MES Architect, Analyst and Consultant



As a professional engineer, automation/information systems designer and consultant, my driving interest is to assist manufacturing companies to apply appropriate new technology toward business advantage. If you are responsible for production or operations, you know, it is a real software and solutions jungle out there. As an early adapter of manufacturing execution systems (MES), an extensive background in automation, and knowledge of what is available today, from bar code readers to production reports, I can share experience and perspective, providing options and alternatives based on several projects with some great companies. If you need help with your manufacturing technology strategy or implementation? Please reach out to me directly at 610 952-1576, or drop me a line at Walt.Cholawsky@towardzero.com
