Process manufacturing software, Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES), Lot Traceability, Batch Production

Process manufacturing is concerned with the use of Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES), such as those used in the chemical, pharmaceutical, food & beverage, biotechnology and Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) environments. The key point to define process manufacturing is that once the raw ingredients or formulas have been used and mixed they cannot be returned back to their original individual state. In other words, once the product has been constructed the individual ingredients cannot be distilled and extracted back out again.
