Production management in SkyMes is the starting point for the realization of a project.
In this part of SkyMes, the structure of the company and the products manufactured are defined and managed. The company's structure primarily includes the records of resources such as Plants, Departments, Work Centers, Machines, Employees, Equipment, and so on, while the products that the company produces are described through production cycles and the bills of materials or semi-finished products necessary for production. Unlike the ERP system, where the item records are mainly for administrative purposes, in MES the item records must fully describe especially how this is produced.
