Implementing a Manufacturing Information System (ERP) to Generate Optimal Results

Posted by Simone Erskine on Jun 13, 2018 2:06:34 PM

What will happen when you to refine, standardize, streamline and integrate all of your business processes across finance and accounting, IT, HR, R&D, sales, distribution, and other departments with an effective ERP system? You will see greater efficiency in your practices with an organization performing at its peak.

"Before implementing a new ERP or manufacturing information system, a company should recognize that a new system, alone, cannot solve work-arounds and inefficient processes. Investing time to improve your internal workflow in conjunction with the new system will allow for a smoother transition to a more effective implemented solution. Don’t let fear of failure or going over budget keep you from taking your company to the next level." – John Remsey, Technical Specialist (IMEC)

Is Your IT System Living Up To Its Capabilities?

Companies that purchase a new manufacturing information system do so to better manage the business, cut costs, and improve customer relationships – i.e. the “strategy”.  However, when it comes to implementing the system – the “art of execution” – many companies settle for a less than fully-functional solution.  An audit, or gap analysis, of your existing system may yield substantial opportunities for improvement, especially if your company:

  • Does not have an IT manager or other personnel intimately familiar with the system.
  • Is upgrading an existing system but wants to pinpoint the potential benefits first.
  • Experiences disruptions because of underutilized or incapable systems.
  • Is in an industry where customer requirements or regulations change frequently.
  • Is on a lean journey.
  • Has concerns about system fault-tolerance and/or disaster recovery.
  • Is experiencing very large year-over-year growth patterns.
  • Customer or supplier information exchange interfaces have changed.
