ERP for Manufacturing: What you need to know

Managing a manufacturing business is a arduous task with multiple stakeholders, approvals, chain of command, incomplete production data.
We examine how ERP helps solve these burgeoning problems.

All Manufacturing ERP solutions are centralized, all departments of the organisation can access and view the production data in real time. For instance, the engineering team can monitor the progress of the production floor and update the purchasing to finance departments about the requirement of additional raw materials.

Most Manufacturing setups have to focus on getting these right with a robust ERP system in place viz.
