Any industry is run by three critical things – Man, Material, and Machine.
Any mismanagement of even among these three can lead to massive long-term effect. Every industry understands this fact, so they try to keep all of these connections and wants them to work in a unified way. However, without proper information sharing or correct reporting, the system might breakdown.
As a result, the organization could face frequent breakdowns, delays, and loss of production.
To avoid or minimize these types of mishaps every industry should look towards having an ERP system so that the employees remain committed and confident, the machines continue breakdown-free, and there is no loss of material.
So, let us see how exactly an ERP software can single-handedly incorporate a robust working culture.
Having an ERP enables any person to check all his personal as well as professional information available at a single click of a button. They can check out their attendance record, gather information about the number of leaves left, and what taxes are deducted from the salary.
Having an ERP system induces transparency as well as is helpful if any dispute arises. The HR department too can manage the employees in a better and understanding manner, thus can save much time which they can use for other important administrative work.
The HR department can even monitor the performance of individual employees and can take required action if anyone is found for violating any rules.
ERP can be used for various stock keeping and inventory management activities which allows the employees to work with full confidence due to the availability of the items necessary for daily functioning.
They can schedule maintenance, carry out repair work, or start a new project depending on the requirement and the material available.
They can even borrow some familiar items from another department’s stock during an emergency situation and return them in due course.
The store inspection and the material required records are easy to prepare, so error-freerecords can be generated according to need.
The ERP also shows the overall availability of a few materials stored in a common location, so eliminates the need to build separate storage spaces at every shop floor thus reducing unwanted expenses.
The machine is another useful component for achieving the required production. Though operated by humans, the overall machine can impact the production volume as well as the quality of the product. Having an ERP system can allow you to monitor the health and status of every key machine by integrating with them. Thus, any deviation in the operating machine pattern is notified to the concerned shop-floor in-charge, who can rectify the mistake. ERP can also be configured to trigger an emergency alarm in case of the major machine fault. Thus, recording every major and minor machine downtime data are recorded by the ERP which enables the higher management to decide on the maintenance schedule or modification of the machine.
Every organization has a mission of zero-accident, zero-breakdown for achieving the optimum productivity.
ERP acts as a bridge between the three primary requirements smoothly in such a way that it progresses at a faster rate, reduces any wastage so and allows the management to invest more in their production line.
