Discrete Manufacturing (ERP)

The simplified definition of enterprise resource planning (ERP) software is a set of applications that automate finance and human resources departments and help manufacturers handle jobs such as order processing and production scheduling. ERP began as a term used to describe a sophisticated and integrated software system used for manufacturing. In its simplest sense, ERP systems create interactive environments designed to help companies manage and analyze the business processes associated with manufacturing goods, such as inventory control, order taking, accounting, and much more. Although this basic definition still holds true for ERP systems, today its definition is expanding. Today’s leading ERP systems group all traditional company management functions (finance, sales, manufacturing, and human resources). Many systems include, with varying degrees of acceptance and skill, solutions that were formerly considered peripheral such as product data management (PDM), warehouse management, manufacturing execution system (MES), and reporting. During the last few years the functional perimeter of ERP systems began an expansion into its adjacent markets, such as supply chain management (SCM), customer relationship management (CRM), business intelligence/data warehousing, and e-business, the focus of this knowledge base is mainly on the traditional ERP realms of finance, materials planning, and human resources. The foundation of any ERP implementation must be a proper exercise of aligning customers'' IT technology with their business strategies, and subsequent software selection.

ERP System for Industrial Machinery Manufacturing


A U.S.-based industrial machinery manufacturer was looking for a fully integrated Engineer-to-order (ETO) enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution to replace an aging legacy system, including some in-house applications.

To find the right solution, the company turned to TEC for an extended software evaluation and selection project—building a custom requirement set that included components from ETO ERP, ERP for distribution, customer relationship management (CRM), computerized maintenance management system–enterprise asset management (CMMS-EAM), product lifecycle management (PLM), and project portfolio management (PPM) solutions.

Starting with a list of nine qualified solutions, TEC issued requests for information (RFIs) to each of the vendors. Based on the RFI responses, the company was able to compare the nine solutions and develop a shortlist of the four most promising ones for in-depth evaluation.

TEC also helped the company collect market data—a key component of the final selection process.
