**A platform for factory control - from electric vehicles to aerospace, and

Pico MES is a fresh approach to factory operating systems and enables a
connected environment to limitless factory tools, capturing data for
visibility into the supply chain. Pico MES has migrated dozens of mid-sized
factories off of paper-based systems and helped improve product quality for
American factories in battery manufacturing, automotive, and aerospace. Pico
MES is designed by end users, for future end users.

We are a team of technical experts and humble learners that understand what it
takes to build a highly capable manufacturing line. We produce a web-based
product which allows manufacturing engineers and technicians to create and
manage their entire workflows within the factory. We also provide a
distributed hardware system for integrating the hundreds if not thousands of
devices on the factory floor.

Ultimately our goal is simple: we like to build stuff and we want to help
others build their products with a tool that meets their needs. And now we
need your help as we evolve and improve each and every day!
