Discrete manufacturing helps manufacturing professionals do more with less. What if we added business process modeling for ERP? What would the benefits be? Let’s find out.
ERP and Business Process Modeling
Reading a great article in Columbus Manufacturing, I found some interesting insights brought up for manufacturers. Here’s what I think are three things to help those with ERP from the article.
Save time – For those in advanced discrete manufacturing, it’s important to not just dive into production. You need to plan out what you do and allow it. This helps determine the scope of work and reduces scrambling, since you already have everything planned out.
Strong ROI – Positive ROI is important in advanced discrete manufacturing. If you don’t meet your goals or end up costing more than you put out, you are stuck with negative ROI. With business process modeling, you realize the potential of the project faster; that gives you a better grasp and more, positive ROI.
Costs – When it comes to costs, you can save them, with business process modeling. Use premade manufacturing setups for common options and create templates for others. This minimizes time and that translates into costs reduction for your organization.
As stated in the Columbus article, it’s important to remember some key things that help ERP with business process modeling. These are time, positive ROI and costs. If you keep these in mind, you’ll go far.
