Problem: Tunnel Vision
The world has changed. It is no longer acceptable to use just one production model in your shop. Customers demand variety in their purchases, and manufacturers who can’t comply see their markets slowly and painfully diminish. What used to be a solid history of orders for over ten years, is now lost because of requirements for variety in the product for which you are not prepared. You can either adapt manually at greatly reduced profits, or adapt your shop to the new world – Multi-Mode Production.
The Answer: The Right to Choose
WorkWise comes with a full spectrum of models to run your plant.
- Make to stock
- Assemble to order
- Build to order
- Configure to order
- Repeat and tweak
- Engineer to order
Use of these models provides distinct advantages based on the customer requirements. Each model can have significant impact on your lead times, inventories, efficiencies, and cost. With rising customer demands for more variety and quicker deliveries, you need the flexibility to match those needs. Lacking the ability to offer the right model can make the difference between protecting relationships with new/existing customers or seeing those revenues slip away to your competition. More and more manufacturers have learned the hard way, and lost some of their best customers by failing to accommodate changing requirements. Why not be ready with an ERP system that offers all these models built-in, plus a support team with decades of experience in how to use them?
