Business Intelligence

42Q provides real-time reports and alerts which makes executive-level visibility to operations a reality. Intuitive data visualizations enable executive and operations leadership to make informed decisions based on real-time information. Gain access to digital signage, Statistical Process Control (SPC), pre-defined and self-service configurable reports and dashboards.

Business System Connectivity

42Q can be easily integrated with enterprise systems such as Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), Warehouse Management Systems (WMS), Learning Management Systems (LMS) as well as homegrown applications using certified adapters or 42Q’s Application Programming Interfaces (APIs).

Asset Performance

Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) and Total Effective Equipment Performance (TEEP) are crucial metrics for any manufacturing organization seeking to maximize its Return on Net Assets. 42Q’s Asset Performance module gives you the visibility you need to decide where to focus improvement efforts & investments for the greatest ROI to the organization. By combining the Asset Performance and IIoT modules you can automatically the uptime/downtime signals from the asset.


42Q’s Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) module provides the tools your organization needs to manage your factory's assets. It allows you to manage maintenance work orders, step-by-step electronic checklists, calibrations and spare parts. In addition, the 42Q's CMMS enables you to perform corrective and preventative maintenance, calibrations and retain history that can be used to supplement your master records for regulatory and internal audit compliance. By using CMMS, you can digitize your maintenance operations and maximize your asset contributions.


The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) module enables manufacturers to connect a wide variety of devices and machines to the cloud, dramatically improving speed, data quality and eliminating human errors. Over 35,000 pieces of equipment are globally connected to 42Q using industry standard protocols. This level of connectivity enables a much higher level of test automation and fast sophisticated analysis of huge volumes of test and sensor data.


MES+ builds on the already robust traceability capabilities provided in MES101 by providing additional tools for manufacturers with more complex manufacturing assemblies or stringent regulatory standards.This module provides tracking and control for purchased serialized items, full inbound product traceability and kitting verification.
