8Sigma is an EU based company that is specialized in developing and implementing a software solution named 8Sigma MES (Manufacturing Execution System). Its agile and flexible team consists of IT experts who have more than 20 years of experience in developing and implementing software solutions in factories on five continents, including the world’s largest integrated aluminium complex.
As a software completely adjusted to Industry 4.0 and Internet of Things (IoT) concept, 8Sigma MES supports the digital transformation of factories of various scales and applies to all types of manufacturing industries.
MES is also known as Level 2 and Level 3 software solution and an important link between automation (SCADA and PLC systems) and ERP planning systems. It helps manufacturing companies to monitor all production phases: from the moment when raw material enters the plant until the moment when it is ready for delivery as a semi-product or final product.
With 8Sigma MES, the management of companies can get a quick, real-time and precise overview of everything that is happening to products through their life cycle. It enables companies to control the product quality by detecting downtime, bottlenecks and all other problems and their causes at an early stage of production processes. It also gives companies the possibility to resolve immediately the problems that occurred, to connect all departments involved in the production and to track energy consumption. All that supports management in increasing product quality and process efficiency, reducing costs and making crucial decisions that are important for reaching business goals.
In order to offer clients a complete service, 8Sigma also tightly cooperates with some of the European’s best experts in the field of metallurgy and industrial automation.
By providing services such as consulting in the manufacturing process improvement, custom development of MES solution in manufacturing plants, engineering services, and support for 3rd party MES, 8Sigma is capable to meet the most challenging demands of modern aluminium factories.
