20 MOM acronyms you need to know
30 July 2013
LNS Research has published a list of the most widely used acronyms in the manufacturing operations management (MOM) space and provided definitions for each.
APC – advanced process control provides closed-loop control in process industries to optimise for multiple variables like, energy, material cost, and pricing
BoM – bill of materials coordinates the components needed to manufacture a finished product
EMI – enterprise manufacturing intelligence enables the aggregation, analysis, and delivery of real-time actionable intelligence for production performance
EWI – electronic work instructions deliver product, quality, and engineering specifications to manufacturing
HACCP – hazard analysis and critical control points create an action plan for ensuring products are always in compliance without having to conduct 100 per cent finished product testing
IEM – industrial energy management connects the procurement, use, and analysis of energy with production performance
LIMS – laboratory information management system coordinates the activities of laboratory personnel and connects testing and sampling data with finished product data
MES – manufacturing execution systems deliver critical shop floor scheduling and shop floor traceability capabilities
MRP – manufacturing resource planning coordinates the needed asset, inventory, and human capital required to fulfil production forecasts
OEE – overall equipment effectiveness is a composite metric measuring the availability, efficiency, and quality of production assets
OI – operations intelligence is similar to EMI but can be extended to include other real-time areas of the value chain such as supply chain or service
OTS – operator training simulators prepare control room professionals to quickly and effectively deal with dangerous situations in controlled environments
RCM – reliability centred maintenance moves an organisation to become more predictive and collaborative rather than reactive and break-fix
RFID – radio frequency identification allows for traceability at the finished product level
SPC – statistical process control monitors and analyses real-time variations in production
SQC – statistical quality control is a specific use case of SPC for quality performance
TIS – tank inventory systems monitors the amount of ingredients in silos and other vessels and manages the flow from one batch process to the next.
