We are getting closer and closer to Expoquimia, and this sector is starting to stand out among solutions and success stories. Today we bring a project developed through a MES Solution for the chemical industry, which achieved the optimisation of productivity and brought technological intelligence to decision-making in the plant, achieving an improvement in production.


This project was developed for a company that manufactures chemical specialities and is made up of four large differentiated areas: Performance Materials, Food Processing Aids, Additives and Adhesives. Through them, it provides a worldwide service and coverage to a wide range of customers in the industrial sector. Many of its products are nowadays leaders in the international market.


As such a large company, it had general challenges and needs to help optimise productivity:

  • Real-time production analysis.
  • Reduction of production costs.
  • Streamline decision making by workstation.
  • Shift production control.
  • Advanced production analytics


After carrying out a diagnosis and identifying the needs, a MES solution was recommended.
MES is a system that achieves the development of solutions for the management of intelligent production. Therefore, it can adapt to the needs of any type of company; this is how INNOVA IT proposed to develop this project to achieve the optimisation of productivity by providing technological intelligence to decision-making in the plant and thus achieve an improvement in production.

The MES product we used was:
