A scalable, flexible, MES framework solution for custom factory automation.


PEER FACTORY from The PEER Group is a collection of feature sets for building a custom factory automation solution, like a Manufacturing Execution System (MES). The software engineers combinde the feature sets to design custom solutions to meet unique manufacturing requirements for a custom factory automation solution.

PEER FACTORY is scalable–meaning you start with a simple data collection system for a single tool and grow it into a full-scale manufacturing IT system using the same common robust architecture. PEER FACTORY components will help reflect your expanding automation requirements.

PEER FACTORY combines the strengths of both enterprise and SCADA/HMI MES products while minimizing associated risks and costs. The proven, field-ready modules are deployed as required instead of being bundled with unwanted modules within a larger IT system. Building upon the core foundation of data collection and data management, functional modules are implemented easily and robustly. Configuration drives the data collection and distribution and the standard PEER FACTORY modules perform specific business functions to monitor or run your facility.
