Macola ERP Supply Chain Management (SCM)


The definition of a successful manufacturing enterprise is one that builds the right products, at the right time, for the right price. That’s why so many manufacturing companies today are focused on managing the entire value-added chain, from the supplier to manufacturer, right through to the final customer. Supply chain management (SCM) has one overriding objective: to get more throughput from existing resources. SCM functionality helps companies reduce inventory, increase the transaction speed by exchanging data in real time, and increase sales by implementing customer requirements more efficiently. Through the use of portals, Macola ERP SCM users can collaborate with customers and see a real-time view of activity across the organization. It starts with the ability to accurately forecast customer demands, and continues with effective planning and scheduling of the flow of materials through the enterprise, to assure on-time delivery and maximum discounts from suppliers. The vendor's solutions enable users to track orders from beginning to end, right out to the customer. And users can make changes on the fly. All corporate information is located in one database, saving employees valuable time when looking for information. Drill-down reporting and analysis is at your fingertips, keeping the process running smoothly. Users can manage customer expectations by providing realistic product delivery dates based on actual and planned material availability, current production capacity, and vendor lead times. Exact provides the tools to evaluate options for expediting materials or adding capacity to meet a requested date, or to propose alternate delivery options when it is not possible to meet the customer’s requested date. Out-of-stocks and excess inventory can be avoided through recommended job and purchase order processes. Users can purchase materials “just-in-time” relative to the live production schedule.

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.
