MESA Smart Manufacturing Community: Manufacturing Operations Software

MESA Smart Manufacturing Community: Manufacturing Operations Software

Wednesday, January 10, 2024 (11:00 AM - 12:00 PM) (EST)


Come share your experiences, stories, questions, and what you have learned in a safe, non-commercial environment. We seek to understand the state-of-the market, understand what companies have done that has or has not worked, documenting questions that MESA and the community can help answer. Overall, the goal is to accelerate each participant’s learning and progress toward Smart Manufacturing. 

Topic: Manufacturing Operating Systems – Do we NEED another acronym?

The term MOS (Manufacturing Operating Systems) has started to creep into the lexicon of manufacturing systems. We have seen this terminology adopted by vendors previously identified as:

  • Maintenance management systems
  • Connected Factory Worker systems
  • Manufacturing connectivity platforms


  • What are Manufacturing Operations Systems?
  • Do they represent something new, or just a renaming of functions that already exist?
  • Are they a solution looking for a problem, or a capability that provides value not available in traditional MES/MOM/MRP, etc.
  • What has been your experience with them?
