ERP in the wire and cable industry
Software provider Cimteq has added a new entry to its collection of industry white papers: ERP in the Wire and Cable Industry. Defined as seamlessly integrating multiple business processes simultaneously, ERP (enterprise resource planning) can boost efficiency, lower costs and secure more business.
Ken Jones, marketing manager at Cimteq, said,
As always, we aim to provide insightful and practical advice to the wire and cable manufacturing industry. This latest paper focuses on ERP, allowing readers to see how ERP integrates into other wire and cable software to ensure robust and future-proof operations.
Manufacturing business models need to incorporate the significant changes in business processes brought about by the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), smart factories,
big data, cloud-based infrastructures and robust business intelligence, and implementing ERP is one such opportunity.
Some of these benefits provided by ERP systems within the manufacturing environment include data management, production planning, sales and purchasing, and order fulfillment and delivery. ERP can also enable increased efficiency, enhanced productivity, improvements in supply chain interactions and improved warehouse and transport functions.
Mr Jones continued,
There are ERP systems on the market that have been developed specifically for the wire and cable industry, ensuring that the complex processes and intricacies of the industry are managed with ease and accuracy. Furthermore, these ERP systems integrate seamlessly with cable design and MES software programs like our own CableBuilder Enterprise and CableMES.
