This example shows how EZ-MES is used for a fictional company that creates skateboards. You will configure EZ-MES to create a skateboard production flow. After the configuration you will use this flow to start tracking the production of skateboards. But before you can start this example, you need to have completed the following:

  • Have access to an EZ-MES system
  • If you don't have access you can request a 30 Day Trial.

Once you have access, you are ready to start this example.

It is a good idea to follow this skateboard example, because it will familiarize you with the menus and give you a general idea of what EZ-MES can do. After you finish the skateboard example, you can feel free to use our extensive help pages as needed.

Before you start, please note the following:

  • Trouble Shooting

    Whenever you run into an issue, you can always Contact us, use the built in Chat Feature to chat with us, or click the 'Help and Support' menu item in the top main menu.

  • Refresh Refresh24x24

    Because your trial is set up on a server with multiple trials running, It is possible that network traffic can slow down data updates on the Forms and Listboxes. If this happens, press the 'Refresh Button' to force an update. Most forms have a big 'Refresh' button and for Listboxes the refresh button can be found in the lower right corner. This should easily fix the issue.

  • Verbage

    Please understand that there is not a definitive standard in terms used for Manufacturing Execution Systems.  We may use the term 'Step Name', and another person might call it a 'Operation Name'.  If you have any confusion due to verbage, please do not hesitate to contact us.
