Software and Technology in E-Direct Products


Learn how Endress+Hauser’s ReadWin 2000 and FieldCare software improve numerous efficiencies.

A Complicated yet Beneficial Relationship

Software has had a long history with manufacturing, one that has been at times mutually beneficial and at times complicated. At the beginning, around the 1960s, companies were using software mainly for accounting and inventory management, which in the 1970s grew into materials requirements panning (MRP) software.

MRP software systems combined the billing of materials, inventory, and master production schedules in order to calculate accurate materials requirements. In the 1980s, these systems evolved into manufacturing resource planning (MRP II) software, which integrated capacity constraints and consolidated materials planning with factors such as finance, plants and facilities, and employees.

As numerous manufacturing processes became more integrated with automation, computer software became even more essential to the industry. It is now essential to incorporate software in a range of systems.
