It is impossible to grow to become a large manufacturer without using ERP to keep track of the operations. Manufacturing ERP must account for and manage the actual production processes and materials on the factory floor. Modern ERP solutions for manufacturing are becoming more focused in order to address industry-specific manufacturing issues right out of the box. With features being offered by vendors such as supply chain management, lean and mixed mode manufacturing, and advanced planning and scheduling, benefits that include reduced operating and labor costs, improved interaction with suppliers, faster lead-time, more efficient inventorying, greater data reliability, and higher productivity are guaranteed.
The manufacturing ERP domain is also being infiltrated by various trends such as the cloud, IoT, Mobility, Robotics, 3D printing and Analytics. Cloud-based ERP in particular is growing 10-plus times as fast as on-premise ERP and currently accounts for up to 27 percent of annual manufacturing IT budgets. The primary benefit of deploying ERP in the cloud is that it saves companies the time and cost of administering their ERP themselves on premise. The market is reacting to this as a transition is being witnessed from selling licenses to on-premise customers to selling cloud-based solutions, which include more social and mobile computing capabilities.
