Fact Sheets – Manufacturing Software

As markets accelerate, so does the pace of change. New technologies and new customer demands increase the pressure on engineering to make process and component adjustments that accommodate such changes while maintaining or improving efficiencies and profitability. Engineering Change Management helps manufacturers organize and control this dynamic process.

Deliver complete, consistent, and current product information. Manage materials, components, and assemblies more precisely— including costs, locations, and routing sequences—to gain tighter control of finished goods, reduce costs, and increase productivity and profitability.

Track production costs in detail and manage work orders, routings, outsourcing, and work center definitions. By directing the entire cycle of order processing, you can build a business that is both customer-driven and profitable.

Material Requirements Planning helps you realize the control you need to compete. Deep visibility into material requirements translates into more effective resource planning—helping reduce stock outages, drive down inventory costs, and streamline the production process.

By allowing you to design testing procedures of incoming materials to meet your manufacturing process, Quality Assurance equips you to start with the quality of raw materials you require, and dramatically helps to reduce manufacturing delays, rework, and scrap.

Whenever you bring together people to accomplish a task, communication challenges may arise—especially when those people have different objectives and backgrounds. Your sales teams and manufacturing managers probably face these challenges—yet effective communication between these divergent groups is the first step to ensuring product delivery that’s both efficient and effective.
