Testimonials Customers

Partner for the Future
“In the evaluation process, we looked not only
for a partner for today, but for the next 10-15
years. If we could not see the software running
at a customer site nearby, it was disqualified.
We also looked for a strong future roadmap.
With Critical Manufacturing, we got all that
plus they manage the sub-contractor who
connects equipment to the MES.”

Visibility at all Times
“We really appreciate the FabLive element
of Critical’s MES. That is a way for people
to look at a big screen and see by color
whether each machine is running, idle, or
down. We can also see what is running in
each machine, whether the machine is
running to plan, and track orders and
status for production control.”
