Stability and Functionality for Process and Discrete Manufacturers
While superficially, Infor's acquisition strategy may appear to be impulsive, it has actually been calculated to develop a stronger vertical functionality. This

discrete manufacturers  Functionality for Process and Discrete Manufacturers Situational Analysis Customer requirements for enterprise applications capabilities have changed dramatically. The demand for remote access application availability through different interfaces and devices has risen. To enable access through Web services, Web browsers, portals, popular desktop applications, mobile phones, and personal digital assistants (PDA), the presentation (client) and back-end (server) business logic needs to be separated. For Read More...

Getting It Right: ERP Solutions for Mixed-mode Manufacturers
Falling somewhere between discrete and process manufacturing, mixed-mode manufacturers haven’t always been well served by traditional discrete or process

discrete manufacturers  The Trouble with Traditional Discrete and Process ERP Systems Because mixed-mode manufacturers fall somewhere in between discrete and process manufacturing, ERP systems geared solely toward one type or the other often fail to support key mixed-mode manufacturing processes, resulting in decreased productivity and customer satisfaction, not to mention a lower return on investment (ROI) for the manufacturer. For example, the challenge faced by a mixed-mode manufacturer when attempting to use an ERP package Read More...
The Informed Manufacturer-Tips, Tricks, and Tactics for Discrete Manufacturers
Many companies don’t have adequate metrics or information technology systems to see how well growth strategies and activities perform in real time. This white

discrete manufacturers  Tricks, and Tactics for Discrete Manufacturers Many companies don’t have adequate metrics or information technology systems to see how well growth strategies and activities perform in real time. This white paper addresses the lack of supply chain synchronization: the ability for a manufacturer to cost effectively respond to changes in demand and then signal everyone in the supply chain. Synchronization closes the gaps in a supply chain that lead to costly wastes. Read More...
Discrete ERP 101
Puzzled by process? Dazed by discrete?First, let’s understand who should use a discrete ERP application.Discrete manufacturers assemble products from

discrete manufacturers  a discrete ERP application. Discrete manufacturers assemble products from component parts. These products are made to order and can, in theory, be disassembled (ex: cars, computers, tables…). Process manufacturers (AKA continuous manufacturers), on the other hand, make products that cannot be disassembled into their component elements (ex: spray paint, whiskey, talcum powder…). Both process and discrete ERP software aim at full integration of management, staff, and equipment. This integration Read More...
Today's Discrete ERP Landscape: Trends, Challenges, and Solutions
With web-enabled technology, business intelligence, and supply chain management becoming integral parts of the manufacturing environment, discrete enterprise

discrete manufacturers  three main trends affecting discrete manufacturers today are 1) technology, 2) changing business models, and 3) compliance. Technology Trends ERP software has changed dramatically since its earlier days of material requirements planning (MRP) and MRP II. Among other changes, it has integrated with the complex networks of supply chain management (SCM) software. Because the manufacturing environment has become so complex, and because many new types of software have been developed to meet the growing needs Read More...

discrete manufacturers  Discrete Vs ERP Process ERP Discrete vs. ERP Process People often ask what's the difference between process and discrete ERP? Here's a rough overview of the difference. A quick definition from APICS (The Association for Operations Management) describes discrete manufacturing as the production of distinct items such as automobiles, appliances, or computers, whereas process manufacturing covers production that adds value by mixing, separating, forming, and/or performing chemical reactions. It may be Read More...
