Wrong ERP Questions.

Very often I hear people ask the question on the strength and weakness of an ERP system. (a YES & NO Checkbox - and we are better!) This is the wrong or improper question in my opinion. One should not be looking for the strengths and weaknesses in the software. Instead, you should analyse how well the software fits your business needs.

Your company cannot exploit the software strengths if they are not in an area you need to use. As an example, there are strong project functionalities in Sage 300 but that probably will not help you if you are a company that manufactures & distributes tea or shampoo. 
A weakness in ERP might be its use of inventory attributes, which may not affect you, if you manufacture bicycle. So what value does such an exercise provide? Most probably none! 

There are few proven paths to finding a software fit. There is one "known" way to find software that fits your business and that is to have the sales team demonstrate your processes in their software. And, I would not suggest using all of your processes, just the most important of those.  So, how do you learn your important processes?

Ingredient for successful selection & implementation

* Top Management Commitment / Lower Management Co-operation.
* Involvement of the Account dept, Production dept and sales/distribution dept.
* Co-operation of every dept to product accurate and reliable Inventory data.
* Lean (Simplify) your current processes
* Don’t look for the perfect software.
* Select software that fits those most important parts of the business.
* Realistic goals of the Software.

Experience has shown that the successful organizations are those who have addressed a much wider range of issues other than just hardware and software. These organizations have defined at the outset how the system would be applied to gain maximum advantage.

They then systematically tackle all the technical and non-technical issues, involving people, organization, working practices, and physical layout, and establish an appropriate environment to support the system.

A successfully implementation invariably reflects the organization's ability to manage change and early recognition that it involve much more than installing computer systems and effective pre-planning.

SO DON'T GET CAUGHT WITH THE BIG BOYS GAME, (with - EXPENSIVE-REGRETS-PAINS) CHECK OUT WHAT THE ALTERNATIVE HAS TO OFFER.


Talk to us,  we want to help you simplify and computerize your organization.

INDUSTRY 4.0 - Reality and Hype.

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. … Lao-Tzu

I talk to manufactures all the time and as I walk their factories I was hit with the reality that frankly in this region these plants have yet to fully adopt the automation technologies of Industry 3.0. Now they are hit with realization that the i4 revolution is upon us.

In this environment, executives at manufacturing companies need to separate hype from reality. They need a clear picture of the current risks and opportunities. And they need to understand what their peers and competitors are doing to drive value and capture competitive advantage.

At Careware, we want to help SMALL-MEDIUM MANUFACTURING organisations separate hype from reality. So, we sat down with you and talk about your concerns and needs. And very often we say go back to basic. Simplify your process and also strengthened your inventory accuracy. These are the FOUNDATION of your quest in it-lization.

Select an ERP that is i4 friendly and compatible, that is affordable and that is fuelled by the current technology of cloud, mobility and business intelligent analytics, etc. The ERP is essentially central to your entire business process from sales order to manufacturing order, your supply chain and customer service. It is the backbone of the network connecting your business WITHIN and WITHOUT.

It will connect to your production line via integration to your smart machines, robots, production cells, sensors and devices as products and as machines communicate with each other and exchange commands as products move from wip to finished goods along the production line. This is the end goal. The journey begins with the first step.

The outlook for small to medium business manufacturing

It is clear that the future in manufacturing belongs to small medium, innovative businesses that are willing to embrace new and emerging technologies and find new ways to serve new customers in new markets.

Over the next 5-10 years, small medium manufacturing businesses in Malaysia will need to embrace the industrial revolutions that is taking place today else risk been rendered irrelevant in today's Digital Disruptive age.

Whenever there's widespread change in any sector you can bet your bottom dollar that a word will be coined alongside it, and the new buzzword for the combination of industry and the current Internet of Things (IoT) technology is Industry 4.0.

A German government memo released way back in 2013 was one of the first times that 'Industrie 4.0' was mentioned. The high-tech strategy document outlined a plan to almost fully computerize the manufacturing industry without the need for human involvement.

Think about what the industrial revolution did for the textile industry and the automotive industry in the early 20th century and you get an idea of the type of wholesale change that is already taking hold of the industrial sector. You're probably wondering exactly what it is though, and with that in mind, there are new technologies you absolutely have to know about the future industry trend. 

Many manufacturing companies have a difficult time deciding which direction they need to go from a software standpoint. Talk to us, we will help you simplify your manufacturing processes.

INDUSTRY 4

During my engineering work days, I remember we have had Intelligence Building & Factory Automations, even Smart home. We have the Chillers, Condensers, AHU units and lifts and lighting all linked up to a computer centralized system. Monitoring and Sensing chilled water, condenser water and air temperature and volumes for the building to optimize energy usage and comfort and conveniences. That was achievable then if you can afford it.
Today than ever before all these now becomes a realities in IoT and INDUSTRY 4, thanks to the quantum leap of Computer Processing Power, OSes and modern internet (CLOUD) ready Applications Software and of course CONNECTIVITY.

Here is an amazing useful video that explains about INDUSTRY
4, produced by KPMG.
