The concept of “integrated management” is often read in various media articles about the digitalization of manufacturing enterprises. We can not help but ask: integrated management, integrated management platform, is the standard configuration of manufacturing enterprises, especially machining enterprises? There are 1000 kinds of answers for 1000 managers of machining industry, which can be summed up as “yes” and “no”! They think it is necessary to start from the overall control of business and data by enterprise management, and realize that both mechanical processing and integrated management are very important and necessary for enterprises; if they think that it is not, managers usually think that there is no need to have a comprehensive battlefield battle just from the beginning of digital transformation, but to cut in from local and most important departments and links according to the actual situation 。 In this case, we might as well discuss the ERP of mechanical processing industry, unable to integrate platform management such a topic.
What is the situation of ERP in machining industry without integrated platform management?
We might as well imagine: a small and medium-sized machining manufacturing enterprise, on ERP but can not achieve integrated platform management, what will happen? If you want to get the first-hand data, you have to find the person in charge of the Department in person and transfer out the system data. The information island still exists. In the business process, once the purchase and processing of orders are involved, and the information between each other lags behind, how to ensure timely and quality delivery? There are many such situations. Let’s take advantage of the “acloudear white paper on digital transformation of mechanical equipment manufacturing enterprises” released by acloudear, a digital transformation expert in the mechanical manufacturing field and a platinum partner of SAP. We find some clues through a series of inquiries from ERP enterprise managers in the mechanical processing industry.
So, where is the theoretical support that does not need integrated management?
We need to analyze the position and perspective of the enterprise managers who said this, mainly based on a pragmatic and economic enterprise digital transformation to treat integrated management. We are not in a hurry to make a conclusion. From the starting point of standpoint, there is a certain truth: the digital transformation of machining manufacturing enterprises does not start at the first step, but focuses on some parts, such as business processes, such as project management, and customer experience (CRM) upgrading, aiming at the core pain points of enterprises at present and in the future. The purpose is to solve the current pain points first, and then continue to map them step by step. This seems to be very reasonable!
The ultimate question: is ERP in mechanical processing industry integrated management?
Different positions, different ideas and conclusions naturally! If we want to look at the integrated management objectively, we need to draw on the experience and vision of experts. What do you think of acloudear, a digital transformation expert in the field of mechanical manufacturing? No doubt, no matter from the present or long-term perspective, machining manufacturing enterprises need integrated management of ERP system! From a certain point of view, the above two positive and negative views are not completely opposite! Because the integrated management is a kind of thought and idea, under the premise of such a big idea, it is undoubtedly feasible for us to start the digital transformation of small and medium-sized machining enterprises from the local point of view.
Therefore, integrated management is more for ERP suppliers in mechanical processing industry. Only with the system concept of global view can we build a global ERP management system and truly conform to the digital transformation of enterprises under the trend of industry 4.0. It can help mechanical processing enterprises to realize the whole process transparency and data flow, mobilize all resources of enterprises, analyze real-time and objective data of enterprises, and provide effective basis for enterprise decision-making. As for the transformation of enterprises, we should start from the business process or the integration of industry and finance or customer relationship. We should analyze the specific problems and make different choices for different enterprises.
If we look at the requirements of industry 4.0 for ERP of machining industry, without integrated platform management, it is not really ERP of machining industry.
