MPDV’s IIoT-enabled MES Platform for Discrete Industries
According to Frost & Sullivan, the HYDRA MES platform is production-ready to scale to any additional IIoT-based device and is backed by a robust server framework. During IAS 2016 in Shanghai, MPDV received the Frost & Sullivan 2016 Best Practice award for Customer Value Leadership.
Based on its recent analysis of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)-based Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) market for discrete manufacturing, Frost & Sullivan recognizes MPDV Mikrolab GmbH (MPDV) with the 2016 Global Award for Customer Value Leadership. MPDV’s strategy of leveraging IIoT-based technology has resulted in a service-oriented architecture (SOA)-based HYDRA MES platform, which can house the rising number of IIoT service functionalities to support the shop floor. It is proving to be a popular choice across discrete industries across the world.
"MPDV, through its HYDRA platform, has been able to guide customers toward higher production efficiencies and enhanced energy management," noted Frost & Sullivan Research Manager Muthuraman ‘Ram’ Ramasamy. "These, along with its ability to gather different types of data, analyze it in context of the situation, and drive action continue to drive market adoption."
An outstandingly innovative feature of MPDV’s solution is an edge gateway scenario, which provides an unmatched, continuous interface between the IT cloud and edge cloud. The gateway also acts as a barrier between them to protect the edge cloud from bandwidth- and hardware-related problems. It can host security features to regulate the data flow between the IT cloud and private cloud. Data acquisition functionalities of HYDRA can be installed on the edge gateway providing real-time communication.
Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents the Global Award for Customer Value Leadership to the company that has demonstrated excellence in implementing strategies that proactively create value for its customers with a focus on improving the return on the investment that customers make in its services or products. The award recognizes the company's inordinate focus on augmenting the value that its customers receive, beyond simply good customer service, leading to improved customer retention and ultimately customer base expansion.
This is already the third Frost & Sullivan award MPDV has received. In 2010, the MES Experts were awarded for Best Practice and Product Excellence in European Discrete Manufacturing Execution and in 2011 for Best Practice and Customer Value Enhancement in Global Manufacturing Executions Systems. The 2016 award ceremony took place during IAS 2016 in Shanghai. proudly: “The award encourages us in our quest for global leadership in the MES market. Together with our MPDV colleagues in Europe, the US, Singapore and China we will continue to provide innovative and field-proven solutions for manufacturing companies worldwide.” said Prof. Dr.-Ing. Juergen Kletti upon accepting the award.
