Basic modules of an ERP system in the manufacturing industry

ERP systems enable manufacturing companies to manage all their processes by integrating all business functions. As a result, they drive business profitability and efficiency. It is essential for a manufacturing company to have at least the following modules to support its operations.

Financial and accounting management

Have a 360° view of your financial data. Control your operating costs. 

Customer relationship management

Manage your relationships and interactions with your customers and potential customers. 

Sales management

Manage your entire sales process, from estimating to demand management. Save time processing sales documents with electronic data interchange (EDI) functionality.

Supply chain management

Manage all your purchasing and sourcing operations. Get an overview of your stock levels and manage your inventory efficiently. 

 

Production management

Manage all your manufacturing activities, from work orders to lean production, with the manufacturing execution system. Control the quality of your products with the quality assurance modules and improve your operational efficiency.

Planning and scheduling

Use the system capabilities to synchronize all your planning activities: forecasting, production planning, smart demand planning, requirements planning, scheduling, and resource management. Use advanced modules to obtain the most reliable predictive data that considers constraints for optimal planning and scheduling. Evaluate and revise your plans with built-in simulations. 

Human capital management

Human capital management refers to the practices and methods used to attract, recruit, train, develop, manage and retain employees to achieve business objectives.

Product management

Product configuration. Product cost estimation. Product lifecycle management. Create BOMs, and routings, manage routing revisions and integrate CAD software with ERP for efficient collaboration between engineering and production. 2D, 3D engineering drawing visualization. Parts list visualization. 

We often meet with manufacturing clients whose ERP systems need to be better adapted to production activities. For example, these systems may be excellent for tracking financial transactions but offer less functionality for machine management or shop floor workflows. If the system can be used to its full potential by adding additional modules or extensions, the problem can be easily solved for these customers. However, if it is necessary to upgrade to a new system, there are several elements to consider, as this involves costs and change management. This is why the choice of a system must be taken seriously and by the company's overall needs.
