Production and Manufacturing SoftwareFactsERP increases the efficiency and quality of manufacturing process. The manufacturing process experience slumps often due to miscommunication. Thus, FactsERP is known for providing solutions by coordinating the actions between supply chains, warehouses and logistics.
Another known function of the software is to track down the status of the product. Formerly, customers were made to run from pillar to post to enquire the status of product or to enquire a technical problem. He, then, would ask the person from the concerned department of the company. The person would check the details and get back to him. This results to a time-consuming process. The longer the chains of communication greater are the chances of mistakes. Hence, this is where FactsERP mitigates the long process by efficiently amalgamating the entire operation.
Coordinates logistics, supply chain and warehousing operationsThis is said to be the first and foremost advantage. The logistics, supply chain and warehousing departments were said to have irregular means of communication which often led to chaos and confusion with regards to the goods and raw materials. Therefore, FACTS provide quick access of the level of stock and raw materials from the common database to every department. The departments can update the database as and when necessary which makes it useful for the user from any end in the factory.
Judging the requirements and outputs preciselyThe manufacturing sector constantly faces troubles in allocating raw materials and deciding the outputs. These problems are solved by the ERP. It is designed with tools that helps to facilitate the calculations in an accurate manner. It calculates more than a billion permutations and combinations in a millisecond. The turnkey manufacturing of ERP provides total solutions to the sector.
Analyze the drawbacksDrawbacks such as time lag and manufacturing flaws is well identified by FactsERP. Thus, the software coordinates the manufacturing process in a manner by mobilizing the resources efficiently and allocating things in the respective place.
FACTS help the manufacturing sector in the following manner:
Offering applications for diverse environmentThe manufacturing sector has a unique character. Its operations exhibit vast differences not only among products but also against the units in various firms. This is the nature of work done in the industry. The versatile operation makes it utterly difficult to introduce any applications for the manufacturing sector.
FACTS Enterprise applications helps greatly in providing precise and stable solutions that exactly fit the existing work flow of the company.
Helps to manage changeWhile discussing change in the manufacturing sector the stress is on the quantum of change. Since change is an unavoidable element it is equally important to ensure that it is received positively and maximum measures are taken to meet the demand.
SynchronicityAgain, the greatest benefit to be gained from integration is having everyone in the production operation on the same page looking at the same real-time data.
Data Input Only OnceWhen data is input in one part of the system, the whole system has access to it. From estimates to work orders, from payroll to shipping, any input data is available to everyone. This, then, leads to the next point of. . .
Less SpreadsheetsSince all data is in the single-source system, production information does not have to be reproduced on traveling (and often out-of-date) spreadsheets.
OrderlinessWhen FACTS is used to replace two or more independent applications, it eliminates the need for the external interfaces that were required between systems in non-ERP operations.
Shortened Cycle TimesFACTS works well with just-in-time pull-production, increasing inventory turnover and reducing inventory cycle times.
Efficient Direct LaborDirect labor costs are reduced through precise and real-time production data. For example, routers might give clear and concise production instructions. As well, clocking on and off a job is made easier using integrated recording systems such as Graphic User Interfaces (GUI).
Less In-Direct LaborThrough integrated GUI time clocks, in-direct and non-productive labor time is accounted for by employees, and production is measured in terms of output relative to time spent.
Reduced Set-Up TimeIn FactsERP, scheduling is tailored to build production around standardization, repetitive processes, and other lean manufacturing principles to reduce machine set-up and break-down times.
On-Time DeliveryUltimately, the primary goal of on-time delivery is achieved through the efficiencies gained in ERP system unification. Production contingencies are anticipated and built into the scheduling system because of continuous data flow.
In conclusion, these great benefits realized through FACTS integration are the result of one thing—synchronicity in the total operation. Manufacturers who chose to utilize FactsERP, as well as robust software and hardware within the system - can expect greater productivity through enhanced efficiencies with desirable bottom-line profits.
