Software for Project Manufacturing
There are different types of manufacturing, but none more complicated than project based manufacturing. What makes this such a high risk industry is that finished items may not have touched the drawing board, yet a price will already have been given, leaving your business to absorb any additional cost that may occur. When a project depends on so many different factors operating in the right way, the risk of getting things wrong is often exceedingly high, especially at the planning stage.
When the success or failure of your company depends entirely on the accuracy of your Project Planning, are you satisfied that you are doing everything possible to reduce business risk?
Microsoft Dynamics AX project manages and controls manufacturing operations with ease and precision. Centralised project data means information is available across the entire enterprise so that running costs remain accurate and invoices align naturally with project schedules.
Through in-built LEAN principles, wasted time and bottlenecks are identified early, releasing spare capacity, highlighting idle resources and ensuring project adherence is continual.
Dynamics AX also manages production time by presenting the user with a continual 360° vision of the entire production platform, no matter how complex, to determine the optimum resource utilisation.
Production and Capacity Planning
At the heart of any Manufacturing process is a Production Planner, steadily maintaining the equilibrium between supply and demand in an environment where both political and economic uncertainty exists. Sales predictions are often far from accurate, which leads to increased purchase exposure, idle machinery and under utilised production resources. Receiving orders, but feeling uncertain as to whether you can deliver as promised is not ideal. Knowing what workload you can facilitate comfortably is about knowing your capacity constraints. There will always be elements that let us down, but when this happens, it’s how you handle the mishap and stay on track that keeps customers loyal. When communicating with customers, obtaining informed and detailed information with regards to calculating what resource will be needed, availability of stock and whether you have any immediate constraints will determine whether you should take on the work now or defer it.
Microsoft Dynamics AX not only allows you to maintain a calm production flow over a continual 360° view of your business, but provides the user with a choice and an ability to simulate the effect of an under/over sales prediction to the likely outcome using Production Planning Software.
Production Planning Software functionality continually judges how many items are required to mirror estimated sales demand, highlighting shortages within the BOM, resource and skills well in advance which ensures adherence to delivery promises.
