Architecture-Centered Information Systems In The Manufacturing Domain - Part V - Applying the Methodology
Architecture bridges the semantic gap between the requirements and software. Application software systems must be architected in order to deal with the current

Discrete Manufacturing (ERP)

The simplified definition of enterprise resource planning (ERP) software is a set of applications that automate finance and human resources departments and help manufacturers handle jobs such as order processing and production scheduling. ERP began as a term used to describe a sophisticated and integrated software system used for manufacturing. In its simplest sense, ERP systems create interactive environments designed to help companies manage and analyze the business processes associated with manufacturing goods, such as inventory control, order taking, accounting, and much more. Although this basic definition still holds true for ERP systems, today its definition is expanding. Today’s leading ERP systems group all traditional company management functions (finance, sales, manufacturing, and human resources). Many systems include, with varying degrees of acceptance and skill, solutions that were formerly considered peripheral such as product data management (PDM), warehouse management, manufacturing execution system (MES), and reporting. During the last few years the functional perimeter of ERP systems began an expansion into its adjacent markets, such as supply chain management (SCM), customer relationship management (CRM), business intelligence/data warehousing, and e-business, the focus of this knowledge base is mainly on the traditional ERP realms of finance, materials planning, and human resources. The foundation of any ERP implementation must be a proper exercise of aligning customers'' IT technology with their business strategies, and subsequent software selection.

Two Origins, One Destination? A Look at the Two Main Genres of PLM Solution from the Integration Standpoint


There are two major genres of PLM solution: CAD-PLM and ERP-PLM. These two types have different integration capabilities, but the gap between them is shrinking thanks to various factors driving the market. Currently, however, the difference still matters in the solution selection process.

Autodesk to Bring Microsoft Business Solutions Closer to PLM


While the recent joining of complementary forces by Microsoft Business Solutions and Autodesk will make many heads turn, a lot more detail and clarifications are needed for the alliance to establish itself as an ERP-PLM superpower in the mid-market.

Challenges However, the alliance of the respective CAD and desktop and office networking applications leaders does not necessarily create a long-term combined ERP/PLM leader.
