Efforts to separate unequivocally substantial signs of versatile tools of manufacturing management are usually marked by a narrowed view of the field of their use. Similarly, it is so also in the case of specifying the functionality and position of MES (Manufacturing Execution Systems) in the hierarchy of information systems. Presentations generalising MES in this field do not always correspond with models that have a generic character. For that reason it appears useful to investigate the mentioned MES characteristics from a number of angles, and particularly in relation with the basic types of manufacturing systems.
