ERP for Industrial Vehicle Manufacturing

Industrial vehicle manufacturers are faced with several challenges related to project based manufacturing such as accurate job costing, efficient design and engineering change processes, product lifecycle management, inventory and supply chain management.

In addition, rolling stock and industrial vehicle manufacturers must meet many compliance and quality standards set forth within the industry while still ensuring products are delivered on time and on budget.

Much focus needs to be put on the shop floor where careful consideration goes into scheduling and inventory management while at the same time, the design and configuration process must be clear and available to those who need it - both in the office and on the shop floor.
