ERP in Manufacturing
A manufacturing company could use an ERP system to track and manage virtually every operation in the organization. Requests for Proposal (RFP) and corresponding quotes can be entered and assigned to any of a large database of customers. Quotes can be changed to SAles orders upon receipt of purchase orders, with line items and corresponding prices that represent goods to be delivered to a customer.
Demand for the items on a sales order can be used to generate a work order (WO) for manufactured products, and the lines on WOs can be units of raw materials and units of labor from various work stations. Raw materials assigned to WOs are issued from inventory, and when inventory is low enough, a demand is created for the purchasing department to replenish the material. Finished goods (FG) are assigned costs based on the use of resources like labor, equipment or tooling. Completed WOs are changed to FG and then shipped in the shipping module. Shipping FG alerts accounting to send an invoice. Paid invoices are entered into the accounting module. Sales people can access the ERP through a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) module, where sales prospects, leads and activities are tracked. SAP is customized by adding or eliminating any module as needed.
