In today’s world, manufacturing companies depend on technology for inventory management, resource allocation, product design, production scheduling, process optimization, and more. They engage a mix of discrete, process, and lean manufacturing methods that are often manage through distinct systems. This restraint makes it difficult to cost-effectively satisfy customer demands, especially across multiple sites and geographies. The increasing requirements for green manufacturing, the growth of contract manufacturing, and the array of global workforce all heighten shortcomings in many of today’s ERP solutions.
To overcome these challenges, workers in manufacturing firms need real-time access to role specific information along with the tools that help them perform their individual tasks, in the office or on the shop floor, from any location around the world. A world-class ERP solution, Microsoft Dynamics AX was built to provide these capabilities while managing discrete, lean and process manufacturing models with a single solution as well as scheduling resources to jobs and operation across multiple locations.
Success in the manufacturing industry requires that you produce the right products, in the right quantities, at the right time, with good quality, and at a price the customer is willing to pay. The flexibility to respond to compliance standards and the ever-changing needs of customers, such as providing real-time visibility into global operations, is also imperative for success. Meeting these demands requires the ability to make quick decisions based on accurate data. Microsoft and its partners deliver systems that can help you improve operations, open visibility into the supply chain, and increase your competitiveness.
