Is MRO Software The Driving Force Behind The Manufacturing Sector?


Email | Print

The manufacturing sector is one of the few components instilling vigorous vitality into Texas’s economy. Comprising a large number of companies engaged in the fabrication, preparation, or processing of different products from raw materials, Texas has become a major driver for economic development across the nation. How did Texas become an engine of growth and job creation in the US?

MRO Software Keeps the Manufacturing Sector Going

Although the manufacturing industry has rightly won the laurels for producing exceptional results, the MRO sector is the secret partner that dictates day-to-day manufacturing activities. Since MRO operations play an important role in manufacturing, an increasing number of Texas manufacturers have taken over the reins of MRO.

MRO Software Texas Manufacturing

Having the right parts and equipment on hand to maintain and repair production equipment is not enough to keep manufacturing plants running at peak performance. To be truly efficient, manufacturers must be able to organize and manage everything, from cumbersome manufacturing operations to laborious MRO activities. How can a manufacturing company gain real-time visibility into MRO operations, plan projects and tasks in detail, and ensure that all processes are cost effective? By opting for an advanced MRO software solution, such as Microsoft Dynamics AX.

With this solution, any manufacturer will be able to develop a proactive maintenance strategy, which will give more control over future failures. Since the equipment required to run manufacturing operations is very expensive, replacing reactive maintenance with preventive maintenance is one thing a manufacturer can do to achieve real cost effectiveness.

Therefore, opting for Dynamics AX to manage manufacturing processes along with maintenance and repair events is one of the best decisions you can make for your company. Though the benefits of implementing Dynamics AX are specific to each organization, this solution can help you address numerous challenges, as follows:

  • Predictive maintenance – Predicting and planning maintenance and repair events have never been easier. With Dynamics AX, any manufacturer can ensure that servicing occurs at the right time, reducing unexpected downtime and operating costs. Although MRO operations can be scheduled ahead of time, maintenance and repair tasks along with the equipment, parts, and personnel required for each job may vary, as new issues are discovered during teardown. Dynamics AX allows managers to modify work orders rapidly, according to plant-floor situations and update information in real time so that workers can easily manage any MRO operations, no matter how dynamic and complex they are.
  • Maintenance planning and part provision – Most manufacturers struggle to keep their production lines in constant motion. To minimize interruptions, they need to perform preventive maintenance and repair tasks as quickly as possible. For this, Dynamics AX includes complex MRO software functionality, which allows users to identify and solve inaccuracies in the MRO inventory well in advance; reserve and order equipment and parts automatically, according to work orders; manage and integrate a large amount of information into their existing activities to become more efficient; improve equipment longevity and reliability; avoid costly, emergency repairs resulting from misused or overused equipment; resolve urgent equipment problems to keep everything running smoothly and avoid unexpected delays; and gain better visibility into MRO operations and costs.
  • Innovation – Compatible with third-party MRO software solutions, Dynamics AX facilitates the development and implementation of a proactive approach to servicing a variety of production equipment. Electronic alerts, work order scheduling, quality tracking, and maintenance audits are just a few features that have turned Dynamics AX into one of the best solutions for a manufacturing company interested in servicing its own equipment. Additionally, AX keeps up with the changes in the MRO industry, offering new functionality as more standards are developed.
  • Ineffective collaboration – Steering your company in a new direction can be difficult. To effectively address your company’s MRO needs, you must have good working relationships with original equipment manufacturers and third-party suppliers. The MRO functionality included in Dynamics AX allows you to collaborate effectively with all your customers, vendors, and suppliers.

In conclusion, Microsoft Dynamics AX delivers a reliable MRO software solution that has helped many Texas manufacturers not only to prevent a breakdown from turning into a shutdown but also to optimize their operations in a manner that continues to maximize their revenues.
