ERP for Mill-based and Material Converting Environments

The ERP for Mill-based and Material Converting Environments knowledge base focuses on a range of industrial activities that add value to raw materials by processing them into a form suitable for further manufacturing or for immediate end-use. These activities include traditional mills that turn grain into flour or extract sucrose from sugar cane; the spinning and weaving mills of the textiles and carpets sectors; the rolling plants of steel, aluminum, and other metals semi-fabricators; to the continuous outputs of paper and board mills.

Demand-Driven Strategies for Complex Manufacturing


Many manufacturing companies have adopted or are considering the adoption of a demand-driven strategy. However, if you want to be demand-driven, you aren’t going to achieve it without adopting many of the tools, techniques, and principles that commonly reside within all of them. Some philosophies require a more intense re-engineering of processes and products than others. This paper addresses the various components and strategies for becoming a demand-driven organization, and how Cincom’s solutions can help you achieve that goal.

Quick Response Manufacturing: ERP and Value Chain Acceleration


Whatever the reasons for pursuing a lead-time reduction strategy, time compression across all company processes is critical to growth, and in some cases means survival for today's manufacturers. Learn about the complementary nature of enterprise resource planning (ERP), value chain exceleration, and quick response manufacturing (QRM).

It takes into account, and goes beyond, principles that have been used in many time-compression projects, such as small lot sizes, product-oriented layout with local control, JIT and Kanban. It simplifies operations and reduces paperwork by eliminating work orders, reducing items and levels in BOM''s, and incorporating high-level MRP planning on a daily flow basis at a component level rather than Read More

Compliant Manufacturing Operations in Life Sciences Companies: Compliant Operations to Lead the Competition


For many life sciences organizations, a key impediment to compliant manufacturing operations remains the disconnect between enterprise and plant systems. This results in unsynchronized business processes and inadequate use of resources, which in turn increases the risk of non-compliance and inadequate quality of finished products. Find out why simply connecting systems is not enough to fully overcome these challenges.

Mixed-Mode 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.

Ramco Enterprise Series - Discrete Manufacturing


Please remove (put offline) Ramco Enterprise Series Discrete Manufacturing product  Sherry Fox (3/9/2015 11:30 AM): This product will be updated in the Ramco on Cloud Enterprise RFI. Request put in earlier.   Use the scores from this questionnaire to prepopulate the other.   The Ramco Discrete Production (DP) application is a manufacturing, planning, and control solution. Ramco DP was designed to address enterprise manufacturing requirements, ranging from production planning to scheduling and execution. It addresses the made-to-stock and made-to-order manufacturing environments, with the ability to handle ordinary configure-to-order requirements. While most organizations can benefit from DP applications, those enterprises with multiple manufacturing locations can benefit the most. This is because manufacturing planners in these enterprises can elect to have any of the following planning and execution models: centralized planning, with execution at respective locations; decentralized planning and execution at each manufacturing location; and mixed mode, where high level planning is done centrally and then devolved to the locations for further planning and execution. Ramco DP allows users to define processes in a flexible manner, in order to enable them to adapt to current or changed manufacturing management practices. The planning hierarchy can be changed to suit industry and organisational needs, without compromising on security issues. Its concept of "layered planning" enables flexible planning for any component in the bill of materials, at any time during the planning process. The DP application group is made up of three individual applications: Production Definition, Planning and Execution, and Engineering Change Control.

Petrochemical Manufacturing


Companies in the petrochemical industry manage the operations and processes that transform crude oil and other raw materials into chemical products. There are two major categories of petrochemical companies:
  • companies that refine oil and other raw materials and convert them into basic chemicals such as ethylene; and
  • companies that use these basic chemicals to create materials that can then be used in other industries to produce finished products, such as plastics, detergents, paints, fertilizers, polyester, etc.
