Considering MRP for Manufacturing? Download this whitepaper: THE ROI OF MRP: HOW ERP TECHNOLOGY CAN HELP MANUFACTURERS SAVE MILLIONS

Are you using spreadsheets for manufacturing demand planning because you find them easier to use than your ERP system? The goal of every manufacturer is to get more supply and demand control by optimizing inventory levels. To accomplish this goal, most successful manufacturers agree that ERP technology is essential. What is ERP technology? Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) refers to a total business management solution that integrates data for all operations and processes allowing for automation, mobile access and more. Today most small to mid-sized manufacturers rely on ERP solutions and sometimes MRP to optimize inventory levels. Explore more about MRP automation best practices in further detail below:

Modern Manufacturing Software and the Future of the Supply Chain

May 21, 2020 / 0 Comments / in Manufacturing ERP Software, Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, Manufacturing Solution / by Nancy Phillippi

How to build an intelligent supply chain with modern manufacturing software

The future of the supply chain is dramatically changing. The supply chain is a complex network that includes the manufacturer, distributor, and consumer of the final product. Today, change is driven by technology, access to data across the entire network and changing consumer expectations and demands. In the future, this will look dramatically different from today. On the manufacturing side, there are 5 factors responsible for evolving the way manufacturers design, produce, sell, source and supply products. Manufacturing companies that leverage technology gain a competitive edge. Manufacturers must make changes to adapt to market demands, compete and evolve with technology in order to get prepared for the future.

What role does AI and manufacturing software play in the Factory of the Future? Free eBook by Microsoft 

Last year, Microsoft released an eBook Factory of the Future - Achieving digital excellence in manufacturing, today.  One hot topic for manufacturers is how to leverage Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology to help automate operations. In manufacturing, automation is key to reducing costs and increasing productivity. The potential for AI applications in the manufacturing environment is huge. AI is a combination of machine learning algorithms that can assess the data and make complex decisions. These algorithms can be applied to discover meaningful patterns which are capable of applying to a variety of applications in the manufacturing process. The possibilities are endless!    

Our previous blog provides an excellent summary of this Factory of the Future article.  In this blog, we will dive deeper into AI and it's implications on the manufacturing industry.  Manufacturing software combined with AI has the power to quickly analyze, predict, and implement commands directly to the factory floor. In a manufacturing environment, the applications for AI are limitless. The best part is that manufacturers don’t have to wait for the future because it’s a reality today!
