Mitsubishi Electric works closely with world-leading automotive manufacturers to create innovative product solutions with the latest technology and safety features. Focus is continually placed on leveraging success in industries such as renewable energy and material handling to apply new techniques for customers in the automotive industry. Through a unique automation concept called e-F@ctory that provides a direct connection to a Manufacturing Execution System (MES) or an Enterprise IT system, Mitsubishi Electric optimizes factory production providing tangible advantages and benefits. This is possible through the elimination of all middleware and gateway PCs to collect and report data, ultimately reducing the total cost of ownership.
