Internationalization and new technologies have raised consumer expectations around the world. Greater flexibility is needed to meet increasing demands for smart, individualized products.
The pace of change in manufacturing has never been so high. To meet new demands and remain competitive, you need faster responses, state-of-the-art technology, and connected processes from production planning and control to material requirements planning (MRP) and logistics. At the same time, you need to ensure full traceability and documentation to comply with strict regulations.
More demanding customers, automation and machine-level connectivity or the industrial Internet of Things (IoT): Legacy ERP systems are being pushed to their limits and manufacturers are struggling to keep pace.

Modern technologies and trends, such as 3D printing and machine-to-machine communication, give rise to new opportunities. Through mass customization and sensors, you can manufacture smart, individualized products that boost customer satisfaction. With manufacturing execution systems, integration, and analytics, you gain greater visibility, can make predictions, and ultimately optimize manufacturing processes.
Machine-to-machine (M2M) communication is transforming traditional business models by connecting physical assets and devices with digital systems in extensive business networks. This allows rapid exchange of data, enables connected manufacturing processes, and offers all-new opportunities for manufacturers and suppliers to offer value-added services.
Production facilities generate huge volumes of data. To unlock the potential of big data, manufacturers require advanced analytics. With the right solutions, you can gain new insights into your manufacturing operations and enhance your processes – from production planning to aftersales service. By accurately forecasting demand, you can optimize inventory levels.
Manufacturing automation software provides a crucial competitive edge in discrete industries. Connecting your machines to ERP and manufacturing execution systems enables you to create a smart factory. You can monitor data from your machines and production line in real-time and rapidly respond to any issues such as bottlenecks.
Manufacturing execution systems are the backbone of production facilities, enabling you to track, monitor, and control your manufacturing operations. This gives you greater visibility into processes, helps improve product quality and throughput, and provides greater traceability. By integrating your MES with other important business systems, such as ERP, you can extend these benefits and optimize manufacturing processes throughout your enterprise.
