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 functionality, these systems will not likely converge anytime soon, because they use different technologies and have different user requirements.

what are typical manufacturing overhead rates  of MES Vendor Community What may be a critical flaw of the MES vendor community is that it has not clearly defined the functions of MES solutions. MES itself does not have a broadly accepted meaning, especially among discrete, continuous, and batch process industries. When a provider declares itself to be a MES vendor, often all it is really saying that it is not an ERP, enterprise asset management (EAM), or an open control system (OCS) vendor. Consequently, the user is left to guess exactly what the Read More

Also, what if a manufacturing company's salespeople are paid on the volume of purchase orders, and continue to sell under heavy discounts or by overpromising nonexistent features to customers? The company's profits will likely dwindle quickly as a result. There have been many examples of companies paying immense sales commissions to their sales forces (who, to be fair, have all reached their quotas, albeit inadvertently set wrong by their superiors), even as the companies Read More

Best Manufacturing Scheduling Systems


The market place is awash with many kinds of manufacturing scheduling systems. Due to the dynamic nature of the manufacturing shop floor, it is of utmost importance that a manufacturing scheduling system can take care of these dynamic conditions.

In the execution part, an event system is defined and whenever there are deviations in timelines or if there are inventory violations, an event is generated. This event is read by the planning and scheduling part of the system and rescheduling is done automatically by the system. Of course, the user has already set the rules for rescheduling (how much deviation from timelines, inventory violations, business objectives like service Read More

How to Achieve Lean Manufacturing

what are typical manufacturing overhead rates  identified, companies must determine what activities are value-adding, what activities are non-value-adding but essential to the business (e.g., payroll), and what activities are non-value adding and non-essential to the business. The impact that necessary, non-value adding activities have on the value stream must be minimized, while non-value adding, non-necessary activities must be eliminated from the process. To that end, a value stream mapping (VSM), which is a logical diagram of every step involved Read More

Manufacturing Strategy: An Adaptive Perspective


Adaptive manufacturing enables companies to produce goods efficiently and manage variability proactively. However, it must be managed as an end-to-end, closed-loop process with tight linkages between manufacturing applications, adjacent enterprise applications, and—most importantly—the technology behind these applications. Such integrated networks enable the process visibility and collaboration capabilities that, ultimately, are the key to building an adaptive manufacturing enterprise.
