CRITICAL CHALLENGES FACED BY THE COMPANY
The parent company operates two distinct business entities, each using different ERP systems. The goal is to integrate operations between both businesses. However, the ERP system utilized by the first entity is characterized by limited functionality that makes it challenging to monitor and manage inventory availability and location.
As a result, the team faces difficulties in making informed decisions, as they cannot accurately track materials during their daily counts. This leads to assumptions about material usage, resulting in waste or stockouts, and causing production delays. The situation is compounded by the heavy reliance on hard-copy paperwork in system procedures.
The challenge, therefore, is to find a solution that will improve the inventory tracking and management capabilities of the first entity’s ERP system while integrating the operations of both entities.
