Acumen IT – Make-to-Order Manufacturing
In partnership with Infor VISUAL software, Acumen IT’s ERP solutions for the Make-to-Order and Engineer-to-Order manufacturing sectors provide an approach to job-based materials management and shop-floor scheduling that’s been refined through years of experience and thousands of successful Infor customer implementations.
Infor VISUAL ERP is built around a patented finite scheduling algorithm that accounts for actual capacity and dovetails with sophisticated materials management routines to closely match on-hand and expected material availability to production schedules.
Created specifically for order-driven manufacturing, Infor VISUAL ERP solves issues for various industries, including:
- Discrete general manufacturing
- Automotive—Tier 2, Tier 3
- Industrial equipment and machine manufacturers
- Heavy fabrication
- Specialty vehicles
- Medical devices
Infor VISUAL ERP quickly converts customer requirements into manufacturing requirements and then executes them efficiently. Lean concepts eliminate redundant or wasteful steps that users may be forced to go through with other manufacturing software. True to its name, Infor VISUAL ERP provides a compelling visual presentation that shows how each step of the manufacturing process relates to all other elements,-helping to resolve bottlenecks, schedule effectively, and price jobs accurately.
Infor VISUAL ERP supports mixed-mode manufacturing production strategies, including engineer-to-order, make-to-order, assemble-to-order, and make-to-stock. Infor VISUAL ERP also displays all key statistics on a single screen, helping ensure that schedules are met, materials arrive on time, and costs are in line with estimates.
