ERP software for industrial machinery and Equipment manufacturers
Complex engineering requirements are just one part of the challenging landscape faced by industrial machinery and capital equipment manufacturers. Customers are constantly demanding higher quality, lower costs and quicker deliveries. Furthermore, your sector is subject to sudden market changes and often reliant on the health of other industries.
Tons of inventory, machines, and processes: this is what makes machinery and equipment manufacturing a challenge. Workflow management of multi-level assemblies can become a tangle of inter-dependencies for machinery manufacturers, but with an ERP inventory tracking, shop floor scheduling, and other MRP functions can easily be managed and adjusted for greater throughput. Machinery and equipment manufacturers can also gain an understanding of the actual costs of each build while becoming a reliable industrial machinery manufacturer for their customers by using key features and functionalities available in an ERP.
Benefits of ERP for industrial machinery manufacturers
- Design and quote using rules-based configuration
- Improve lead times and reduce waste by implementing lean manufacturing
- Increase sales and profits with Customer Relationship Management (CRM) features
- Improve product quality with robust quality assurance checks
- Advanced production scheduling helps you deliver on time and to budget
- Dashboards and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to closely monitor operations and productivity
Enhancing collaboration across the manufacturing process
The need for collaboration in manufacturing processes is key for machinery and equipment manufacturers. Complex BOMs, fabricating parts and sub-assemblies and making a final assembly using hundreds of parts with multiple operations and thousands of tasks all add up to a complex manufacturing process. Without collaboration between departments, and an ERP system that can facilitate collaboration, machinery and equipment manufacturers can get lost in the weeds. Often a disconnect typically exists among design, engineering, operations, and suppliers within a machinery shop. Not coordinating complex builds and having a lack of visibility throughout an organization can affect delivery dates and final product quality. But, one of the key advantages.
ERP software brings to machinery manufacturers is the ability to integrate multiple sets of data from different applications and departments across a product’s life cycle. ERPs connect an entire shop, allowing for better communication and collaboration, meaning manufacturers can better facilitate the high level of communication and teamwork that is required within their manufacturing processes.
ERPs reduces the potential for quality problems or redundant work because a shop is working off of the same reliable information that anyone working from anywhere can access and use at any time. Manufacturers can enter data once, share it throughout their operation, and keep all documents and tracking information in one place for everyone to access.
Many machinery and equipment manufacturers manufacture both a standard catalog of parts and equipment as well as create custom equipment for their clients. These manufacturers need an ERP system that is built from the understanding that custom manufacturing requires greater coordination between product development, estimation, production planning, and sales. An ERP built exclusively for custom manufacturers gives them an all-in-one-place to store and manage the complete range of information it needs for a custom job. Manufacturers can view details of open orders, prices, and preferred vendors, and can see the impact of their choices on production, finance, and procurement
An ERP eliminates the need for individual spreadsheets and creates a deeper level of connection between departments. The engineering department, crucial to the custom manufacturing process can easily interact, communicate, and share information with other key departments, such as purchasing and production with an ERP. Everyone can get the information they need to do their jobs effectively. For example, including knowing what long-lead items are needed so that they can be ordered early on during the design phase, which will ensure the items arrive in time.
