MES and PROFINET
The integration of Automation Systems, Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is becoming more and more important for enterprise wide integrated information systems. While interfaces between MES and ERP have been defined within the IEC 62264, the definition of the interfaces between MES and the control / field level is still open.
Since the optimization of maintenance operations is an important task for many enterprises at process industries and discrete manufacturing industries the following guideline describes the interfaces from PROFINET devices and components to MES maintenance systems.
The scope of this document is mainly the definition and classification of the data to be exchanged between the devices and MES maintenance systems.
