The use of multiple systems on different platforms increases a manufacturer’s IT costs for application licensing, implementation, custom integrations, and support.
Utilizing a legacy or entry-level ERP system that relies heavily on expensive customizations and one-off integrations is difficult to maintain and support.
Without the use of an appropriate ERP system, your data becomes siloed, preventing manufacturing management from making critical business decisions with the best information. Siloed data can create confusion and result in unhappy customers and lost revenue opportunities.
It is difficult and often impossible to connect legacy systems with current business and industry technologies. Without an ERP, manufacturers are unable to automate processes and connect data from external systems or machines.
Manufacturers who have an inefficient manufacturing process can easily have delayed customer shipments and increased costs.
Poor communications, late deliveries, product quality issues and delayed access to information can result in negative customer experiences.
Manage every aspect of your manufacturing business in one place, and boost efficiency with a comprehensive, mobile, manufacturing ERP designed for your unique needs.
Improved manufacturing processes result in lower costs and more competitive pricing, allowing you to convert more manufacturing estimates to sales. Make it easy for customers to self-serve through integrated customer portals with access to product configurators and estimating. Integrated B2B and B2C commerce storefronts help you sell online. Access to meaningful sales analysis helps you to sell more to existing customers.
Improve customer satisfaction and retention with improved customer service, on-time deliveries, competitive pricing, and access to self-service information.
MTS is a manufacturing system where finished goods are produced to stock. Customer orders are fulfilled from existing stock as opposed to being fulfilled from manufacturing. In this method manufacturing proactively maintains adequate stock levels for forecasted customer orders.
MTO manufacturers rarely stock finished goods. Instead, manufacturing is scheduled to fulfill direct customer orders. Some variants of MTO manufacturing include ATO, CTO, ETO, and job shop manufacturing.
ATO manufacturers assemble components to fulfill customer orders, and therefore rarely stock finished assemblies. They have simple processes and production requirements.
ETO manufacturers design products based on customer specifications prior to manufacturing. Assemblies and raw materials are kept in stock, but they are not assembled until a customer order is received and the part is designed by engineering.
CTO manufacturing generates unique finished goods using a rules-based product configurator to define the bill of materials and routing based on options and values such as size, color, or other variables.
Mixed-mode manufacturers produce finished goods both to stock (MTS) and to order (MTO). Also, companies that operate discrete and process operations are sometimes called mixed mode.
Remanufacturing relates to used parts being repaired for resale. Remanufacturing is common for consumer electronics, transmissions, batteries, printer ink, furniture, and other products. Recycling and disassembly are also forms of remanufacturing where products are broken down into salvageable components.
Job shops typically have minimal raw materials and finished goods inventory on-site. Most orders begin with an estimate, with the job shop purchasing materials directly for their customer’s orders. True job shops do not stock finished goods and typically ship directly from work in process to the customer.
Repetitive Manufacturing (REM) is the production of goods in rapid succession and typically is used in conjunction with automated assembly. It is common when producing a standard product for a model year where there is a known or expected demand for the period. Repetitive and continuous flow manufacturing often relies on Master Production Scheduling (MPS) and Rough-Cut Capacity Planning (RCCP).
Batch process manufacturers use batches, formulas, and recipes, as opposed to a discrete bill of materials and work order. The formula or recipe is either a percentage of the batch or a discrete quantity. Acumatica natively supports batch order types, lot tracking, picking by lot expiration date, and many other process manufacturing business requirements. Other process manufacturers use partner applications that extend Acumatica with more advanced process manufacturing features.
Project-centric manufacturers cost, schedule, and build complex products in phases. This is common in capital equipment, aerospace and defense, and other labor-intensive industries.
Lean manufacturing is a method of manufacturing that minimizes waste in both materials and processes. It often uses just-in-time pull systems to shorten lead times, reduce operating costs, and improve product quality.
