Manufacturing operation management (MOM)

Manufacturing operation management (MOM) is an approach of overseeing all aspects of the manufacturing process with a particular focus to increase efficiency.

MOM is the subsequent system to Manufacturing Execution System (MES) software, which expands focus from a single facility to the entire supply network and monitors a variety of aspects of the manufacturing process, including production capacity analysis, Work-in-Process (WIP), inventory turns and standard lead times.

There are numerous types of MOM software which can provide real-time information, metrics for situational or historical analysis or assist with compliance.
