Boost Growth Through Enhanced Manufacturing Efficiency
The manufacturing landscape is intricate and often plagued by inefficiencies that can hinder progress. Frequent misconfigurations of machines and tooling lead to unnecessary wastage, while the commencement of jobs without the availability of upstream materials ties up valuable resources. Additionally, expensive capital equipment remains underutilized. These inefficiencies contribute to elevated costs associated with rush orders, unproductive changeovers, and increased scrap levels, ultimately driving up prices. This, in turn, diminishes a company’s competitive edge against more agile manufacturers or lower-cost foreign competitors.
Enter Acumatica Manufacturing Edition – An integrated suite of applications meticulously crafted to eradicate inefficiencies through the power of automation and actionable business insights:
- Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning: Within the manufacturing realm, numerous processes are redundant, predictable, and demand manual intervention. Acumatica’s platform is intricately designed to support artificial intelligence and machine learning, allowing for the partial or complete automation of current and future processes. This not only saves valuable time but also enhances data accuracy.
- Material Availability: Harness the capabilities of demand forecasts and Material Requirements Planning (MRP) to maintain optimized inventory levels aligned with manufacturing plans. Identify critical material issues and employ hard allocations to ensure materials are available for production well before the job is scheduled.
- Automate Transactions: Streamline operations by utilizing back flushing to automate material issues and labour entry transactions, resulting in significant time savings. Embrace technologies such as bar codes, RFID tags, and warehouse automation for swift and accurate data capture on the shop floor.
- Manufacturing Insights: Uncover and address material-related issues through MRP exception messages. Keep a vigilant eye on job progress by monitoring planned cost versus actual cost variances and quantity reporting. Maximize the utilization of capital equipment with insightful reports on machine and work centre utilization, coupled with finite capacity scheduling.
Incorporating Acumatica Manufacturing Edition into your operations is not just a minor technological upgrade; it’s a strategic move towards operational excellence and sustained growth.
