Project overview

In the trend of intelligent manufacturing, enterprises need to adopt advanced information technology into process control systems (PCS) and enterprise resource planning systems (ERP). Current manufacturing system lacks a connecting layer between these two. The function of MES is to join ERP with PCS, thus, the collected data can be effectively analyzed and used in the ERP system. The students will be deeply involved in the projects and learn the knowledge such as software programming, system modeling and simulation, prototyping design, etc.
