Collaborative manufacturing execution system (c-MES) is very important for manufacturing enterprises to realize informatization under the networked manufacturing environment. Production characteristics, typical production flow and collaborative management requirements of multi-workshop production in discrete manufacturing enterprise is analyzed. An architecture oriented to discrete manufacturing enterprises of c-MES is put forward. Main functions of c-MES and key technologies to realize c-MES are analyzed. Finally some system interfaces are introduced by a case study.
