Ultra Consultants joins with IQMS, developers of Manufacturing ERP, to present an informative webinar taking place Thursday, Nov. 29 at 2PM ET that helps teams optimize supply chain operations, and cut costs by increasing access to quality data that improves decisions and streamlines audits.
Presented in conjunction with APICS, the session outlines how to improve operations when data processes constrained in silos are integrated across organizations.
Your ERP, supply chain, MES and quality systems gather and store hundreds or thousands of data points every day.
For companies using standalone, legacy and homegrown systems, it’s difficult to get a cohesive picture of supply chain performance.
Manufacturers tell us one of the greatest benefits of having Supply Chain Management (SCM) integrated with their ERP systems is the ability to excel at passing audits from customers and regulatory agencies
- How to excel by taking an integrated approach to Supply Chain Management, MES, Compliance and Quality Management to improve production efficiency and streamline audits.
- Methods to set strategic KPIs that function as an early warning system, providing insight into current or potential problems that may affect revenue or customer satisfaction.
- Lessons learned from those teams that leverage enterprise technology to optimize supply chain performance
