Struggling with Your ERP System? You Need an MES

In the age of real-time technology, MES, IoT and Artificial Intelligence (AI), there are many technology solutions for the apparel manufacturers. ERP is one such most common tool manufacturers can’t avoid this. Manufacturing companies invest in ERPs in the hope that it would help them integrate all business processes into a single system. The expectation is to streamline all processes by deploying an integrated system so that all business goals are achieved efficiently. However, the reality of ERP is very different. 

Most of the ERP users experience one of the following difficulties.

Post-mortems instead of Real Time Actions

Normally, ERP systems are not designed to be “real-time” applications. They will not be able to grasp the fast and dynamic actions within the shop floor as their intended purpose is to store and share information as opposed to providing statistics on the current situation within the factory.

System Doesn’t Grow with the Business

As the business starts growing the challenges start increasing. ERPs are not designed to support such dynamic changes. A flexible system has to capture the shop floor functions in real time and provide intelligent data, in order for the companies to cater to the ever-expanding business needs.

Can an ERP system Support you to take Intelligent Business Decisions?

While being one of the most important systems in a Manufacturing setup, an ERP is only there to enable effective office-based functions to operate swiftly and efficiently.

It can tell you “why” something had to be done in a certain way (strategic decisions), while you would need a Manufacturing execution systems (MES) to decide “when to” and “how to” do something (operational decisions).

Technically, there is a lot more in MES than data storage and reporting as it provides event-driven tracking. MES allows companies to track and monitor just about every aspect of their manufacturing processes.

A Manufacturing Execution System (MES) is what helps the factories collect and distribute real-time data without disrupting their existing processes. It also gives the visibility of the factory and its operation to all levels within the organization. PO reconciliation capabilities, end to end traceability, reducing wastage, critical path management, reducing time-to-market are added benefits of introducing an MES to a manufacturing plant.
