The US glass and glass product industry encompasses more than 1,500 businesses, which together generate $23 billion each year. A further 580 companies are involved in the production of ceramics, generating $2 billion annually.

All of these companies, however, face similar obstacles as they strive to maximize productivity and efficiency levels.

Non-conventional methods
Glass and ceramic production environments differ greatly from traditional manufacturing factories; machines are replaced by intensive firing and moulding processes.

Health and safety concerns
The nature of glass-making can make it dangerous, with workers constantly exposed to high temperatures. Regulations must be stringent.

Sustainability pressures
High-temperature production methods are energy-intensive, and carbon emissions are a constant concern for company bosses.

Increased competition
Recent environmental pressures have caused production costs to rise, making it difficult for firms to compete internationally.

“Smart Manager MOM/MES is a significant part of our new production planning process. It has given us the ability to easily schedule products and move production around if we need to rearrange based on demand. It also allows us to see exactly where each of our production facilities is on the production schedule, including individual lines. It has sped up the planning process, eliminated our manual schedules and given us much-improved visibility of the overall production schedule.”
