Critical Manufacturing, a company that is redefining the role of manufacturing execution systems (MES), has once again been recognized as a Leader by Gartner, Inc. in its 2022 Magic Quadrant for MES.

According to Gartner, "Leaders execute well against their current vision and are well positioned for tomorrow."

Critical Manufacturing delivers a highly sophisticated, fully integrated, modular MES solution. It includes Augmented Reality, Digital Twin, and extended MES functionality. A highly configurable solution, it is designed to resolve the complex operational challenges faced by modern manufacturers.

Additionally, Critical Manufacturing received the highest scores in 3 of the 4 use cases in the 2022 Critical Capabilities for Manufacturing Execution Systems and is ranked first among 19 vendors recognized in the research against the ‘Batch/Repetitive Flow Manufacturing’, ‘Complex Discrete Manufacturing’ and ‘Highly Regulated Industries” use cases.

Francisco Almada Lobo, Critical Manufacturing CEO, said: “This is the second consecutive year we have been named as a Leader in the Magic Quadrant and we are very proud of this achievement. Our customers see the value our MES solution delivers and the potential it offers for the future with its ability to harness future technologies and provide connectivity to handle the rapid pace and growth of data generated by IoT devices and equipment. The success we have seen with our MES has assisted us in building a strong partner and SI ecosystem.”

In the report, Gartner mentions that “MES solutions are a foundational building block of smart manufacturing strategies and digital business for manufacturers. MES technology is evolving and propelling the market in a new direction. By 2025, 60% of new MES solutions will be assembled by manufacturers or implementation providers using composable technology.”

Almada Lobo concluded: “Our MES has been designed from the ground up to provide flexibility and scalability. It is increasingly becoming an enterprise solution, with a single, standard MES that can be deployed across multiple sites. We continue to work to bring innovative solutions that will deliver the functionality manufacturers need to make them strong, resilient, and competitive into the future and accelerate their growth and transition towards the huge benefits offered by Industry 4.0.”
