Typical manufacturing plants have multiple vendors and interfaces, complex information flows and processes, all of which can lead to limited visibility into orders, materials and production. In order for them to operate at peak performance, manufacturers must systematically identify and contain plant floor inefficiencies.
Exigy's manufacturing software solution provides an integrated suite of applications that give you the tools to plan, manage and execute a world-class manufacturing operation. Through automation of all aspects of your production processes, you can effectively manage your operations – from order entry to production, warehouse management and delivery, covering tasks relating to production ordering, bills of material, supply planning, capacity requirements planning and scheduling. In this manner, you can benefit from flexible processes and integrated information that equips you to make accurate promises to customers and respond quickly to last-minute requests.
With an effective manufacturing management system, you can provide your customers with information that they can count on and open your business to trading partners around the clock. Agile manufacturing enhances your business performance from the shop floor to your bottom line, so you can drastically increase the accuracy of promised orders with multiple planning options, tracking and interactive action messages, whilst enabling vendors to manage catalogues, enter drop shipment orders and maintain delivery dates.
Our manufacturing management solution, based on Microsoft Dynamics NAV, gives you total control of your entire production process, with a wide-range of features that help your people concentrate more on higher-value activities:
Realistic Capacity Planning
Implement realistic plans according to incoming resource capacity demands in order to accommodate changing shop floor workloads and simplify planning with calendars and machine allocation tools.
Facilitated Supply Chain Capabilities
Facilitate materials flow through the supply chain with multi-location planning capabilities – from the sales order, production order to purchase requisition – with the ability to update and change all materials, costs and operations simultaneously.
Convenient Production Scheduling and Management
Access an overview of production schedules displayed in Gantt charts and use drag-and drop features to re-schedule operations, with changes being reflected into the relevant production order. Improve coordination of made-to-order requests and simplify make-or-buy decisions, with better visibility into item costs throughout the production process to better manage sales and purchase prices with customers and vendors.
Tightened Warehouse and Inventory Management
Tightly integrate manufacturing and warehousing activities to help you optimise warehouse layout and space utilisation and maintain up-to-date inventory information.
Integrated Bills of Materials (BOMs)
Integrate different types of BOMs into manufacturing operations to boost performance and support time-to-market and time-to-volume objectives.
Manufacturing enables optimised planning capabilities and synchronised communication across the supply chain, helping you to minimise inventory whilst fulfilling customer requirements:
Enhance Project Management
Leveraging knowledge from prior projects, you can provide an accurate overview of project statuses, whilst tracking activities at many levels of detail and accurately aligning customer requirements with your capabilities.
Simplify Manufacturing Processes
With a simplified manufacturing foundation bringing about business performance improvements from the shop floor to your bottom line, you can gain greater visibility into all aspects of your operations whilst ensuring your manufacturing system's scalability as your business needs become more complex.
Boost Operational Efficiency
With flexible processes in place, you can boost operational efficiency and effectively manage production, increasing your time to dedicate towards new business opportunities to help your business stay ahead of competition.
Provide Customers with the Information They Need
By gaining a comprehensive view of customer information, whilst eliminating isolated data silos, you can more easily respond to changing customer demands and coordinate multichannel communications with customers.
