Common Challenges for the Manufacturing Industry and How ERP Delivers
Enterprise Resource Planning has long been used by product-based businesses like those in the manufacturing industry to plan for demand, ensure raw materials are available to production, manage the manufacturing process, maintain revisions, and track the financials. Modern ERP goes above and beyond, providing a flexible and easy to use solution that delivers visibility across the organization.
At Cortekx, we help our manufacturing clients to use business management software to address the following challenges:
Outmaneuver your larger competitors by changing processes, techniques, designs, and volumes on the fly. Find out how cloud ERP can help.
Challenge: Controlling Increasing Complexity
Manufacturing is getting more and more complex. Customers want more variety, more sophistication, and they need it faster. However, it can be easy to lose control of all this complexity. Multi-level bills of material, multiple revisions, and an evolving product lifecycle—manufacturers need an easy and accurate way to track the design, assembly, fabrication, and more.
How Cortekx and ERP Gives Manufacturers More Control
For manufacturers, control means having accurate information and making good decisions. The right ERP solution can provide manufacturers with a complete and accurate picture of their data, allowing them to adapt, improve, and grow.
Challenge: Improving Product Costing Accuracy and Efficiency
Product costing must be integral to engineering and operations for accuracy and validity. Raw materials, purchased items, consumable supplies, labor, fixed and variable production overhead. Manufacturers need to present an accurate estimate, take control of their own product costs, and remain flexible in the wake of changes.
How Cortekx and ERP Makes Costing More Efficient
Product costing technology is a key component of manufacturing ERP, helping manufacturers gain more accuracy by taking advantage of revision management, take control over material, subassemblies, work instructions, tools, and overhead costs, and ultimately use these tools to keep costs in check.
Challenge: Bringing Together Information from Across the Business
You can’t make decisions on what you can’t track. Every component of your manufacturing operation generates a lot of data, and with the increased use of Internet of Things technology, it can get very easy to drown in the deluge of data. Today’s manufacturers need high-quality information, not just data, if they want to make decisions that enable growth.

Challenge: Collaborating Beyond Your Own Business
It’s impossible to be agile if you’re not in the know. The supply chain is more connected than ever, and manufacturers need to fit into this. From ordering materials to paying vendors, sending to distributors to collecting payments, you need to bring in data and collaborate across the supply chain.

Because Acumatica allows unlimited users, there is no barrier to including supply chain partners – suppliers, outside processors, distributors, and even end-user customers – in your collaborative environment through portals to inquire, order, or simply communicate.
Challenge: Planning for What’s Next
Today’s manufacturing business can’t be reactive. Planning is essential, and effective planning processes allow you to purchase materials, schedule machines and people, and manage inventory. Staying proactive in manufacturing requires you to take expected customer demands, combine it with purchase planning and production schedules, and ultimately end up with a finished product.
How Cortekx and ERP Helps You Remain Proactive
Today’s manufacturer needs an integrated solution that includes production control, purchasing, and inventory management, connects it with demand management, forecasting, master scheduling, material planning (MRP), and capacity planning, and makes it easy to make decisions. Cortekx helps manufacturers leverage the right solution to connect, plan, and execute, driving higher customer satisfaction while reducing costs.
