SAP Manufacturing-Manufacturing Intelligence Dashboards
Adaptiveness in the manufacturing sector depends on being able to push decisionmaking to the shop floor. But that’s often easier said than done. However

various manufacturing processes  At many companies, the various systems used for enterprise resource planning (ERP) , manufacturing execution, and shopfloor automation are not well integrated. Data is fragmented across systems. There is little or no real-time information about production events available on the shop floor. And users cannot easily access up-to-date reports and perform the rapid analyses needed to evaluate and improve performance. It’s an environment where plant managers and production personnel are overloaded with data

The Seven Keys to World-class Manufacturing


What does it mean to be a world-class competitor? It means being successful in your market against any competition—regardless of size or country of origin. It means matching or exceeding any competitor on quality, lead time, cost, customer service, and innovation. It means picking your battles—competing on the terms dictated by you. But how do you get there?

various manufacturing processes  new hires and paying various expenses involved in ramping up a new production line or process. Capital assets can become a liability in a fast-changing marketplace. As customer demands and technologies change the nature and makeup of products, it can be an advantage to not be tied to a relatively inflexible physical plant. For companies large and small, the goal is to become a world-class organization and to be able to compete in today's global markets. For manufacturers, the fastest and easiest way to Read More

What Are Manufacturing Execution Systems?


A manufacturing execution system (MES) can be defined as a collection of business processes providing event-by-event, real-time execution of planned production requirements. However, market ambiguity and functional overlap with enterprise resource planning systems obscure what an MES can bring to an enterprise.

various manufacturing processes  names given to the various components of the execution systems vary greatly among industries and even among companies within an industry—if not between plants within a company. To add further confusion, official definitions of a manufacturing execution system (MES) differ as well. APICS Dictionary (11th edition) defines it as [p]rograms and systems that participate in shop floor control, including programmed logic controllers and process control computers for direct and supervisory control of Read More

Manufacturing 2007 Executive Summary

Cloud ERP for Manufacturing: 6 Considerations


There is no shortage of cloud-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) software offerings nowadays, for almost any vertical manufacturing market segment. But while cloud solutions are routine for many businesses, manufacturing companies have not yet fully embraced them. TEC analyst Aleksey Osintsev explores the main reasons why manufacturers are staying away from the cloud and overturns them.

various manufacturing processes  of business software across various industries, manufacturing businesses still express a lot of skepticism, uncertainty, and concern about the applicability of cloud software to their business. Despite the rush for the cloud with other types of business software, such as customer relationship management (CRM), human resources management (HRM), and project and process management (PPM), there are valid reasons for manufacturing companies to avoid off-premise ERP systems. Some of these issues are to do with Read More
