The Challenges of Integrating Enterprise Resource Planning and Manufacturing Execution Systems
While enterprise applications solutions are moving closer to the plant floor, and plant-level systems are moving closer to enterprise planning application

manufacturing planning and control systems  and systems to manage manufacturing as it occurs, and then reporting aggregated actual results to the planning level. Product-centric versus Process-centric A major role of the plant execution system is to collect and pool data from real-time processes, which are sent to enterprise applications at the planning level. These may include ERP and supply chain management (SCM). However, the reality is that enterprise applications are product-centric; plant-level applications are process- and asset-centric.

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.
