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.

The Rise of Mobile Access to Your ERP Data


Mobile user access to enterprise resource planning (ERP) and other back-office systems has become a core requirement as organizations seek operational efficiency and deepening customer engagement. Without mobile access, system users are disadvantaged by needing to return to a desktop, often after a job is completed, to enter data relating to that job and get information about other jobs. Frequently that information is not entered at all, which becomes a further hindrance to user adoption of your ERP investment.

Mobile users increasingly are looking for ease of access to ERP information to perform their jobs on any device at any time. This requires the mobile solution to handle:

  • Different mobile devices and applications for different roles/jobs
  • Ability to be used by staff with limited computer or language skills, in adverse conditions
In this age of “bring your own device” (BYOD), mobile devices are affordable, mainstream, reliable, secure, and scalable to run multiple applications. We are now able to prove return on investments from those organizations that have implemented mobile solutions and developed BYOD policies. In today’s environment, mobile solutions are seen as core drivers of organizations pushing to gain operational efficiencies over their competitors. According to a recent report from Aberdeen Group, “enterprise mobile apps in 2013 are no longer ‘nice to have’—they’ve become essential enablers of organizational transformation, by increasing operational efficiency, accelerating time-to-decision, deepening customer engagement, and streamlining workflow processes.”
