gloTermMES

Manufacturing Execution System (MES) is a control system for managing and monitoring work-in-process on a factory floor. An MES keeps track of all manufacturing information in real time, receiving up-to-the-minute data from robots, machine monitors and employees. Although manufacturing execution systems used to operate as self-contained systems, they are increasingly being integrated with enterprise resource planning (ERP) software suites. The goal of a manufacturing execution system is to improve productivity and reduce cycle-time, the total time to produce an order. By integrating an MES with ERP software, factory managers can be proactive about ensuring the delivery of quality products in a timely, cost-effective manner. -TechTarget

termSynsmodular architecture

This refers to an architecture type that allows you to add and remove pieces (modules) to change the functionality, instead of installing a different piece of software for each possible configuration. We say that Ignition has a modular architecture because you can pick and choose which modules you want and ignore the rest.

A modular architecture sometimes includes the ability to add and remove functionality without stopping the software. This is referred to as a "hot swap," and is built into Ignition.
