Today’s Manufacturing Challenges

The manufacturing industry is a notoriously difficult industry in which to remain competitive, particularly in the modern, globalised, digital economy. Software such as Dynamics, configured for manufacturing organisations, can be used to overcome common problems facing small to medium manufacturing businesses today.

Changing Consumers: the ability to anticipate demand, predict potential problems and meet changing consumer needs in a profitable manner
Changing Regulations: Change is inevitable, so a business needs easy-to-use software that can adapt quickly to industry changes
Global Sourcing: greater access to markets around the world means organisations need favourable locations, closer to natural resources
Legacy Systems: out of date legacy systems at a disadvantage in a fast-paced environment with resources spread over multiple, ageing systems
Manual Processes: employees learning and manually updating multiple systems with weak functionality, leads to inefficiency and poor productivity
Global Forces: pressure to do more with less – adjusting to a fast changing environment & global market place – keep costs down and productivity up
Control & Visibility: trouble dealing with complex products, long lead-times and routine processes whilst accurately estimating, judging and informing customers on order progress
