Enterprises are seeking novel approaches to reduce cost in complying with regulations and requirements from original equipment manufacturers. Consequently, enterprises are investing in manufacturing execution system (MES) solutions for realizing these requirements. However, most of the MES solutions do not support processing of real-time process data acquired from shop floor for online monitoring and control of enterprise processes. Further, monitoring of enterprise processes can be classified into online tracking and passive tracing. In the contribution, a framework is envisaged for online tracking of enterprise processes based on MES concepts. This framework has been validated in an industrial scenario.
