ERP: The Secret Sauce for Process Manufacturers

Enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions have proven benefits for process manufacturers. A study published by the Aberdeen Group found manufacturers that have implemented ERP are improving their inventory accuracy, experiencing faster month-close completions, meeting internal manufacturing schedules and shipping more orders complete and on time.

While most successful manufacturers use ERP, the study found 26 percent of manufacturers have yet to implement an ERP solution. The leading reason companies gave for falling behind the technology curve:  fear of the “burden” of the internal effort required to implement.

Are you in that 26 percent? As the study shows, there’s much you can gain from the change:

Companies with ERP Companies without ERP
Inventory Accuracy 97% 90%
Days to Close Month 3.4 6.5
Manufacturing Schedule Compliance 96% 88%
Complete & On-Time Shipments 98% 89%
