Conversely, in discrete manufacturing, one missing part means waiting for it to arrive before the finished assembly unit can start rolling off the production line. With process manufacturing, one also tends to make products in bulk or batches, as in a vat of coke or a 500 gallon tank of solvent, and then pack it off to fulfill customer orders. On the other hand, in discrete manufacturing one would expect to see one appliance or car at a time coming down the

Intuitive Manufacturing Systems Shows Maturity in Adolescent Age Part Four: Challenges and User Recommendations


As long as the "old" software is meeting business needs, new technology is not the change driver, which makes building replacement products on a new framework a higher risk strategy. Product functionality still matters and, while it is important for enterprise applications providers to implement the latest computer science "quantum leap", there is no guaranteed correlation between first-to-market and the ultimate-success-in-the-market. In fact, based on many experiences, one could even argue that the correlation might be inverse.

Real-Time Versus "Right-Time" Decision Making: A New Competitive Advantage


In this day and age, the ability for a company to utilize information quickly and effectively is more important than ever before. But faster access to increasingly large amounts of data doesn’t always mean that good real-time decisions are being made.

Finance has to be involved in the selection and use of new analytic tools which rapidly define and filter data from a variety of sources. Selecting and sorting information into what’s vital to decision making and what isn’t allows for better decision making to occur. A company’s data needs to be defined and synchronized consistently across the board, but quality of data also has to have value in order to be of use. The data then has to land in the right hands in order for the right actions to be implemented. Quality, real-time data has to be accessible at the right time, in the hands of the right people.

In this white paper, learn what right-time decision making is and how to use analytics to your benefit, e.g., to test hypothetical choices before implementation. Get information on how to create strong data governance to support high quality data, investigate analytical tools for problem-solving, and learn how the delivery of information to decision makers can affect your business choices positively or negatively.

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.
