42Q, The Full Featured Cloud-Based MES

42Q is a complete MES platform provided as a SAAS solution and developed by manufacturers for manufacturers.  It is proven as the simplest way to accelerate digital factory transformation. The system can be deployed in a few weeks, significantly reducing risk, and accelerating time-to-value. 42Q provides full product traceability, route enforcement, cycle time, asset performance, defect & repair loop, electronic work instructions, serialization, and more. 42Q’s architecture is accessible, reliable, scalable, and secure.

Scalable, Rapid Deployment

42Q, recognized as having the fastest deployment in the industry, can be deployed in weeks without the need for additional hardware or IT staff.  Manufacturers can start small, selecting only the functionality they wish to implement at first, prove the concept and realize the benefits in their environment and then flexibly scale up in volume or functionality. This modular approach significantly reduces risk for manufacturers worldwide.

The Simplest Route to Factory Digital Transformation

42Q has been proven as the simplest route to factory digital transformation. Customers have increased efficiency and productivity, reduced rework and decreased work-in-process as a result of digitizing their manufacturing process. Devices and machines can be easily integrated with 42Q using a variety of different protocols. Product tracking, serialization, process enforcement and parametric data are managed in real-time improving quality, reducing errors and enabling rapid increases in production volume.

Global Real-Time Data Visibility

42Q provides real-time multi-plant data visibility from anywhere in the world. The platform offers easy-to-use interfaces for shop floor operators to collect data, including options like handheld scanners, wearables or RFID tags. Thousands of pieces of equipment can be connected to the system for automatic upload of data. 42Q integrates seamlessly with ERP, PLM and other IT systems to create one source of data. Configurable dashboards and reports allow manufacturers to rapidly turn huge volumes of manufacturing data into actionable management information at global, regional, plant, production line and manufacturing workstation levels.
