The growth in the manufacturing sector lays the platform for the next era of global growth and innovation. The manufacturing sector’s role is changing - the way it contributes to the economy shifts as nations mature. In today's advanced economies, manufacturing promotes innovation, productivity, and trade. Globally, manufacturing continues to grow, accounting for approximately 16 percent of global GDP. The fast shift in trends of manufacturing processes and the rapid growth of the sector with technological innovations leaves it highly dependent on an efficient IT backbone support to streamline its processes. This is where an effective, efficient and robust ERP system comes into the picture as a sidekick for the manufacturing company to be able to compete globally and sustain in the fast-growing and challenging ecosystem.

The manufacturing sector is primarily categorized into Process Manufacturing and Discrete Manufacturing. Amidst many similarities between these two, the major difference lies in the complexity level of the manufacturing process itself – process manufacturing being more intrinsic with a higher number of stages involved during the manufacturing process. In this article, I am covering the Process Manufacturing industry’s need and thrust on IT-enabling the processes via an ERP solution - tailored to the needs of the business.

The very first step while deciding the implementation of an ERP for a Process manufacturing company would be asking this set of questions to identify the need and the key pain areas to be addressed:

  • Are frequent variations in recipes/formula keeping you away from delivering consistent yield?
  • Is your current system’s inability to organize warehouse into proper zones a cause for material mismanagement?
  • Does the inability to track material shelf life leads to quality variance or wastage or both?
  • Are substandard product deliveries to customers a result of poor batch/lot traceability?
  • Does inappropriate vendor rating affect the cost, quality and delivery timelines of supplies?
  • Does ineffective by-product & co-product management curtail your secondary revenues?

The solution to asked questions lies in implementing an ERP which will resolve the above problems in one go.

Process Manufacturing - Solution Architecture

ERP for Manufacturing Industry In India

 

Efficient Rejection Handling & Source Traceability, Quality Control and, By & Co Product Handling are the fundamental needs of a process manufacturing business. Moreover, the surge in global competitive pressure has made rapid order processing, well-managed cash flow, credit control & dealer network; inventory optimization; cost minimization and finite capacity planning imperative for survival.

Businesses, therefore, need to set up a single point of access for all sales related data, manufacturing information, purchase records and quality documentation to help them make better-informed decisions in the benefit of the organization.

Recipe management, Yield Maximization & Waste Minimization is the key to cost control. This necessitates the integration of core business processes at all levels to ensure compliance with definite procedures, quality parameters, and industry regulations.

FAQs

What does our organization need to prepare when we implement ERP?
To begin with the implementation, the first step is to create a concrete business plan. A well-defined organizational chart, different roles of each function and the process documentation/ accountability.
The next step is establishing a team of individuals who will act as SPOC between the management, end user, and the solution provider.
This team will also be accountable in signing off the necessary chart of accounts, vendor listings, customer listing, SKUs, reports or output expected by stakeholders, the accountability forms’ format and the configuration in general based on the organization’s process flow.


What is the timeframe in implementing an ERP?
The total time for completing the implementation process varies on the modules being implemented. As far as our experience speaks a single module of accounting takes about one month to be implemented, assuming the company knows what to expect and have the necessary data available right away.

Do you offer support in my local area?
Absolutely! Our headquarters are based out in Noida and we provide support in the local area as well as for our remote server implantations as well. We have our branches in Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad, Bangalore and Kolkata. Apart from the Indian territory we also provide support to our customers located in the US, UK, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Dubai among others.
How simple and easy it is to use Microsoft ERP for Manufacturing Industry?
The software is user-friendly and does not require any specified skills. After it is correctly implemented, and one has learned using any one of the main functions (e.g. Sales, purchase, work-in-process) you can easily configure all the functions. It is easy to transfer the familiarity of function or procedure in one area and then transfer that familiarity to other areas.


Do we need an Integrated Software?
Deploying a comprehensive ERP system across an organization leads to the performance increase, workflow synchronization, standardized information exchange formats, complete overview of the enterprise functioning, global decision optimization, speed enhancement and much more. Hence an ERP system is absolutely essential for a manufacturing unit.
