When manufacturing and engineering are separated in your business, there’s a lot to manage. Want to break down the barriers between these two departments? Watch as manufacturing experts Earl Hasz and Dick Longoria explore how DELMIAWorks can help link engineering to manufacturing on one platform.
DELMIAWorks ERP, MES, and Quality Management Software (QMS) systems are part of the cloud-based 3DEXPERIENCE Works portfolio, they represent a much more affordable solution for manufacturers than traditional desktop or network enterprise systems because of the much smaller required investment in hardware. Plus, the added flexibility and scalability of a cloud-based platform will improve collaboration, manufacturing efficiency, and business agility, allowing manufacturers to rapidly scale up to support growth while simultaneously providing better service to customers.
The Benefits of ERP on the Cloud
ERP systems utilize software and technology to support the management of a manufacturing organization’s primary production and business processes, often providing information that reveals workflows that could be automated or made more efficient. Instead of providing information on business performance after the fact, an ERP system provides an integrated and continuously updated view of core business processes in real time.
By enabling manufacturers to track key business resource information—such as cash, raw materials, production capacity—and the status of business commitments—through orders, purchase orders, and payroll—ERP systems support the sharing of data across various departments (i.e., manufacturing, purchasing, sales, accounting, etc.).
By facilitating the flow of information among business and manufacturing functions—as well as with external stakeholders—an ERP system can reveal processes that are ripe for automation, saving a manufacturing organization substantial amounts of time, reducing production and related costs, and supporting and sustaining growth.
By using a cloud-based ERP system—such as the DELMIAWorks ERP system on the 3DEXPERIENCE Works portfolio—manufacturing organizations can connect key team members to the system from any location, on any device, and at any time of day. In addition to saving time, reducing costs, and supporting growth, using an ERP system like DELMIAWorks can result in a substantial reduction in IT costs. Because the platform is hosted in the cloud, there’s no need to install software, upgrade hardware, or conduct updates and fixes. With the applications residing on the cloud instead of on an individual user’s computer, all updates are conducted automatically and users only need a PC or mobile device to access and use the ERP system.
