MESA International adds member to board of directors

12/06/2005


Lake Forest, CA —Claus Abildgren, Wonderware ’s program manager for production and performance management software solutions, has joined the board of directors of the Manufacturing Enterprise Solutions Association International (MESA). Abildgren will serve as MESA’s “board member at large.” Wonderware is a business unit of Invensys Systems Inc.

MESA promotes the exchange of best practices, strategies, and innovations to achieve plant-floor execution excellence. As a board-member-at-large, Abildgren will support MESA’s goal of delivering technical strategies and knowledge to promote more effective implementations of MES (manufacturing execution systems). MES has reportedly experienced resurgence in interest recently as a result of demand by manufacturers to link the factory floor with business management operations.

Commenting on the appointment, DeAnn Gedyski, MESA’s executive director, said, “With the surge in demand for connecting the plant floor to the enterprise, Wonderware’s contributions provide an important resource to members focused on improving the health and agility of manufacturing production systems.”

Said Abildgren, “With MESA’s continuing leadership and growth of the MES industry, the board appointment provides Wonderware an opportunity to directly impact the evolution of production and performance management software solutions that include MES functionality. By integrating existing messaging and middleware systems, manufacturing organizations can preserve technology investments and retain existing infrastructure and IT strategies. They also can easily and cost-effectively update the top-level system architecture to accommodate for future requirements.”
