Introduction: Pioneering Sustainable Manufacturing with 42Q

In the era of digital transformation, sustainability has become a pivotal concern for manufacturers. 42Q, a Sanmina division, stands at the forefront of this revolution as the only full-featured, cloud-based Manufacturing Execution System (MES) hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS). This blog explores how 42Q leverages the power of cloud computing to enhance sustainability in manufacturing processes.

The Edge of Cloud-Based MES in Manufacturing

Transforming Operations with 42Q’s Cloud-Based MES

Research conducted by the international analyst firm 451 Research indicates that migrating on-premises workloads to AWS can significantly reduce the workload carbon footprint by at least 80%, a figure that can climb to an impressive 96% once AWS attains its 100% renewable energy goal by 2025. You can learn more about how workloads on AWS are helping enterprises meet their carbon neutral and sustainability targets here.

42Q’s cloud-based MES is built on the AWS cloud so that 42Q customers can benefit from both the AWS cloud infrastructure sustainability commitments and the efficiencies and optimizations that support companies reaching carbon neutral commitments. By rapidly digitizing shop floor operations and improving efficiency and transparency across supply chains, 42Q MES eliminates on-premises hardware while empowering manufacturers with real-time visibility and actionable insights, essential for driving sustainable practices.

Achieving Sustainability Through AWS Integration

AWS’s focus on efficiency and renewable energy—aiming for 100% renewable energy usage by 2025—significantly contributes to reducing the carbon footprint of cloud-based operations. This was a significant factor in 42Q selecting AWS as its cloud partner and making 42Q the only fully featured cloud MES solution in the market today. This integration allows 42Q to offer a solution that not only optimizes manufacturing processes but also aligns with global sustainability goals.
