In a fast-paced marketplace, companies must embrace change to manage growth and remain competitive. SMEs face multiple challenges every day, but keeping on top of your business operations is essential if you want to be successful.
This includes creating a robust manufacturing management process which links each job flow to various other business functions. Adopting an MRP (Material Requirements Planning) or ERP system (Enterprise Resource Planning) can provide businesses with a simple, sustainable solution for increasing efficiency in a cost-effective way.
An ERP system transforms your business functions by combining them in one central place.
This includes accountancy functions, personnel and the full production process from initial quotation through to final payment. By streamlining your processes, you’ll completely organise your manufacturing operations across the company, leading to increased productivity and reduced costs.

Maintaining production at desired levels is essential in the manufacturing industry. This includes meeting product orders on time and keeping track of each aspect of the manufacturing workflow. There are various ways manufacturing companies choose to organise their processes, and this can depend on factors such as company size and the complexity of operations.
If you feel like your business could be performing better, it’s time to look for a solution to these challenges.
Many manufacturing companies choose to use an MRP system (Material Requirements Planning). MRP systems involves software which combines the various elements of controlling the materials used in the manufacturing process.
When an order is placed, the software will understand the composition required to produce the product and use factors such as availability, volumes needed and the inventory records to create a schedule for its manufacture. This helps companies to see an overall picture of the input required to create the finished products. This type of planning software is essential for any manufacturing businesses to keep up with their competitors.
Unfortunately, many businesses face challenges with keeping their processes as efficient as possible which can have negative consequences on the business such as loss of trade, reputation and customers. Reasons for this include:
The manufacturing process isn’t just about the materials involved in creating the final products and getting them delivered in a timely manner. There are further factors which contribute towards manufacturing success including the people involved and administrative factors.
Over time, MRP software has evolved to incorporate these other organisational requirements such as finances, supply chains and human resources functions.
This type of software is known as ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) and covers a much broader spectrum of a company’s functions.
The ERP software provides a single database for every function involved in the manufacturing process. ERP software takes the elements of MRP and integrates them with the roles of various other departments across the organisation such as Human Resources and Accounts.
This makes for easier collaborations across the business and enhanced information sharing in order to function as a whole.
The ERP system’s increased functionality and integrations with other systems, resulted in this type of software spreading into different industries, not just manufacturing. The systems can be tailored to your needs as a business and be adapted as you grow.
ERP is a type of management software system which aims to integrate all the various parts of your business, helping you to coordinate processes, information and resources from the same place. This includes:
