Model for integrating Six Sigma in Manufacturing Execution System in industrial production environment
Manufacturing and assembly organizations today and strategically in the following years will put main focus and investment on the implementation of optimization tasks and traceability systems, to be
Manufacturing Execution Systems: The Next Level of Automated Control or of Shop-Floor Support?
It is found that MES’ main role is the creation and maintenance of digital twins of products, which closely resembles work related to computer-aided engineering (CAE) systems and work in the sphere of MES will therefore increasingly resemble engineering work.
Manufacturing Execution System State-Of-The-Art: Its Evolution and Dynamism Focused on Industry 4.0
This chapter will expose an outline of the state-of-the-art about MES, its implications in the manufacturing processes, and its transformation as a dynamic productive system, because sometimes it is used as a tool for quality management.
Today manufacturing units face several challenges, such as the growing complexity of their processes and supply networks, cost pressures, increasing customer expectations for quality, lead time, and

A taxonomy for characterizing manufacturing execution systems is proposed and how they can benefit from the recent developments of Industry 4.0 is discussed.
Manufacturing Execution Systems for the Food and Beverage Industry: A Model-Driven Approach
An approach for the automatic MES generation according to the MDE concept provides MES functions that are relevant to the food and beverage manufacturing processes primarily and consists of necessary phases to cover the whole engineering process of the MES.
Contribuição do manufacturing execution system na execução de prioridades competitivas em empresas de manufatura
The aim of this paper is to analyze the results that the implementation of an information system type MES (Manufacturing Execution System) can bring to manufacturing companies. The research method
A method to align functionalities of a manufacturing execution system with competitive priorities
Purpose The purpose of this paper is to align the implementation of the manufacturing execution systems (MES) functionalities with the manufacturing competitive dimensions of two companies of the


What Engineering Has in Common With Manufacturing and Why It Matters
The argument is that in team-design activities, people wait on each other for decisions, and software development is remarkably similar to manufacturing once the authors notice decisions as the product that moves through a network of people.
CODEMINE: Building a Software Development Data Analytics Platform at Microsoft
This article outlines the process Microsoft has gone through developing CODEMINE--a software development data analytics platform for collecting and analyzing engineering process data and its constraints, and pivotal organizational and technical choices.
A cost-benefit framework for making architectural decisions in a business context
A model derived from analyzing actual projects undertaken at Vistaprint Corporation is presented, derived from an analysis of effort tracked against modifications to specific software components before and after a significant architectural transformation to the subsystem housing those components.
Managing technical debt in software-reliant systems
It is argued that the software engineering research community has an opportunity to study and improve the technical debt metaphor and can offer software engineers a foundation for managing such trade-offs based on models of their economic impacts.
Software Process Models and Analysis on Failure of Software Development Projects
Discussion is done on current process models and analysis on failure of software development, which shows the need of new research.
A case-study on using an Automated In-process Software Engineering Measurement and Analysis system in an industrial environment
A case-study on the adoption and long-term usage of an automated system for measurement and analysis in a company focusing on the adopted process and the related challenges the authors encountered.
A Metrics Suite for Object Oriented Design
This research addresses the needs for software measures in object-orientation design through the development and implementation of a new suite of metrics for OO design, and suggests ways in which managers may use these metrics for process improvement.
Applied Software Measurement: Global Analysis of Productivity and Quality
Applied Software Measurement, Third Edition details how to deploy a cost-effective and pragmatic analysis strategy, and how to use function points and baselines, implement benchmarks and tracking systems, and perform efficiency tests.
A Decision-Support System Approach to Economics-Driven Modularity Evaluation
Integrating the Architecture Tradeoff Analysis Method (ATAM) with the Cost Benefit Analysis Method (CBAM)
This technical note reports on a proposal to integrate the SE ATAM and SEl CBAM, which takes the architectural decision analysis done during the ATAM arid and helps make it part of a strategic roadmap for software design and evolution.
