Performix, Inc. provides a suite of Manufacturing Execution System (MES) solutions for SAP Manufacturing clients in the Pharmaceutical and Process industry verticals. By providing industry focused, certified-composite xApps that extend SAP to the shop floor for manufacturing execution; Performix accelerates manufacturing visibility and control while minimizing data redundancy and integration challenges from the enterprise to the shop floor.
Unlike traditional MES solutions where there is significant functionality overlap with the existing back-end ERP, Laboratory Information Systems (LIMS) and Process Historians; Performix xMES® solutions leverage SAP as the core of the Manufacturing IT ecosystem and completes the MES solution between the enterprise and the shop floor.
Performix was founded with a charter to develop state-of-the-art solutions and products in the MES space. Knowing that competitive players have traditionally been present in this market space, Performix differentiates from these competitors on two dimensions:
- Scope: Performix xMES® Suite of solutions focus only on the Execution aspect of MES and does not attempt to replicate any functionality existing in other enterprise systems. This not only helps us extend the reach of the enterprise systems like SAP, but also greatly reduces deployment time through avoiding rework.
- Features: Performix xMES® Suite focuses on three important solutions (xRecipe™, xMES®, and xBatch™) required by our core industry verticals. This enables our producs to be efficiently deployed as we strive towards the vision of an ‘out of the box’ MES solution.
