Rockwell named a Visionary in Gartner Magic Quadrant for MES

Rockwell Automation has announced it has been named as a Visionary for its FactoryTalk ProductionCentre and Plex Systems has been named as a Leader for its Smart Manufacturing Platform in the 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant evaluation of manufacturing execution systems (MES).

Rockwell believes the positioning in the 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant demonstrates fast-growing market reach and industry recognition for its overall MES portfolio.

“We welcome the recognition of Rockwell’s MES portfolio in the 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant report,” said Brian Shepherd, Rockwell Automation Senior Vice President, Software & Control, who noted the interpretation of MES functionality by Gartner now expands beyond the traditional definition to include all plant-level functionality between enterprise-level business operations, engineering systems and plant automation.

“We’re proud to see the Rockwell FactoryTalk solution recognised as a Visionary for its game-changing orchestration of MES functions,” Shepherd continued. “We believe the positioning of Plex as a Leader also showcases the impact and value the Smart Manufacturing Platform delivers to customers. We feel this recognition of Rockwell’s comprehensive portfolio by Gartner further demonstrates the synergy between these offerings.”

Rockwell’s operations management range includes Plex Systems and FactoryTalk ProductionCentre solutions with capabilities including MES, QMS, supply chain planning, production monitoring and asset performance management. Rockwell said FactoryTalk ProductionCentre offers the deep feature and functionality required by highly regulated industries, while Plex offers a single-instance, multi-tenant software as a service (SaaS) manufacturing platform.
