SAP Business One for Manufacturing

In the manufacturing industry, it is critical to have an in-depth understanding of your business operations across the entire organisation, which includes finance, sales, procurement, inventory, production and logistics. Read on to see how SAP Business One for Manufacturing can help you to manage your entire manufacturing business to optimise efficiency. 

Manufacturing businesses often face difficulties keeping track of key metrics such as manufacturing capacity utilisation, on-time work order completion, cost of goods sold, yield, on-time delivery and rate of return. These problems occur when businesses lack a platform to trace and record manufacturing data. 

Without a deep insight into your manufacturing operations and efficiency, it is difficult to pinpoint specific areas or stages for process improvement and in the long run, this limits business growth and profitability. 

Another common obstacle faced by manufacturing companies is when they operate a standalone (silo-ed) manufacturing system which is not integrated to the central business system – some businesses did not start out with a manufacturing component in their central business system and the manufacturing system was later added to ease the work of the production team.

While this may alleviate certain day-to-day operational issues, having a silo-ed business workflow fails to address the root problem of organisation silos. This cross-departmental informational gap quickly becomes apparent as soon as customers request for any deviation to the standard products or delivery requirements. 

To eliminate these issues and increase productivity, a growing number of manufacturing businesses choose to upgrade to a fully integrated manufacturing ERP system, providing them with more accurate and timely insights into their entire business operations.
