Scheduling production operations is not as easy as most people think. Customers have deadlines, procurement needs lead time to gather raw materials from inventory or suppliers, and production has to be tooled properly for the next manufacturing process. Optimize your production schedule to get the most from profit margins and satisfy customer demands by using Epicor® ERP.
No matter what type of product you assemble or manufacture for customers, you need a team of employees to work together to satisfy customer demands. Your accounting team may want to control how much money you have to spend on inventory; procurement needs to find and order high quality, affordable inventory for production; and, production has to get the products made, packed, and shipped to the customer within a timely manner. That sounds much easier than it really is, especially if you rely on disparate software programs. Get your team on the fast-track by using an enterprise resource planning (ERP) software solution, like Epicor ERP (http://www.comtecsolutions.com/epicor_erp.html).
