Using ERP for Process Manufacturing Quality Management


Today, process manufacturing executives need to think about more than core batch and recipe management capabilities when considering software solutions like enterprise resource planning (ERP). Due to both regulatory and market factors, quality management and documentation of the quality and content of goods produced is essential.
