42Q to Showcase Cloud MES Solutions at 2017 MESA International North American Conference

42Q to Present High ROI Digital Factory Transformation Case Studies

San Jose, Calif., May 4, 2017 – 42Q, a leading provider of cloud-based manufacturing execution systems (MES), today announced that the company will be participating at the 2017 Manufacturing Enterprise Solutions Association (MESA) International North American Conference, co-located within the Manufacturing & Technology (M&T) Conference & Expo. 42Q will host a booth (Booth 513) where subject-matter experts will showcase the company’s cloud-based MES and digital factory transformation solutions.

At the event, Srivats Ramaswami, CTO of 42Q will be presenting in a breakout session on Tuesday, May 9 at 9 a.m. (ET). During this session, Real-Time Process Control & Data Analytics in a High Volume “Smart Factory”, Ramaswami will review three advanced implementations of real time data analytics, closed loop process control and high volume “lights out” factory automation in production today.

“For decades, companies have used MES for factory management, data collection and control. While functionality has evolved over the years, innovation in MES has been largely stagnant,” said Ramaswami. “At 42Q, we are revolutionizing MES with a fully featured cloud solution, enabling companies to leverage MES at a fraction of the cost of traditional on-premise solutions. We are looking forward to showcasing actual customer deployments that generated real enterprise value in a short period of time.”

42Q solves key challenges that manufacturing organizations are facing, as shown in a recently released case study highlighting how a global medical device manufacturer feared that implementing advanced, high volume automation for a new Class III device would require significant factory downtime. The company was surprised to learn how well equipped 42Q was to handle the high transaction, automated production lines with full traceability and component verification. With 42Q, the company can upload, retrieve and process massive data sets from separate sources and transform that data into operational insight.

With robust and proven functionality, 42Q helps manufacturers easily cross traditional boundaries of automation, engineering, operations and IT. Currently deployed in more than 50 factories worldwide, 42Q’s proven, scalable solution allows organizations to eliminate the lengthy infrastructure acquisition and configuration process, and realize value in a few weeks instead of the months or years involved with a traditional MES.
