Being competitive in manufacturing today is ever more problematic and therefore production management and real time visibility is a key element to guarantee an optimal output.

The ongoing pressure in manufacturing requires companies to change their structure and move to a more versatile supply chain management to fulfil the market demand, still keeping necessary profits whilst improving quality, therefore the capacity is required to monitor and change in real time the supply chain, still optimising all the operations in the plant and keeping the right plan.

The integration of all components, ensuring optimal quality and production efficiency across manufacturing facilities is an essential and companies need partners who understand the challenges facing manufacturing industries.

ZI-ARGUS use Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) to Transform Industrial Production Operations providing Manufacturing Intelligence throughout Plant and Enterprises.

We offer ISA 95-compliant solutions that can be easily understood and integrated into enterprises in areas such as ERP, LIMS, Finite Scheduling and Asset management compliant packages.

ZI-ARGUS can provide services to assist a manufacturer to select the appropriate MES solution that best responds to requirements - from warehousing through weighing, guided manufacturing, electronic batch record and batch review to quality control, shipping and more.

Our extensive team of experts are able to design systems to execute, control, monitor, analyze and improve processes, to meet the objectives of lean manufacturing.


  • Deploy advanced manufacturing execution systems
