Manufacturing Systems Assessment

A Manufacturing Systems Assessment (MSA) is a combination onsite and depot-based engagement that will assist an InSource client with their decisions regarding what software based Manufacturing Systems would be most beneficial for them to add or modify over a period of time (e.g. 2 to 3 years).

Benefit to Customer

The MSA’s value to the client will be to build a roadmap, which will include a recommended, phased approach identifying each type of system to be implemented (e.g. Historian, OEE, MES, SPC, etc.), the estimated time-lines for each phase, an order of magnitude investment for each phase, and a return on investment estimate. The overall recommendation will most likely be a sitewide solution of integrated manufacturing systems. Each manufacturing system will have a direct relationship to clearly articulated client goals. 


The deliverable for this service offering will be an MSA document. The contents of the MSA will link its recommendations to well-defined and currently recognized or anticipated future challenges that were revealed during the onsite portion of the engagement. Finally, the MSA will list high-level system and functional requirements for each system recommended. View Success Simplified
