MESA Africa (Manufacturing Enterprise Solutions Association) is the African Chapter of MESA International which is a worldwide not-for-profit community of manufacturing companies, information technology hardware and software suppliers, system integrators, consulting service providers, analysts, editors, academics and students. The combined purpose is to improve business results and production operations through optimized application and implementation of information technology and best management practices. MESA Africa’s efforts are focused on helping the manufacturing community to use information technology to provide real-time visibility into the production process.
Further, MESA Africa is committed to connecting that visibility to create business results, achieving such real value chain objectives such as lean manufacturing, collaborative supply chain management, quality and regulatory compliance, asset performance management, and product lifecycle management.
MESA Africa provides a variety of events that work together to help manufacturers:
– Better understand what is possible in terms of information technology to improve profitability, business value, agility, and customer satisfaction
– Engage “best practices” to see what other manufacturers have done to achieve measurable success
– Approach investment decisions in technology with more confidence
– Learn to improve the deployment of new technology
