adopted to prompt development efficiency and performance of MES, which can be more reconstructing, reuse, expansion and integration, and MES domain analysis driven by ontology is investigated in detail. MES domain analysis driven by ontology is feasible and efficient through developing a pharmaceutics MES which applied in a pharmaceutics manufacturing factory.
