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.

Ramco Enterprise Series - Discrete Manufacturing


Please remove (put offline) Ramco Enterprise Series Discrete Manufacturing product  Sherry Fox (3/9/2015 11:30 AM): This product will be updated in the Ramco on Cloud Enterprise RFI. Request put in earlier.   Use the scores from this questionnaire to prepopulate the other.   The Ramco Discrete Production (DP) application is a manufacturing, planning, and control solution. Ramco DP was designed to address enterprise manufacturing requirements, ranging from production planning to scheduling and execution. It addresses the made-to-stock and made-to-order manufacturing environments, with the ability to handle ordinary configure-to-order requirements. While most organizations can benefit from DP applications, those enterprises with multiple manufacturing locations can benefit the most. This is because manufacturing planners in these enterprises can elect to have any of the following planning and execution models: centralized planning, with execution at respective locations; decentralized planning and execution at each manufacturing location; and mixed mode, where high level planning is done centrally and then devolved to the locations for further planning and execution. Ramco DP allows users to define processes in a flexible manner, in order to enable them to adapt to current or changed manufacturing management practices. The planning hierarchy can be changed to suit industry and organisational needs, without compromising on security issues. Its concept of "layered planning" enables flexible planning for any component in the bill of materials, at any time during the planning process. The DP application group is made up of three individual applications: Production Definition, Planning and Execution, and Engineering Change Control.

Technology Is My Partner


For AG & Co., embracing new technology was the only way to go if it wanted to continue increasing its revenues. Although it had purchased a new computer system back in 1986, the old software products it was using were non-integrated, making it difficult to keep track of engagements and billing. Billable time meant revenue, so AG & Co. opted to implement BillQuick, and has since reduced its overhead and increased profits.

Petrochemical Manufacturing


Companies in the petrochemical industry manage the operations and processes that transform crude oil and other raw materials into chemical products. There are two major categories of petrochemical companies:
  • companies that refine oil and other raw materials and convert them into basic chemicals such as ethylene; and
  • companies that use these basic chemicals to create materials that can then be used in other industries to produce finished products, such as plastics, detergents, paints, fertilizers, polyester, etc.
