Clean Up The Production Floor And Warehouse To Improve Workflow

Email | Print

Manufacturing facilities can be busy, even chaotic to onlookers, with fast-paced production activities and inventory coming and going at all hours of the day and night.  In the commotion, it can be difficult to maintain high levels of productivity, keep track of inventory and sometimes, remain at peak efficiency.  Deploy a robust business management solution that can support efforts to establish better workflow and boost productivity and profitability.

Disparate, specialty software programs are often used for specific business operations.  The problem with using separate systems is that data is also separated.  When timely and accurate information is as necessary as it is with manufacturing businesses, you need the support of an integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution.  You can manage all of your business operations from a single, integrated solution including finances, inventory and supply chain, manufacturing and distribution operations, human resources and payroll activities, and other key business processes.  You can also use built-in business intelligence to turn data into actionable insight.

In the case of a chaotic manufacturing facility, you can use a robust ERP solution, such as Microsoft Dynamics® GP, to identify trending products.  Role Tailored dashboards and reporting features can identify products that are increasing in popularity or those that may soon become obsolete.  You may also distinguish between fast-moving and slow-moving products.  With this information, you can organize your warehouse, putting popular and fast-moving products in closer proximity to packing and shipping and the slower, less popular items in other areas.  Your warehouse team can save time when picking and packing products for customers, improving their productivity while also streamlining the warehouse.

Microsoft Dynamics GP also offers barcoding, so you can track inventory as its coming in and going out of the warehouse.  Monitoring inventory in real-time, with electronic tracking, is more efficient than physical inventory counts.  In addition, your sales team can have access to the data they need to offer customers available inventory and make delivery promises that they can keep.

Improve the workflow and productivity of your warehouse by replacing inefficient systems with an ERP solution.  Contact Premier Computing, Inc. to learn how you can streamline the warehouse and other business areas with the right ERP solution.
