Mark Satink, General Manager of AVEVA Distributor Wonderware Benelux, said, “The Model-Driven MES offering is our solution for a Manufacturing Execution System at production companies that want to step into the Industry 4.0 era to become a truly smart factory with optimal automatized and paperless workflows. We need knowledgeable partners that have the necessary skill to integrate our solution.

Model-Driven MES is a processcentric approach to the digital transformation of best practices for reuse, sustainable standardization, and continuous improvement in plant and multi-site manufacturing operations. AVEVA’s Model-Driven MES approach combines the traditional benefits of a manufacturing execution system with modern digital workflow management technology to bring people, organizations, and processes together for increased efficiency as well as for capturing work processes and operational procedures in digital workflows and related user experience configurations (models).
As a supplier, AVEVA has chosen to focus primarily on developing, and delivering the software product portfolio including service and support. Delivering projects with their software products is reserved for these elite system integrators. This allows all parties to do what they do best.
Erwin Pouwels, Strategic Partner Director of ICT Netherlands, said, “We are proud to be part of AVEVA’s worldwide Practice Partner Program as one of only three partners in the Benelux. ICT is a major player in the European technology solutions market. We have already realized several large projects with AVEVA MES. In addition, we have a large group of expert engineers who have extensive domain knowledge, mainly in the Food, Chemical, Pharma and Water market segments. Thanks to this intensive partnership with AVEVA, our customers will benefit from the advantages of Model-Driven MES.”
