Discrete manufacturing is making items that usually involve fabrication and/or assembly
of components into a finished good, including industries such as electronics, furniture,
automotive suppliers, industrial products, medical devices, metal fabrication and
The greatest revenue and profit improvement opportunities for discrete manufacturers
today are being driven either by performance improvement initiatives, such as Six
Sigma or Lean Manufacturing, or focusing on supply chain improvements. Many companies
are seeking to leverage all of these concepts at the same time to improve their
competitiveness. Information technology can be a powerful, often essential enabler
for these types of transformation projects. For example, Internet-based technologies
such as a supplier extranet can dramatically cut down on lead times by improving
vendor visibility into your supply chain.
Microsoft Dynamics helps you plan your resources to get the greatest efficiency
out of your production process. You can track production progress and easily make
changes to increase efficiency and reduce costs. Real-time updating of resource
data helps to manage capacity and optimize your resource use, to drive down production
costs and get more accurate delivery dates. Apart from this, the in-depth functionalities
in financial management, supply chain management, human resource management and
customer relationship management (CRM) help a discrete manufacturing enterprise
build a competitive edge.
Alletec, through its experience in implementing Microsoft Dynamics NAV and AX for
discrete manufacturing industries, has delivered high business value to these enterprises.
Competitiveness and efficiency are more important now than at any time in the history
of the automotive industry. Automotive manufacturers are pressed to keep prices
low while coming out with multiple new models that excite the market place. To be
successful, suppliers to major automotive companies have to transform their businesses
to become lean operations that are driven by demand and are focused on lowering
the overall costs of their products.
To meet many of such challenges, suppliers have to continually improve product quality
while lowering costs. One way to do this is to increase the flexibility of design,
manufacturing, financial and customer relationship management (CRM) solutions. With
the right technology in place, manufacturers can run these systems in ways
that will improve operations within their own walls, open visibility in the supply
chain and increase competitiveness.
