Industrial enterprises today need to survive in a market that is subject to ever-increasing and changing requirements, both on a national and an international level. This makes flexibility key – not just as a catch phrase but as a necessary reality. This is particularly true for small and mid-sized manufacturers. In this kind of market, the ability to adapt rapidly to new manufacturing operations becomes a decisive competitive advantage. Frequently, orders currently being produced must be adapted to different conditions, by adding either BOM items or production steps
Companies that want their success to be future-proof require a fully integrated, flexible, end-to-end IT solution that is highly responsive and guarantees access to all of the latest and most important information and operational as well as key performance statistics. It needs to provide total cost transparency – at any time and at any stage of production – and allow you to compare differing production process variations as well as the resulting profits, even as early as the bidding stage.
For small and mid-sized manufacturers, questions regarding capacity, workload and availability of materials arise frequently: Can we produce a product for a client by the date they request? Do we have the necessary resources (materials, machine capacity and manpower) available? How far into the future are we booked? Which work is backlogged or needs to be completed this week? Answers to these and other business-critical questions need to be readily available in order to ensure that operations in the company run efficiently.
