Why low-code

The problem with traditional solutions

Traditional Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) were developed for a different era, before the age of IoT and advanced inter-connectivity. As technology moves forward, the need for change has become more and more apparent - either MES and MOM technologies have to adapt to include application development, configurability, better connectivity and integration, or we need new tools for the same challenges. Luckily we already have the perfect tool - Mendix low-code.

Low-code is perfectly suited to shop-floor applications, offering a faster and more agile solution. We've worked with companies in a wide range of industries to implement Mendix to their shop floor, covering everything from pure MES functionalities to warehouse management, plant maintenance, quality management and beyond.

This will be a sexy quote from Ayoub Azzouz at ETEX - "If we had known Apyx and the Mendix low-code platform one year ago, we probably wouldn’t have started a classical MES project"

The benefits of low-code

Leading manufacturers around the world are adopting low-code to improve their MES and automate processes with ease, getting the job done quicker than ever with better results for business, IT, and end-users. But what's so great about low-code when applied to manufacturing? Here are a few of our favourite benefits:

  • Co-create proactive, contextual and personalised applications
  • Digitalise workflows across OT and IT
  • Enhance factory automation initiatives & support field operations teams
  • Run apps on any device, online and offline, in the cloud and on-premise
  • Fast and flexible development thanks to the micro-service-app-approach
