Improving Manufacturing Processes with an ERP

“Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore…” This is the feeling many manufacturing companies are beginning to have as a new generation starts to take on leadership positions within companies. One thing that has been brought on by this generational shift is the implementation of technology in manufacturing. Not just for technology advancement in actual production – like advancements in machinery and robotics – but in software and systems that companies organize their processes on. Improving manufacturing productivity with an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system or other database management system has become a common shift.

Nylacarb’s Implementation of an ERP

At Nylacarb, we wanted something that worked extremely effectively for our specific needs. Last year, we customized and implemented an ERP (enterprise resource planning) / DBMS (Database Management System) to do exactly that.

Improving manufacturing productivity with an ERP has touched many different departments within our company. It has improved processes, communication, logging, and efficiency across the production floor.

Practical Process Improvements from ERP Implementation for Manufacturing

We now track the progress of a project using the ERP system. Projects are tracked from the conception of a design, through quoting, receipt of purchase order, production run, inventory or secondary operations, and shipping. Knowing this real-time progress of a project is helpful for planning production runs, reducing machine downtime, and optimizing communication and efficiency across departments.

Additionally, improving manufacturing processes with an ERP has also included: documentation of mold maintenance or repairs, machine or equipment maintenance or repairs, equipment cleaning and handling procedure tracking, and quality control check logging and tracking. This creates a lot more ease for auditing or pulling records for maintenance, quality, or any other typical manufacturing function.
