Planned. Tracked. Automated. Analysed. Optimised. Understood.

LYNQ is reinventing MES (manufacturing execution system) software tailored to chemical manufacturers and chemical production, including chemical parts and chemical OEM manufacturers.

LYNQ MES ensures chemical manufacturers maintain a competitive advantage in a highly regulated and complex industry by operating in an environmentally responsible manner.


MES in the chemical industry.

MES enhances process efficiency, product quality, and regulatory compliance. It provides real-time visibility, data-driven decision-making, and integration with enterprise systems, enabling chemical manufacturers to optimise production operations and drive continuous improvement.

  • Improve efficiency.
  • Reduce costs.
  • Minimise loss.

The chemical industry plays a vital role in producing chemicals that serve as raw materials, intermediates, or end products. Chemical manufacturing is at the root of all other manufacturing activities. With it being energy-intensive, costly and having a high carbon footprint, with petrochemicals the highest of any sector, even the smallest cost savings and efficiency improvements can have a huge impact.

On average, an chemical manufacturer of 50 resources (employees plus machines) could save $28,000 per month by using LYNQ MES. ROI calculator >>

Key features.

  1. Advanced planning and scheduling.

    Control complex production schedules, auto-schedule production, allocate resources for optimum productive hours and track the performance of your entire manufacturing operation against production targets. Advanced planning and data analysis tools for the chemical industry. Plan >>

  2. Data collection.

    Collect data on the production line, how efficiently it is performing and identify where losses are occurring. Effective shop-floor data capture software enables a manufacturer to know exactly what is happening, in real-time, for end-to-end traceability of raw materials, components and assembly, improving defect detection and quality control at every step.  Track >>

  3. Automate production.

    With automatic data capture from machines, standardised workflows, accelerated business processes and smart quality control. Access and report on manufacturing data in the click of a button to streamline operations, work as productively as possible and reduce manual intervention. Automate >>

  4. Analyse data.

    Gain intelligent insight into your chemical manufacturing data. Know exactly what is happening at every stage of production and be able to use this data to make process improvements; saving time and increasing production. Build reports with ease and view data dashboards on operations via any connected device. Analyse >>

  5. Optimise manufacturing.

    Gain tools to communicate more effectively via instant messaging. Move away from paper based systems with online jobs, online schedules and a plan that is accessible by everyone via laptops or tablets. Identify and address issues promptly with automatic alerts and notifications, connecting shop-floor employees with management. Optimise >>

Digital transformation and its effect on workers.

Digital transformation and its effect on workers.

As the division of labour between employees and “machines” is being redefined by digitalisation, it has implications for the working environment, work organisation and health & safety. Examples include mobile working, flexible hours, data protection and performance monitoring. The physical introduction of new technologies and new software into production is a key component – so the tracking ability of manufacturing execution systems will be at the heart of this.

As chemical manufacturers digitise further, several benefits can be realised with the help of MES. Within Data Collection, the warn and prevent controls can avoid over-production, and can warn of operations that start out of sequence. Batch and volume controls can be aggregated and viewed.

What is Digital Transformation?
Climate change.

Climate change.

Chemical manufacturing is arguably the biggest carbon emitter in the industry. But the industry demands a fair and balanced transition towards decarbonisation. It is seeking options that enable companies to recover and re-use chemical components or to use more sustainable starting materials, such as biomass and organic waste. And industrial biotechnology is a key advance in this area.

Such changes make chemical manufacturing more complex with more stock variation, making MES vital in organising complex formulations and varying batch sizes.

Moving Towards Greener Manufacturing
Innovation in chemical processes.

Innovation in chemical processes.

There is pressure to perfect new refining and manufacturing processes. Polymer recycling has become big business and recycling hubs are growing in number. Other examples include bio-ethylene oxide facilities, reducing the use of hazardous chemicals in these processes, and formulations for making plastic from seaweed that recycles into organic waste – all help strengthen modern advanced supply chains. With new, greener materials and formulations and multiple international regulations, chemicals are becoming more complex. Features like Definition Management, Scheduling and Execution Management within MES help automate the running of such complex requirements.

Challenge Series: How do we automate our factory?
People, technology and actionable information.

People, technology and actionable information.

Productivity can only be converted from the correct data. Transforming data into actionable information requires the right technologies and the right people. These technologies include systems with analytical and visualisation capabilities that enable predictive manufacturing, technical problem solving, process design and hazard analysis, environmental impact mitigation as well as energy efficiency and safety.

As with Innovation in the processes (above), the amount of and type of data being created now, is increasing the complexity of chemical manufacturing. A big, robust, and multi-featured MES solution will measure the right data in the right place and reveal wastage, excess stock, staff and capex utilisation, and more.

Making Sense of the Data

“Our customers are happier because they are getting things on time. We have increased transparency into what the schedule is. Everything is getting better.”
