Transparent ERP solution for mechanical engineering

ERP for Special Mechanical EngenieeringIn mechanical engineering it´s important to produce efficient and in constant quality. Futher there are numerous regulatory requirements regarding safety requirements (such as ISO standards) that service providers in mechanical engineering must comply with. Efficient management of the company, however, is often much more difficult, because usually each division has its own single solution in use and no uniform database exists.

This is where the ERP system for mechanical engineering comes into play: it takes all these points into account and, in addition, makes it possible to exploit all the benefits of modern Industry 4.0 and digitization. Automated processes, real-time reporting, predictive maintenance, improved quality management, and detailed enterprise metrics take your business to the next level of digital transformation.

Of course, the software grows together with your company, because the modular structure allows the expansion of the functionality even during or after the implementation phase.

Shorten set-up times in metalworking

metalworking industryThe metalworking industry faces many challenges: the exhaustion of high-quality raw materials, increasingly complex supply chains, international trade agreements and conventions, or the shortage of skilled staff are just a few. With the growing amount of production resources such as machinery, materials, manpower, and tools, and the increasing complexity of parts lists, guaranteeing accurate customer delivery dates also becomes a major challenge. It is therefore all the more important to re-evaluate your own company and to use optimization opportunities in order to remain competitive.

For example, with a suitable metalworking ERP system, you can improve your company's resource planning, reduce setup times, quickly calculate product costs and selling prices for a more accurate quotation. Additionally it´s possible to monitor your business performance in real time at any time and manage easily external subcontractors from planning through production to distribution.
