    Abstract

    In dynamic operation environment, the manufacturing companies and their networks have to rapidly react to changes and disturbances. In such environment efficient information management is crucial. This paper presents a LeanMES concept, which aims to provide the right information at the right place at the right time and in a right format, and this way to support the production managers, planners and shop floor operators in their daily activities. The main elements in the concept are the common language, LeanMES standards subset, and modular LeanMES services located in the LeanMES Service Layer. LeanMES concept facilitates both vertical and horizontal integration. Vertical integration refers to interoperability and information sharing within organization, between business and manufacturing level IT-systems and machines. Horizontal integration refers to fluent information exchange and visibility in production network during order-delivery process. This paper introduces the architecture of the LeanMES concept and gives few examples of the services currently under development.
