Maturity-based Evaluation of Requirements for a Successful MES Implementation. The use of a Manufacturing Execution System (MES) can offer many advantages for companies, but the implementation often poses a great challenge. The determination of necessary requirements, their fulfilment by the company and their consideration in the implementation process are decisive for a successful implementation. In the following article, the development of a maturity-based method for the evaluation and improvement of the companyspecific fulfilment of the requirements of an MES implementation is presented.

To be able to meet the challenges of globalization, the optimization of internal transport is becoming increasingly important. Due to the further development, drones are an innovative material handling technology. The use of drones can be cost-efficient, especially for time-critical transport tasks. However, drones are characterized by a very low payload and very high operating costs. Therefore drones are in some cases more economical than conventional means of transport, but they do not offer an universal solution for all internal transport tasks.
