In the present manufacturing paradigm, manufacturing execution systems (MESs) play a significant role in effective manufacturing management. Offered software solutions simultaneously close the gap between Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems and production equipment control or SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) applications. Current ERP systems usually contain modules for material management, accounting, human resource management and all other functions that support business operations. In the past years, the role of ERP has been extended to cross-organizational coordination. Nowadays, as optimization of production activities is increasingly topical, a cooperation of ERP and MES becomes a serious concern of manufacturing managers.
