ERP for series production – integrated standard system for series manufacturers

ERP for the specialized requirements of series manufacturing

When manufacturing large quantities of a product in series production, you need all of your processes to be coordinated perfectly. This is why series manufacturers benefit from ERP systems that guarantee a seamless exchange of information along the entire process chain and map all business processes in an integrated way – from the bidding process to supply chain management, manufacturing, and logistics, to invoicing and service.

Having completed numerous successful projects for series manufacturers, we understand the challenges of the industry in detail.

ORDAT’s ERP solutions help you:

  • ´to plan and control your processes in an integrated way
  • Ihre Produktions- und Personalkapazitäten optimal zu nutzen
  • to communicate more efficiently with suppliers and customers
  • to react more quickly to changing requirements
  • Improving your competitive standing

Take full control of your processes: By providing consistent integration of production, purchasing, sales, warehousing, materials planning, shipping, complaint management, and bookkeeping, ERP solutions from ORDAT offer maximum transparency.

Manage purchasing, resources, and capacities efficiently

ERP solutions from ORDAT support series manufacturers in scheduling operations and materials handling, and in controlling their business processes – even on a company-wide basis. Seamless EDI integration ensures flexibility and speed. Powerful planning and analytic tools add security and stability to your processes – such as production planning which takes into account machines, work stations, and material situations. This allows you to produce more efficiently, shorten your lead times, and save resources.

Transparency and control

Thanks to advanced controlling tools – from advance, ongoing, and post costing to product profitability results – you will be able to recognize cost deviations early on and effectively counteract them. And series and batch administration allows you to trace your products back to your materials suppliers.
