In the highly competitive global market of today, the need to provide highly customized products is causing companies to rethink their manufacturing strategies. With the emergence of new manufacturing technology, companies of all sizes can adapt in order to succeed, and the decision for some to migrate from centralized manufacturing to decentralized plants is critical to that success.
There are so many choices available that it can be difficult for manufacturing firms to choose the ERP solution that is right for them. Do you go with a familiar vendor even if they are new to cloud ERP? Do you believe the hype about hosted solutions? Or do you hedge your bets and go with a hybrid legacy-cloud ERP system that does little to solve the problems inherent in on-premise ERP? The best answer is none of the above. Only a true cloud solution comprising a comprehensive ecosystem of products tailored to your specific needs will deliver the cloud ERP advantages that will help your enterprise succeed.
Most current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) are regulated by the FDA under the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 21 CFR. These apply to food, pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers. Companies working in such 21 CFR regulated industries are well aware of how important compliance is. They are required to self-certify their own products to be compliant with an applicable standard, based on a quality control testing program. If not, they face consequences.
According to analyst firm Gartner, “The net result of 15 years of continuous customization is that these ERP implementations are now extremely arthritic, incredibly slow and expensive to change.” The original single, integrated, on-premise ERP system “is being replaced by the emergence of cloud point solutions that deliver functionality business users want that the IT-controlled and centrally-mandated ERP mega-suite previously struggled to deliver,” Gartner analysts wrote.
We’re hearing a lot about the cloud these days. Everything from personal data to entire industries, especially manufacturing, are moving to cloud computing. While small- and medium-sized manufacturing firms might have been among the first to move to cloud-based solutions, now large manufacturers are moving to the cloud as well, and they are seeing real benefits in solutions such as cloud ERP.
Manufacturers know that, in order to be successful in the rapidly changing markets of the global economy, they must make more efficient use of large amounts of data to leverage business intelligence and become more agile. They are looking to the cloud as a solution. The current explosion of cloud platforms, especially the Salesforce ecosystem, has led industry analysts to predict even more growth for cloud-based ERP solutions for manufacturing ERP.
These are exciting and challenging times for manufacturing companies. Firms of all sizes are eager to realize the productivity and efficiency gains that cloud ERP brings and that ultimately drive growth. But they want increased mobility too; in this age of advanced mobile communications, manufacturers need to access their cloud ERP systems on cell phones and tablets from anywhere in the world. The demands of modern manufacturing are pushing these two technologies together and the results can be seen in cloud ERP mobile solutions such as Rootstock Software’s Manufacturing Cloud ERP.
Reshoring operations back to the United States has recently emerged as an important trend in manufacturing. However, there are some significant challenges facing companies that have moved back or are planning to move back, challenges that present clear opportunities for cloud-based ERP software to provide solutions.
