Improve your manufacturing business performance from the shop floor to your bottom line!
Streamline your operations by automating manufacturing processes and gain greater visibility into all aspects of your operations from order entry to production, warehouse management, and delivery.
Provide customers with information they can count on. Increase the accuracy of promised orders and respond quickly to customer queries about order status and delivery.
Respond quickly to changing customer demands with agile manufacturing. Plan rush orders, make exceptions, and handle last-minute changes to your manufacturing processes with multiple planning options, tracking, and interactive action messages.
Open your business to trading partners around the clock. Using a Web browser, vendors can manage catalogs, enter drop shipment orders, and maintain delivery dates.
Growing businesses can take advantage of a simplified manufacturing foundation that includes visibility into work-in-process (WIP), support for order-by-order workflow, and the ability to implement additional functionality as business needs become more complex, including:
Bills of material (BOM)
Capacity requirements planning
Machine center allocation
Warehouse and inventory management
Automated Data Collection System (ADCS)
Integrate collaboration and communication with Dynamics NAV
Deliver a single, real-time view of data from multiple facilities and departments
Synchronize communication between engineering, manufacturing, and subcontractors
Optimize planning to minimize inventory while meeting customer requirements
Share information within your systems through the Web
Efficiently manage projects
Provide an accurate overview of project status
Track activities and resources at many levels of detail
Leverage knowledge and content from existing or prior projects
Deliver superior customer service
Gain a comprehensive view of customer information
Eliminate isolated silos of information
Create customer self-service opportunities
Coordinate multichannel communications with customers
Collaborate with customers on new product designs
Estimate and quote accurately
Provide accurate quotations based on a real-time view into operations
Align customer requirements with your capabilities
Record customer requirements accurately
Provide flexible production planning
Use data from the entire supply chain to respond effectively to changes and problems
Access data through familiar desktop tools
Support various manufacturing modes, such as engineer-to-order, make-to-order, make-to-stock, and mixed/hybrid
Maintaining efficient operations in today’s manufacturing environment isn’t easy, but putting into practice the principles of lean manufacturing can further hone your organization’s competitive edge. Typical manufacturing plants have multiple vendors, multiple interfaces, complex information flows, and asynchronous processing, all of which can lead to limited visibility into orders, materials, and production. To achieve peak performance, manufacturers must systematically identify and eliminate plant floor inefficiencies.
This lean manufacturing strategy requires a four-step cycle of continuous improvement:
Value-stream-mapping documents each step in the process, its inputs and outputs, across the entire supply chain.
Analysis and modeling identify tasks that could be simplified or cut altogether.
Implementation and continuous improvement actualize change on the plant floor.
Management and reporting evaluates the results and begins the cycle again.
