Successful installation and commissioning of a MES system

ICT Group has successfully installed a Manufacturing Execution System (MES) for the revision of
wheelsets at the Dutch NS subsidiary (national railway company) NS Train Modernisation. NS Train Modernisation executes overhauls and repairs railway wheelsets. They not only overhaul the wheelsets of their own trains, but also those of other Dutch railway companies, such as Arriva, Synthus and Veolia.

Digital transformation through a MES system
In 2017 NS moved to a new factory building in the city of Haarlem, simultaneously renewing all its machinery. The relocation was accompanied by a digital transformation, which automated almost the entire overhaul process. In order to actuate the machines digitally and collect measuring and processing data, a MES system was called for. MES stands for Manufacturing Execution System and is the link between the customers question from the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system and the machines who have to deliver the product.

The project leader of the MES project at NS, is very pleased with the MES system. ‘NS had a few concerns at the start, but ICT completed this project successfully, with the right quality and within the agreed timeframe.’
