The Manufacturing sectors faces continually changing business process, data and requirements which make it nearly impossible for a typical, inflexible ERP system to keep pace with what the business really needs.
Customers are reducing the number of suppliers with which they do business. They are choosing the best and strongest. Most manufacturers look to the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system to enhance organizations overall performance. In many cases, the original drivers that let to an ERP selection were to streamline and simplify business processes fo a sustainable competitive advantage.
In most of the cases, implementation miss the mark, and instead of delivering promise cost reduction, business agility and performance improvements, ERP systems create, complexity, duplication of efforts and in the worst cases, poor quality and customer service, and dangerous lack of visibility in to the business.
Your data is “locked up” within your out-dated ERP system and is difficult to access, analyze for decision making. Worse yet, engineering and design, quality management, EDI, customer orders and release, accounting all reside in “silos” of information that exists independently of each other.
A silo environment increases complexity and ensures duplication of efforts with different versions of the truth, which compromises the quality, reliability and accessability of vital information.
With the raising ERP solution maintenance fees, you are not in control of IT expenditures. Some of the biggest ERP vendors, consistently raise maintenance fees, which increases the total cost of ownership overtime.
Technical differences among a range of applications also required the hiring of experts to implement and maintain the various applications. Also it is difficult to access the real-time data on travel.
