Interview with Jos Hensen

MES in the ’food’: What is Manufacturing Execution System and what do you need to know about it?

“My passion has always been at the interface between IT and production processes, so it makes sense that I now give advice about MES. As an employee in the food industry I already saw the opportunities of integral automation in the 1980s, the machines in the factory were usually not linked. Then the term MES or ‘Manufacturing Execution System’ was also invented, before that it was still called Computer Integrated Manufacturing.”

From his company Greywise, Jos Hensen helps industrial companies with MES or ‘ Manufacturing Execution System ‘, his many years of experience in the ‘food’ sector gives his specialty focus: “I like to work where I can provide added value because I know the processes.”
