The aim of this project is to study the Manufacturing Execution System (MES) and the future role that it would play in relation to Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM). MES has been developed and used in the semiconductor industry for over 20 years. The function of MES has been extended from simple WIP (work-in process) tracking to a complete shop floor information system.
