Digitization and automation are revolutionizing manufacturing worldwide. Yet rather than replacing humans as some have feared, the most innovative technologies are actually enhancing workers’ capabilities as decision-makers and data managers. One innovation in particular is uniquely designed to equip modern manufacturers for efficiency and success: the MasterControl Manufacturing Excellence™ software solution, which is now available to manufacturers anywhere in the world and in 10 different languages.

Manufacturing Excellence enables manufacturers to create dynamic connections between critical systems, data sources, processes and people across the enterprise. This integrated approach gives manufacturers a holistic view of production and quality data.
“Over the past decade, the manufacturing industry has adopted software systems to better manage complex equipment, processes, data and planning. Unfortunately, these systems are often disconnected and still rely on paper in some form,” said MasterControl EVP of Marketing and Global Partnerships Sara Bresee. “To remain competitive in an age of data-driven intelligence and smart manufacturing, manufacturers must successfully digitally transform, integrate siloed systems and eliminate inefficient and insecure paper-based and hybrid processes. We believe Manufacturing Excellence is the tool to help them do just that.”
Recognizing manufacturers’ need for improved production precision, efficiency and quality, MasterControl first launched Manufacturing Excellence in the U.S. in 2019. Fifty companies have since implemented the solution and are now reaping benefits such as:
“Like many manufacturers, we’ve struggled to overcome persistent production documentation errors and rising manufacturing costs,” said Robin Joyner, system administrator at Wellington Foods. “However, after implementing the MasterControl Manufacturing Excellence solution, we experienced a 90% decrease in data input errors, which allowed us to accelerate production record execution and product releases to grow our business more efficiently.”
Other customers have seen a 50% reduction in the amount of time employees spend focused on production documentation within three months of going live with the solution. Those efficiencies are allowing workers to focus on their core competencies instead of paperwork.
The ultimate aim of the Manufacturing Excellence solution is to help manufacturers establish production records and processes that are completely paperless, errorless and frictionless. It also extends a manufacturer’s digital edge to the shop floor and eliminates the three most severe issues that commonly plague data: insufficient visibility, entry accuracy and integrity flaws.
Customers that implement the solution are realizing immediate and quantifiable improvements in key performance areas upon deployment.
“By preventing documentation issues in real time to minimize error corrections, we mitigate the need for deviations and rework, and also strengthen our compliance efforts,” said Cory Robinson, director of quality at Legacy Pharmaceutical Packaging. “The MasterControl Manufacturing Excellence solution enables us to save time by ensuring data integrity the first time, which has improved our overall quality performance and positively impacted the customer experience across our entire production life cycle.”
The solution is designed to enable manufacturers to effectively wield data that helps them actualize a measurable and scalable impact on operational performance and product quality. Manufacturing Excellence makes it possible for manufacturers to:
The following advanced MasterControl tools are included in the Manufacturing Excellence solution:
