Manufacturing is a complex sector and the number of systems used to optimise and monitor the production process increases exponentially as technology advances. Manufacturers rely on these systems to adapt their products to consumer demands efficiently and profitably.
From Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) to plan and monitor the production process; to Sales & Operation Planning (S&OP) to optimise the Supply Chain; Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) to manage a product from its design to production, and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), which totally unites a company.
These systems are by no means secondary: they are required by a highly competitive market. To achieve their full potential, they must communicate and operate in an integrated way. And to do this, vast experience is required.
