WorkWise Role-Based ERP Certification Report


Role-Based ERP (RB-ERP) by WorkWise is now TEC certified in the enterprise resource planning (ERP) for discrete manufacturing solution space. The RB-ERP solution supports multiple discrete manufacturing processes including engineer to order, configure to order, make to order, and make to stock. The RB-ERP customer base spans many manufacturing verticals, including vehicle product manufacturing; equipment manufacturing; metal forming, stamping, and assembly; build-to-order; and plastics manufacturing.

RB-ERP is accessed via workbenches that are customizable to match the user’s job function and role within the organization. The workbenches are not just a user interface layer, but are built on top of an application framework. The workbench designs make it possible for users to navigate and work across a broad range of operations quickly and efficiently.

There are a number of other tools and modules that stand out in the RB-ERP solution. For example, the RB-ERP mobile metrics tool, which provides mobile access to more than 200 pre-calculated metrics. And the product configurator within RB-ERP, which is much more powerful than the configurator tools normally delivered with an ERP system in this price range.

According to TEC senior ERP analyst Ted Rohm, although outside of the Midwest, WorkWise RB-ERP and the Oncontact CRM solutions are not very well known, "this well-kept secret needs to be let out so that manufacturers know there is a very capable and cost-effective alternative to the well-known job shop and mid-market manufacturing ERP solutions."

Find out why in the Role-Based ERP TEC certification report, including key product differentiators, a detailed look at support of processes and new functionality with the latest version of the RB-ERP, and detailed functionality graphs comparing the product to competitor solutions in the major functionality areas for ERP solutions for discrete manufacturing.

A Case Study and Tutorial in Using IT Knowledge Based Tools Part 2: A Tutorial


This tutorial, part 2 of a two part series on Knowledge Based Selection, demonstrates the selection processes and capabilities of Knowledge Based Selection Methods and Tools. These tools, integrated with business decision making procedures, can arguably reduce selection risk and improve chances for success in IT projects. Given the appalling rate of IT project failures, selection can potentially help reduce risk in some 30% of cases, with an associated estimated cost of about $30B annually to industry according to some sources. In this tutorial, we illustrate a number of the procedures for rapid decision processing through the real-life selection of a PDA device. The process gave confidence to the argument to wait for the solution, while weighing risk against return.
