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.

How Supply Chain Projects Morph Into Black Holes


For all but a few astronomers, black holes are unknown in the realm of ordinary experience.

Sales & Operations Planning: A Two-part Journey to a Bigger Bottom Line


This whitepaper demonstrates how you can positively impact your bottom line through improved sales and operations planning (S&OP), defined as "continuously balancing supply and demand, while connecting the impact of operational decisions to your financial plan." In this regard, S&OP cannot be talked about in isolation. It includes elements of demand planning, supply planning, and budgeting. Its purpose is to create the demand-supply balance essential to guiding operational decisions that have been evaluated against the financial context. Effectively executed, S&OP will deliver improved inventory turns and margins, leading to increased revenue, higher customer satisfaction, and better use of capital. Download to learn more today.

Master Requirement Planning and Master Production Scheduling Software: Hard Facts Part Two: Materials Requirement Planning and Master Production Scheduling


Most of the manufacturing software vendors have planning and scheduling software which assume either infinite production capacity for calculating quantities of raw material and work in progress (WIP) requirements or infinite quantities of raw and WIP materials for calculating production capacity. There are many problems with this approach. This paper discusses the pitfalls of this approach and how to avoid these by making sure that the software you buy indeed takes into account finite quantities of required materials as well as finite capacities of work centers in your manufacturing facility.

From this information, total raw materials required for producing ordered quantities of finished products are calculated, but there is a catch. There are two considerations: If capacity of the manufacturing unit as well as capacity of work centers is not taken care of, then the software will generate the wrong quantities of materials requirements. So the software should Read More
