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.

Creating a Modern, Effective Manufacturing Environment with ERP


In today's manufacturing industry, enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions have become ubiquitous. In fact, Aberdeen's 2014 Business Management and ERP Benchmark Survey found that 97% of leading manufacturers use ERP, in comparison to 88% of followers.

Further, these modern manufacturers may supplement their solutions with supporting technology that exponentially increases the benefits that are received from the functionality and data contained within ERP.

Continuous improvement has long been a cornerstone of the manufacturing industry, and in that spirit, today's top performers must find ways to extend ERP in order to compete effectively in the modern environment. This report identifies the challenges that face the modern manufacturing environment and illustrates how Leading manufacturers make ERP a foundation for efficiency, effectiveness, and growth.
