Knowing how solid sales and revenue pipelines are and whether each order can be fulfilled on time is dominating the minds of manufacturing leaders today. One of the most valuable lessons learned over the last nine months of operating during the pandemic was getting visibility into revenue and product forecasts early and often and making sure shop floors could flex to changes in demand fast. These factors and more are driving greater ERP adoption from the shop floor to the top floor.
Of the many manufacturing CFOs I’ve spoken with over the last twelve months, one clear message emerges: they want visibility down to the shop floor level to know what’s going on with margins, costs, orders, and aftermarket revenue. Getting to that level of visibility and control requires anERP systemthat relies on a single database that also spans the制造执行系统(MES), Quality Management System (QMS),仓库管理系统（WMS）和ERP平台的其他模块。
ERP systems that excel at providing the visibility and control needed from the shop floor to the top floor don’t require 3rd party integrations, provide for a seamless information flow, digitally transform production operations with one system, and most importantly, support multiple manufacturing types with pre-built workflows. In short, the purpose-built design of the DELMIAworks 2020 platform and its support for 21 pre-built manufacturing types has evolved over decades of development to provide shop floor to top floor visibility and control of manufacturing operations and his shown below:
Key Lessons Learned From My Conversations With Manufacturing CFOs
CFOs also provided the following insights into why they’re choosing to replace both homegrown and decades-old ERP systems with new systems capable of providing better shop floor to top floor visibility. The following are the key insights from my interviews with them:
- Finance, Manufacturing Operations, Sales, and Executive Management are the four most influential departments driving ERP adoption in manufacturing today.Manufacturers’ highest priority is safeguarding employees’ health and welfare on the shop floor while providing greater cost, revenue, backlog, shipment status, and cost variance analyses to financial teams, including the CFO.
- 根据最近的一项调查，制造业在采用销售规划，移动设备支持，物联网（物联网）传感器技术和实时监控方面占据其同行行业。T.Aken一起，所有这些技术都需要一个统一的ERP系统来协调它们，以实现更高的生产效率和质量。销售规划在制造中是必不可少的，因为它提供了所需的数据，用于获得单位预测，每个产品，每个订单以及整体收入和盈利预测。移动设备支持在2020年成为必须实现业务连续性，因为大流行强迫制造商远程运行。许多人能够使用移动设备支持，保护他们的生产中心的生产中心，在过程中保护其工作人员的健康。2020年期间的业务连续性经验教训转化为制造商的紧迫性，以获得制造业务的更大的财务知名度，进一步使移动设备支持对运营至关重要。基于事物互联网（物联网）的传感器正在采用实时生产和过程监控。这些调查结果来自Dresner咨询服务最近的报告，Dresner咨询服务最近发表了研究研究，BI，数据和制造中的分析状态(client access reqd).
- 提高生产中心内部的车间可视性和控制，并在供应链中具有更大的轨道和可追溯性，增加ERP采用，并在商店地板到顶层的多个角色。ERP systems deliver the greatest value when Line Managers can access real-time data and troubleshoot problems on the shop floor. Line Managers rely on advanced manufacturing metrics from ERP systems to do their jobs, making Real-Time Monitoring essential for keeping shop floors operating on schedule.
