4 Ways to Transform Sage 100cloud Discrete Manufacturing Management

4 Ways to Transform Sage 100cloud Discrete Manufacturing Management

Get the 4 transformation tips to modernize your Sage 100 manufacturing processes and systems for an ever-changing economy.

Many manufacturers are feeling the pressure to invest in initiatives to modernize their systems, processes and practices. Here we’ve summarized the discrete manufacturing transformation tips to help modernize for a changing world and increased customer expectations.

What is The Modern Manufacturer?

The Modern Manufacturer:

  • Knows what’s happening at all times across the organization enabled by data-centric visibility across processes and systems.
  • Adopted an agile development mindset and are much less focused on just product development.
  • Operate with a vision to ensure utmost business resiliency and manufacturing flexibility.
  • Optimize processes, relying heavily on cloud-based software for automation.

Transformation Tip #1 - No More Data Silos

The days of the data silos are long gone. What was once generally accepted is now a clear barrier to data-centric corporate cultures. The modern discrete manufacturer knows how much more value they can get from sharing information, particularly operational and financial data. To be largely successful, Modern Manufacturers must have an eye on what’s happening at all times, from sales to suppliers. They rely on cloud-connected ERPs, such as Sage 100cloud, to collect and analyze their data to get the insights they need to make decisions.

Transformation Tip #2 - Agile Thinking

The recent supply chain and consumer spending upheaval have forced the Modern Manufacturer to rely on their agile thinking to look for deeper ways to cut costs, while maintaining on-time delivery rates, and achieving all-important business continuity. The most successful companies are providing their manufacturing leaders with new methodologies and tools to help them enable process development innovation, ensuring programs are managed for the highest outcomes at the lowest costs.

Transformation Tip 3 - Resilient Foundation

In a growth economy, it's easy to forget about what it takes to be resilient in the face of unexpected change. The Modern Manufacturer has a mindset that seeks the most flexibility, which in turn enables adaptability and resiliency when they need to pivot on a dime. They rely on cloud-based systems like Sage 100cloud to spot opportunities to shorten turnaround times, cut costs, or proactively avert supply chain disruption.

Transformation Tip 4 - Optimize Holistically

The Modern Manufacturer considers optimization more broadly, not just on the shop floor and not just within their own company. The discrete manufacturing process is a tenuous weave of upstream and downstream dependencies and processes that should must be considered when seeking opportunities to streamline. The most successful manufacturers are frequently choosing cloud-driven automation to aggregate and analyze data from their own company, and use integrations with other apps and data sources to seek opportunities at all stages of these interconnected chains. Automated alerts point to actions they can take to mitigate loss or delays.
