Manufacturing Software Solutions
42Q is a full-featured, cloud-based MES solution developed by manufacturers for manufacturers. Our cloud-based solution accelerates time to value, increases uptime, lowers cost, and reduces risk compared to on-premise systems. 42Q’s architecture is accessible, reliable, scalable, and secure.
Customers pay a recurring monthly fee based on their actual usage of 42Q.
Start your digital factory journey in just a few weeks with our 90-day Proof of Concept (POC) offering. Our solutions can be rapidly deployed and evaluated, with low risk at a fixed price. Fast implementation is part of our DNA.
42Q can be easily integrated with ERP systems such as SAP, Oracle and NetSuite using 42Q’s certified adapters, and to other ERP systems using 42Q’s Xchange Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). Our solution enables seamless transfer of work orders from ERP, automated move transactions based on shop floor activity, processing completions and corresponding consumption of material.
Rapidly connect existing and new devices to 42Q using industry standard protocols. Over 35,000 pieces of equipment are globally connected to 42Q helping manufacturers to automate data capture, improving the volume and quality of the data, and enabling Industry 4.0.
Track & Trace Genealogy
Component level traceability and complete system genealogy are vital quality records, especially for regulated industries including medical, automotive and aerospace. 42Q provides the ultimate device history record solution, tracking all components, product changes, repairs and upgrades. With 42Q, all device history records are online and in the cloud. If a product comes back to the factory for a repair or upgrade, all of this information is automatically appended to the electronic device history record. Being able to quickly query and sort hundreds of thousands of device history records during a regulatory audit is invaluable, and 42Q makes this easy. Rich data capture technology collects each product’s genealogy and reports its status in real-time.
With 42Q, manufacturers can access global visibility of production operations and quality KPIs for multiple locations, from anywhere in the world. Proven comprehensive dashboards and analytics are available to help you see, manage and optimize your operations at production line, plant or global level.

Transforming Their Businesses
Weir Minerals Reduces Manufacturing Lead Times by up to 30%
Weir Minerals, a part of the Weir Group plc, is a global market leader in the supply of engineered solutions and aftermarket products to the mining industry. Their customers require fast order fulfillment lead times, which are met by manufacturing products as quickly as possible within their 12 core manufacturing plants.
42Q Enables Production Readiness to Double the Volume at Comet’s Penang Facility
Comet’s facility in Penang, Malaysia needed to double the production volume of matching networks within a period of six months. While the manufacturing process itself could support the increase, the manual data collection process had reached the limits of its capability. The company needed to increase efficiency, improve quality, enhance traceability and wanted a single source of truth for all manufacturing data. They decided to implement a Manufacturing Execution System (MES) and eliminate all spreadsheet and paper based processes. They also wanted the system to seamlessly integrate with their ERP system and a variety of manufacturing equipment.
Cloud MES Supports Sophisticated Automation in a High Speed, Highly-Regulated Manufacturing Environment
A global medical device manufacturer had been producing complex Class II medical devices for years, using 42Q as their MES. Now they faced the challenge of manufacturing high-volume Class III medical devices with complex, fully automated production lines. They feared that implementing advanced, high-volume automation using 42Q MES would require significant factory downtime. The new production lines required a high level of sophisticated automation and a manufacturing execution system that supported and seamlessly integrated with such systems.
Digital Factory Transformation with 35,000 Pieces of Manufacturing Equipment Connected in the Cloud
Sanmina manufactures 250 million products per year. More of a challenge is that there are over 200,000 different top-level assemblies produced each year for 700 different OEM customers with up to 20,000 forecast changes per week. The OEMs operate in diverse industries including telecommunications, enterprise computing & storage, industrial and clean technology. A significant amount of production is for medical, aerospace and automotive products with strict regulatory requirements. The existing on-premise MES required significant maintenance and upgrade effort from the IT and operations teams. It was also limited in its ability to manage supply chains beyond the walls of each factory, and was not well suited for factory automation and other IIoT initiatives.
