ERP Systems For Manufacturers
Manufacturing is a wealth-producing sector of the economy. As such effective manufacturing companies are critical to national economic stability. For manufacturers aiming to be competitive keeping costs low and manufacturing in volume are both key considerations. Within manufacturing ERP is used to plan the ordering of materials and other resources, set manufacturing schedules, and compile cost data.
ERP provides an integrated view of core business processes, often in real-time, using common databases and maintained by a database management system. ERP systems track business resources – cash, raw materials, production capacity – and the status of business commitments: orders, purchase orders, and payroll. The applications that make up the system share data across the various departments, manufacturing, purchasing, sales, and accounting, that provide the data. ERP facilitates information flow between all business functions, and manages connections to outside stakeholders. Businesses today class their ERP system as a vital business tool because it integrates varied organisational systems and facilitates error-free transactions and production.
