Recognizing the costs associated with the delivery of MES, the ongoing scarcity of strong MES resources and the challenges with retaining this type of person, ESP successfully developed a model to deliver MBRs more efficiently with improved quality and consistency through a blend of on-site and off-site work for various stages of a project.
MBR Factory is a methodology where the majority of MBR modelling is carried out by a dedicated ESP team sitting off-site.
The key drivers behind this are:
- Decrease cost while increasing quality: MES projects have become complex and costly. If executed correctly, the MBR Factory model offers control and opportunity to simplify and standardize, reducing cost and improving quality of outputs.
- Find highly qualified resources: Utilize highly specialist MES resources with minimum travel & living time and expense burdens. Conventional site work does not always attract the best resources.
- Life cycle support that is affordable: Establish a core team to support the MES system life cycle instead of providing supplemental resources who are gone once the project is over.
- Deliver on time & within budget: Fixing scope under the MBR Factory model enables these essential requirements to be met.
This model is currently being used to implement concurrent multi-site rollouts across a number of countries.
