un HYDRA Intro

Solution Description

HYDRA is - as a typical example of the Manufacturing Execution System (MES) - synonymous with vertical integration between the production and enterprise management levels, bridging the gap between a technology-oriented machine and equipment platform and a more business-oriented world of enterprise systems (ERP).

As an integrated modular system solution for manufacturing, human resources and quality management, HYDRA not only provides the necessary flow of information, but enables the information to be acquired and evaluated from many different perspectives and delivered to managers and production planners at the touch of a button. HYDRA is the best solution with a range of benefits to streamline production monitoring and control activities:

  • interface between common ERP, HR and TQM systems,
  • interface between machines, equipment and measuring tools,
  • simple configuration and customization of functions,
  • on-line data acquisition and processing,
  • industry-standard solutions,
  • integrated system concept,
  • modular structure.
