ERP for Mill-based and Material Converting Environments

The ERP for Mill-based and Material Converting Environments knowledge base focuses on a range of industrial activities that add value to raw materials by processing them into a form suitable for further manufacturing or for immediate end-use. These activities include traditional mills that turn grain into flour or extract sucrose from sugar cane; the spinning and weaving mills of the textiles and carpets sectors; the rolling plants of steel, aluminum, and other metals semi-fabricators; to the continuous outputs of paper and board mills.

CAD-centric PLM, ERP-centric PLM, and Organic PLM: What's Right for You? - Part 3


Part 1 of this blog series started with the assertion that product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions are becoming increasingly important to enterprises in a strategic sense. However, not all PLM products are created equal, especially in light of their different origins. I then explored the advantages and weaknesses of the first group of PLM solutions: those coming from stalwart

These two PLM vendors have approached their technology platform as a loosely coupled set of services, and their approach is not monolithic. The idea is for companies to use what they need, federate to legacy systems, leverage their existing investments, and achieve greater functionality and more flexibility. These vendors layer more specific PLM processes (e.g., supplier compliance, mechanical parts, electronic Read More

Primary Metal Manufacturing


The primary metal manufacturing industry includes manufacturers of iron, aluminum, steel, titanium, copper, and other metals—with steel representing the largest segment of the market by far. The industry also includes manufacturers and processors in related industries like automotive manufacturing, machinery manufacturing, and construction. Challenges for primary metal manufacturers are rooted in the highly competitive nature of the market, volatile global economic conditions, and the need to constantly employ new technologies to bring high-quality products to market. Manufacturers in this industry also require large amounts of ore and energy for their manufacturing processes.

Selecting PLM Software Solutions Part 4 - Comparing 3 Vendors


In PLM, there is no single vendor that can meet all of the requirements, and the market is still immature, so almost every product can be the right solution provided a certain set of requirements. In this part of the article we review 3 vendors who offer products to the PLM market - IDe, Thetis, and PDMware - as a demonstration that selecting the appropriate solution is highly dependant on the prioritized needs of the business.

This indicates that those clients whose businesses rely heavily on managing the new product development and commercialization processes, but don't require strong engineering and PDM tools, will want to be sure to include IDe in their technology selection.

Manufacturing Software for an Integrated Steel Plant


Manufacturing processes for an integrated steel plant typically encompass three distinct types of manufacturing: flow manufacturing, process manufacturing, and mill manufacturing, meaning that such a plant is effectively a mixed-mode manufacturer. Software systems for these manufacturers' diverse needs are of critical importance. Learn about specific software capabilities you should be looking for.

ERP for Fashion Industries


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.
