But in all cases, the UI features the Microsoft Office familiarity combined with consumer-style screens like automatic teller machine (ATM) or restaurant/retail shop point of sale (POS) terminals. For example, a supervisor will see the following: many pertinent key performance indicators (KPIs) and other analytical information such as plant Read More

man machine interfaces  time data, scheduling of man and material becomes inherently inaccurate and time consuming. As Miller observes, Before Global Shop, we were using another ERP package. As we grew into a larger company, we started running into issues with the software because it was more job-based rather than inventory-based. It was at this point, in 2002, that MWM turned to Global Shop to solve their growing inventory control problems, as well as the inefficiencies springing up throughout their plants as a result of the Read More
The Challenges of Integrating Enterprise Resource Planning and Manufacturing Execution Systems
While enterprise applications solutions are moving closer to the plant floor, and plant-level systems are moving closer to enterprise planning application

man machine interfaces  the system creates too many fields and screens, which are not applicable to the plant staff. No line worker or machine operator will spend minutes to enter data about an operation that took only seconds to do. As a result, many companies are forced to hire data entry or capturing clerks to achieve real-time data. Ironically this “flies in the face” of cost cutting and improved effectiveness. Additionally, since ERP systems are built around manual data entry concepts, complex programming, scripting, Read More
Comparing the Total Cost of Ownership of Business Intelligence Solutions
For many companies, traditional business intelligence (BI) software is costly and resource-intensive. So are open source alternatives that require significant

man machine interfaces  provision hardware to handle many users issuing complex analysis requests simultaneously. This extremely variable computing load requires provisioning of greater computing power and generally results in lower hardware use than in conventional computing systems. It is not uncommon to have CPU and disk use at 1-4% in order to handle infrequent peaks of 60-80%. These low use levels result in particularly expensive hardware requirements. Cloud-based hardware virtualization does not address this as these Read More

EAM versus CMMS: What's Right for Your Company? Part Two: Integration Concerns
In most cases, companies will acquire enterprise asset management (EAM) software but the interfaces to external systems will have to be constructed.

man machine interfaces  Integration Concerns Integration Concerns Many of the benefits from enterprise asset management (EAM) software result from the ability to exchange data from other systems and subsystems. These interfaces are not trivial in design or construction. For example, one of the simpler interfaces involves inventory. Namely, EAM software needs access to inventory to determine the availability of repair parts, whereas your manufacturing system needs access to inventory to dispense ingredients or bills of material Read More

For light manufacturing or small shops, SaaS is a money saver, and coupled with Ramco’s virtual machine access facility, provides an economic ERP solution. For the aerospace or automobile industries, where deeply nested multi-level bills of material (BOMs) are the norm, the product is usable, though in these industries, reporting by machine within a work-center obligates more data capture and more drill-down reporting. Ramco OnDemand ERP cannot be used by manufacturing Read More

Scheduling of multiple unique part numbers in a single cycle on a single machine is another fatal flaw. For example, if one has to make three unique part numbers in a single cycle on a single machine, the system has to be able to create a work order for each part, and Read More
