ERP Solutions for Mixed-mode Manufacturers

When manufacturers acquire new companies, fully integrating their legacy ERP systems across the new organizations can be like trying to "fit a square peg into a round hole." Today's blog post looks at how software vendors are responding to these "integration" problems, with mixed-mode ERP solutions.

An integrated steel plant is a large and complex operation, with a unique set of issues revolving around process parameters and variations in the properties of raw materials. Today's feature article looks at steel manufacturers' special needs, and how mixed-mode ERP solutions are being designed to address them.

Under constant pressure to reduce lead times, increase quality, and lower costs, make-to-order and mixed-mode manufacturers may be best served by powerful new integrated manufacturing applications built on a service-oriented architecture (SOA). Find out more in today's feature white paper.
