Pelion Systems Champions Manufacturing Process Optimization


Manufacturing operations are characterized by a need for factory transformation management. Via software that uses a "virtual factory" approach to synchronize the supply chain, Pelion Systems is attempting to establish a new market category, manufacturing process optimization, to satisfy this need.

oracle implementing lean manufacturing  ERP vendors, such as Oracle and SAP , can articulate a similar vision, but must compete functionally across multiple modules that are considered complex to implement and interoperate. Lean niche vendors like FactoryLogic and eBots have a more narrow focus and are not as adaptive to multiple manufacturing operations strategies. Pelion Systems, on the other hand, has recently completed migration to the Microsoft .NET platform, and has achieved SAP Certified for NetWeaver status. This is significant Read More

At best, they might offer single-tenant hosted versions of their  on-premise software . Alternatively, when they do offer true SaaS solutions, it is mostly for niche functionality in a  “software plus service” manner (only as a SaaS fringe to their on-premise software) , such as to enable credit card payments, Read More

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. Advancing environmental awareness and the ability to handle recalls both factor into this increased focus on quality.

Customers have high expectations of manufacturers and other suppliers and often focus on good corporate behaviors, especially when it comes to sustainability. Adherence to legislation is of course necessary—but manufacturers who go beyond the required can find this to be a competitive advantage.

As supply chains and distribution patterns become more global, more process manufacturers also need to pay attention to and comply with numerous national and regional regulations.

This white paper outlines how batch process manufacturers can select and use enterprise software with embedded quality management functionality to face these challenges.

Process 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, human resources) and include, with varying degrees of acceptance and skill, many solutions that were formerly considered peripheral (product data management (PDM), warehouse management, manufacturing execution system (MES), reporting, etc.). While 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 old adage is "Such a beginning, such an end", and, consequently, many ERP systems' failures could be traced back to a bad software selection. The foundation of any ERP implementation must be a proper exercise of aligning customers' IT technology with their business strategy, and subsequent software selection. This is the perfect time to create the business case and energize the entire organization towards the vision sharing and a buy in, both being the Key Success Factors (KSFs). Yet, these steps are very often neglected despite the amount of expert literature and articles that emphasize their importance.
