South Korea based smart factory solution provider Miracom has selected Amazon Web Services (AWS) to power its Nexplant MESplus solution, the cloud computing services giant said in a statement.
Miracom now runs its production management system on AWS to boost manufacturing companies’ productivity and operational efficiency, as per the statement.
The manufacturing execution system (MES) for small and medium-sized businesses (SMB) provides Miracom’s customers with deeper visibility of their factory operations and a complete view across the entire manufacturing process, the statement said.
The process involves anything ranging from material input to production, quality, facilities control, to shipping. AWS capabilities’ inclusive of compute, containers, and database services lets Miracom provide solutions to over 300 customers in 20 countries.
Additionally, running on AWS allows Miracom to innovate new Nexplant MESplus features easily and quickly. For example, by using AWS, Miracom can add functions that automate manual operation and maintenance processes in weeks or deliver a cloud-based demonstration system for prospective customers.
Based on the success of Nexplant MESplus in South Korea, Miracom also plans to expand its services into international markets by using AWS’s global infrastructure, as demand for smart factories rises globally.
By using Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Miracom said it can offer reliable services to customers and rapidly scale compute power when manufacturing demand increases, such as during surges, inventory shortages, or recalls.
By using Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS), a service that helps customers to set up, operate, and scale a relational database in the cloud, Miracom can minimize database management time and focus on managing Nexplant MESplus.
“Running Nexplant MESplus on the cloud makes it easy for us to continuously and easily provide customers with critical updates and innovative new features, which is especially helpful for SMBs that face difficulties in securing investment and manpower,” Jongweon Lee, head of the Smart Factory Business Group at Miracom, said.
