The manufacturing industry has undergone significant changes in the past several decades. Global competition is greater today than ever before in history. Local or regional manufacturers can no longer hope to achieve a competitive advantage based on location and geography alone. Products, pricing, process, quality and features drive the market and consumers are willing to purchase products from competitors to get more favorable pricing or a better, more suitable product.
Increasing raw material costs and declining profit margins combine with government regulatory compliance policies to create a nearly impossible juggling act for even the most sophisticated manufacturing enterprise.
The manufacturing enterprise must carefully monitor and analyse competitors, local, regional and international, and find ways to optimise resources and achieve maximum productivity with minimum investment. Manufacturers combine innovative plans for growth with optimised, streamlined operations and resource allocation, sustain effective raw material inventory and avoid doing business with undependable suppliers, distributors and partners.
Managers and business users must leverage technology and data to remain abreast of developments, understand quality issues, service interruption, resource shortages and other critical business factors. Guess work is not good enough! Every user must know what is expected of them to perform their role and satisfy the goals and initiatives set forth by management.
ElegantJ BI corporate performance management (CPM) and business intelligence (BI) solutions can help manufacturing business users to analyse cost factors and make appropriate decisions for acquisition of raw material and sold goods. Managers can leverage insight into the demand and supply trends in the market and ordering, shipping and inventory results to optimise investment and avoid short supply.
