“Our team at Marion Body takes pride in providing the exact custom vehicle or truck component needed for each customer’s application. WorkWise ERP helps us do that, because depending on the nature of the product, we may design and build a totally custom vehicle, or produce a configured body with pre-engineered options, all built to each customer specification. This support for “mixed-mode” manufacturing, plus inherent engineering integration, gives us the competitive advantage we need.”
Industrial equipment manufacturers face some of the biggest challenges. Their customers are demanding increased value with decreased costs, while expecting solutions that include full services and support. The products are typically complex in the number of components, and sourced from a number of outside vendors. Simple quality metrics of the past have now been replaced with total life cycle performance, including all the activities that occur from the birth of the equipment till its final replacement.

Agricultural equipment manufacturers face some unusual challenges compared to other types of equipment manufacturers. Sure, they face similar issues of complexity, continuous change, price pressures, and innovation demands. Likewise, their customers also demand equipment lifecycle management, whereby all the activities involving the product must be managed from cradle to grave.

High tech and electronics companies face some of the most dynamic challenges of any industry.

Product life cycles have shortened dramatically over recent years with the advent of new technologies, shifting customer preferences and global competition. The most common element in their environment is change, change and more change.
“One of the main benefits we’ve experienced using WorkWise ERP is being able to get meaningful information we can use, versus getting data that requires more work to get the answers you’re looking for. The data is integrated and streamlined for efficient use which keeps our fixed costs lower and allows us to invest our capital into building better products.”
Rubber and plastics manufacturers produce a wide variety of products increasingly sourced in smaller quantities from a wider base of customers.Global competition has also increased the pressure to find new methods for profitability. And, ever present is the volatility threat of raw material prices. The main challenge for these manufacturers lies in handling the immense variety of products, and the complexity of producing quality items within existing capacity. Industry reports show that leaders typically have an 85-percent capacity utilization with laggards closer to a 50-percent capacity utilization.
