Choosing the best manufacturing software


Manufacturers face an environment that’s rich in opportunity and highly demanding at the same time. As a result, they can come across a number of challenges, from meeting compliance demands and growing sustainability, to navigating shifting demand patterns.

Discrete manufacturing

Discrete manufacturers assemble products such as automotive, aerospace or electrical parts. To better manage your business and supply chain as a discrete manufacturer, you need visibility and insight into things like costs and inventory.

Process manufacturing

In addition to manufacturing type, businesses should select an ERP that’s been designed with their specific requirements in mind, matching their size and scalability. Keep in mind that some ERPs are especially designed for the needs of small businesses, which means you’re not having to pay extra for modules or functions that your enterprise doesn’t require.
