Infor LX & BPCS: Do You Need MES & Not Even Know It?

George Moroses 0 984 Article rating: 5.0

You know your plant better than anyone, and most likely you'd admit that there is room for improvement. Perhaps too many defects are causing costly issues down the road, or maybe your production is behind and orders are shipping late? Do you know what needs to be improved? Do you know about the root causes of the problems that you’re experiencing? Is it fair to say, you don’t know what you don’t know … yet?

MES helps you dig into the problem and better yet, SOLVES the problem!

What Is MES and How Does It Work?

Many companies still enter data manually or share work instructions on paper. Most of them, however, know there’s a better way to organize the mass of activity happening on the plant floor. MES provides visibility to that activity as well as the underlying data and uses that data to improve how that activity is done and makes it repeatable. MES connects multiple sites, integrates with equipment, and raises the effectiveness of business applications all to better optimize operations.

The 3 Pillars of MES:

  1. Establishing...

Don't laugh - the average lifespan of an ERP system is 7-10 years

Crossroads RMC 0 2111 Article rating: 5.0

Don’t laugh! I know, I know…many of our customers say that after 7-10 years they are finally settling in after the implementation! We have seen many a customer stretch out the lifespan of their ERP system to 20+ years. That sounds great for the company’s bank account, but is it good for the business?

An outdated ERP system hurts your business in many ways, not just with slow performance. The best-of-breed functionality is now 2 decades old, and obsolete technology can't leverage newer technology. Lack of integration leads to siloed data that hurts communication and your internal teams feel the pain, and your customers are noticing. Poor visibility into your operations makes it nearly impossible to achieve industry-based regulatory compliance and meet financial auditing requirements. Not to mention the sheer size of Big Data that is being collected today vs. 2 decades ago or the fact that your vendor is no longer supporting your ERP version.

Let’s scrap it all and start over!...

The Infor Development Framework (IDF) re-architects the way a user interacts with the application, providing an efficient, task-oriented process to view application information that is contained within Infor LX. IDF enables users to configure their view of the application data without modifying the core application and its supportability.

The examples below describe how users can configure their display of data and maximize overall productivity:

  • Arrange application information into multiple groupings and sequences that make sense for the job.
  • Filter or hide records to show only the information that applies to the job or task that the user is performing.
  • Customize the information for an individual user, a group of users, or all users.

Infor’s Intelligent Open Network (ION) technology easily integrates Infor ERPs and third-party enterprise systems. ION is an advanced middleware cloud platform that provides the flexibility you need to make the most complex web of enterprise systems work together on-premise, in the cloud, or both. ION’s long-term sustainability will optimize your ROI, and with ION, one application can be upgraded, replaced, or even fail without taking the entire network down.

Benefits:

  • Faster integration and upgrade times
  • Access to real-time information
  • Reduced burden on IT
  • Immediate access to business services like reporting and mobility

For older BPCS installations that don’t use ION, Crossroads RMC has the expertise to build powerful adapters to allow your specific BPCS version to communicate and exchange information with virtually any sub-system that can import/export data.
