MES Solution Architect

management consulting, supply chain & operations, lot of experience, consultant

You’re a dynamic and motivated business professional with a passion for manufacturing processes. You’re a team player who likes taking up an active role in improvement projects. You thrive in both small and large project teams

You are energized by interactive workshops with C-level executives, middle management and shopfloor operators. You’re quick to understand business challenges and propose strategic (and technological) solutions to help improve manufacturing processes.  

You’re flexible and can handle the uncertainty our customers face in their business transformation journeys – you’re there to guide them into the right direction!

Who are we?

At delaware, we have a dedicated Management Consulting team that helps companies to transform beyond technology. We operate across industries and tackle the needs and challenges of different stakeholders, helping them to transform their function, their team, their strategy and ultimately, their business model. We leverage our expertise to improve business performance and grow world-class capabilities. 

As an MES solution architect, you will be joining our Manufacturing team, that advises companies on how to optimize their production environment and shopfloor activities. You will for example help companies to automate their factory using robotics or other technology. This is a growing practice within delaware, with lots of opportunities for you to shine in projects!  

Just so you know: delaware has its offices in Antwerp, Ghent, Kortrijk, Lummen, Liège and Wavre, but we also spend a lot of time working together with our customers on-site. 


If you are already part of #peopleofdelaware, we encourage moving up and around within the company. Do you think the open position might be a good fit for you? If so, feel free to chat with the recruiter to explore the possibilities!

What you will be doing?

You’ll have quite a diverse to-do list, if you ask us:


As an MES solution architect, you’ll visualize and map the customer’s production processes and discover where optimization opportunities arise.

You will architect the best possible solution for the customer's current and future needs, taking the customer's existing IT landscape into account and complementing this with additional commercial or specific low-code applications.

You will maintain the architect role during the entire implementation stage of the project, work with internal and external implementation teams and align with the customer to adapt concepts or flows where needed.

During the entire project, you’ll make sure to keep an eye on the strategic focus points of the customer’s manufacturing department and guide them on their Industry 4.0 roadmap

Is there a match?

Do you have more than 4 years of experience in MES? To us, this means that you already took the lead in a typical MES project, either as a solution provider or in a manufacturing process engineering role.

Business knowledge on production processes is a definite must. Are you familiar with Lean and QRM concepts and have a clear vision on how to run and optimize production processes, making use of broader business and IT knowledge in logistical processes (e.g. WMS/ASRS systems)?

Are you able to listen to the customer’s needs, identify the business requirements, design the solution and communicate it to your team?

Do you have experience with writing functional specifications for software development?

Speaking of communication: Can you express yourself fluently in Dutch and English?

Do our company values appeal to you? We take care of our employees and customers, we are committed, enterprising and respectful, and we do everything based on a sense of positive team spirit.
