World Class Product

Reviewed 6 months ago

I am more than pleased with PICO MES. The team has impressed me with their responsiveness/support and commitment to tailoring the product to better meet customer needs. They few problems we've had with PICO have all been either addressed or fixed.

Pros

I love the user interface. I also love how easy it is to connect 3rd party smart tools. The change control feature makes it easy for me to oversee and track changes across the team.

Cons

The rollout time for some of the customizations/new features they committed to were much longer than expected. While they still followed through (and the features are great:), the lead time could have been more accurate. The traceability feature could be cleaned up -- you have to dig to find the information you need in lower-level processes that are consumed. The lagging on the operator build screen is also annoying.

Vendor response

Thanks for the feedback, Gabe! We've shared it with our product team.

PICO MES in Assembly Manufacturing

Reviewed 5 months ago

My overall experience has been good with PICO MES. It has helped our assembly department by providing visual instruction & details for builders while also tracking lots of data on builds for our engineers.

Pros

PICO MES allows our assembly operators to have the needed pictures & details to consistently build good product. Each detailed "work instruction" allows our builders to assemble product that they might have never built before with no additional help. We also use PICO MES to make quality/revision alerts, give instructions for sophisticated tooling, add shipping instructions, and provide any other details they might need to build the assembly. PICO has saved our assembly department lots of money in remakes and reworks. The PICO Techs are very helpful when trying to solve issues or do trial runs on new updates.

Cons

PICO MES is used by multiple customers, so it is customizable but to a certain point. The entire system can't be set up to fit a customer's unique needs if it won't help other customers.

Vendor response

Thanks for the feedback, Joe!

MES implementation for US manufacturing

Reviewed 5 months ago

Pico has been a wonderful addition to our manufacturing processes and has helped to elevate our production. There were some initial struggle points in the beginning but the Pico team has been very responsive and helpful in showing us how to best make use of the system or working toward developing new aspects of the software to meet our needs. We are quite happy choosing Pico and look forward to continuing to working with them.

Pros

Quick and easy to setup and expand Ability to integrate with multiple systems and equipment Fantastic customer service - always get a response within 24 hrs, usually within a few minutes Can utilize low-cost equipment at stations instead of needing a full PC

Cons

Server can become slow if multiple changes are waiting for approval Not easy to extract all data for analysis outside of Pico

Vendor response

Thanks, Michael!

Good MES, very helpful

Reviewed 6 months ago
Pros

Once set up, it is very helpful in use of construction of parts and keeping track of quality, especially after allowing the taking of pictures. The steps and tools are also very helpful.

Cons

Its sometimes a little difficult to set up the instructions, and control over who can edit the instructions vs who can commit the changes is not easily available. It basically has to the same person. Its also sometimes a little difficult to get data from the datacenter into a readable format if many of the parts are similar. Additionally, if we want something to count as "failed" if it fails to reach certain quality standards, it only tells you at the time, and I dont know of a way to set it up where it will tell you only at the end, or alert a manager of the failing without alerting the builder.
