ERP Solutions for Manufacturers
Why use ERP Manufacturing Software Solutions?
Increased pressure to cut costs, international competition, ever increasing labor costs, and restricted credit or no credit has made it difficult, if not impossible, to be a manufacturer in today's economy. It was tough to begin with and then add the pressure of a global economic slowdown and suddenly there is more red ink than black.
It really does not matter if you are a process or discrete manufacturer. Whether you make to stock or make to order. You are going to have the same pressures. You need to reduce your operating expenses and optimize your resources in order to stay competitive.
How can we increase customer satisfaction or loyalty? How can we improve our partner and supplier relationships? How can we improve employee productivity now that we have reduced our work force? How can we be more responsive? Bottom line, how can we make it easier to work with and do business with our company?
There is always going to be errors when humans are involved. It is a fact of life. Reporting errors, incorrect or late shipments, time consuming tasks. How can we plan and improve our scheduling? Was our forecast information incorrect or did we just run the orders when they hit the fax machine? Which person actually knows what the production schedule is and will they be able to tell management if there is enough capacity to handle a rush order without making all the other orders late?
Okay, we shipped the order on time, but did it meet our quality control tests and by the way the customer needs a copy of our certificate and we do not know where the information is located. We are not even sure we are making our minimum profit on some orders.
We constantly struggle with warehouse and inventory control issues. We have seasonal demand. When was the last time the physical inventory matched the book inventory? We know how to figure out how many items to make for our customer orders, but we constantly guess for our stock orders.
Our communication with our customers and suppliers is weak. It takes a long time to execute a new business process. It would be nice if our system notified us about critical issues. We need better planning. We need automation and the efficiency it creates.
