The advantages of Manufacturing Execution Systems have been weel documented. One such advantage, reduced labour overheads, has been tested at an agile manufacturing facility to determine the extent of the capability. A review of literature is initially presented from which a hypothesis is developed. The methodology and research stages are then described, followed by the findings. The paper concludes with the results of the findings and the limitations of this research.
