Gaining the competitive edge in the manufacturing industry requires an ERP solution that can optimise operational capabilities, connect production processes to improve interoperability, and better support the management of inventory and quality control.
Microsoft Dynamics can assist manufacturing companies in simplifying and streamlining their production processes by specifically responding to the needs of the manufacturing sector.
1. Lean Manufacturing
More companies plan on leaner production cycles, which require optimising production workflows and successfully tracking operations. It may also require advanced support for specific production processes and custom jobs.
Microsoft’s ERP system supports and simplifies product cycles. It provides for order management and the entry of goods into production. Production is regulated by specific customer requests, reversing the logic of the traditional production process. The process is driven by demand.
The ERP solution optimises the entire production cycle, from planning to the planning of materials, processing capacity and production orders, submitting detailed reports on costs and resources invested.
Microsoft Azure is a cloud computing infrastructure and platform aimed at the building, deploying and managing of applications and services. You may hear us talk about Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS).
2. Warehouse Management
Warehouse management is essential in the storing, tracking and handling of products after production. To optimise sales, product data needs to be processed in real-time, including order numbers, production dates, specific conditions, source documents and so on.
This system allows full traceability of batches and serial number from purchase to sale. Manufacturers can easily allocate batch numbers and track package movements in real-time.
3. Quality Control
In manufacturing, the quality control process is managed in all its aspects, from receiving raw materials to the production phase, the payments of semi-finished and finished products.
Our ERP system fulfils the requirements of Control and Quality Assurance, including advanced management of production and logistics, simplifying communication, data collection and data analysis.
Microsoft Dynamics offers highly flexible solutions for the manufacturing industry, simplifying business operations for all production requirements, without the need to integrate multiple applications or create alternative systems that allow specific processes.
