Become a key resource in developing Arla MES (Manufacturing Execution System) applications

The Arla MES Platform is installed in various versions on more than 40 dairy sites across Europe to enable daily execution of global SAP ERP production orders.

The MES Team aims to be in control with the area to support all sites with strong standards for MES interfacing to PLC/SCADA and DCS Systems. Our end users on the dairies meet the MES platform through Javascript frontend applications hosted on a SAP MII server.
