The benchmark for software manufacturers analyzes the transformation of industrial processes, sector by sector
Bilbao, January 31, 2024.- The leading software solutions manufacturer in the IT sector today launches a new teaching guide titled "ERP and industrial automation. How to transform processes sector by sector."
This document, which can be downloaded for free at zucchetti.es, provides the keys to adapting to the paradigm shift brought about by new technologies and industry 4.0.
The guide shows how to automate processes in 3 important industrial segments, such as automotive, machining or machine tool manufacturers.
Industrial automation is already here; Now it is essential that industries adapt to it. The objective is to learn how to improve efficiency and increase the competitiveness of the industry through the implementation of new technologies. Solutions that help make smart, data-driven decisions and make effective demand forecasts, instead of relying on mere estimates.
This is shown in the teaching guide on industrial automation, which Zucchetti Spain has just launched:
"New technologies promote a new manufacturing model based on effective demand forecasting [...] This new production system allows industries to stop being large stores with complex processes and little capacity to resist changes in the demand [...] and become smart factories".
Through the implementation of an industrial ERP solution, companies can successfully address this transformation. The result results in improved planning of production lines and, consequently, better results at an operational and financial level.
Vertical ERP software, a springboard to improve industry competitiveness
As reflected in the new teaching guide launched by Zucchetti, the needs of each industry are different.
Thus, for example, in the complex automotive industry there is a need to optimize logistics costs and manufacturing times to achieve optimal results. The control provided by management software such as Solmicro ERP Industrial for the integration of processes helps achieve objectives. In this way, the challenge of effective supply chain management can be addressed and the automation of processes in each of the production stages can be delved into, from the manufacturing and design of parts to assembly through industrial robotics. .
This reality is also observed in the machining industry sector. ERP software solutions with Business Intelligence such as Solmicro ERP Industrial also reflect the importance of carrying out a correct predictive analysis of demand, avoiding overproduction. On the other hand, they facilitate the integration between the product design area with CAD/CAM tools and production planning. Industries thus achieve effective cost control, facilitate workflows and avoid cost overruns.
Finally, Zucchetti Spain addresses in the guide the needs of the machine tool industry, where it is necessary to handle a high volume of raw materials and components. Controlling traceability is key in this sector to prevent inefficiencies and control production. ERP is presented as the best solution to adapt to changing demand.
"The only way to maintain production growth and profitability in a heavily exporting sector such as machine tool manufacturing is through advanced ERP software, which has Business Intelligence tools that facilitate financial analysis, forecasting sales and future demand.
Technological innovation for a smart industry
Automation involves implementing new technologies. These can improve productivity in all areas of the business, from administration to manufacturing. But the most important thing is that they facilitate decision making, the integration of processes and communication between the different areas of the industry.
In this way, today, thanks to technologies such as the Internet of Things, Big Data, Industrial Robotics and Artificial Intelligence, we are already talking about smart factories, which provide data in real time and allow the development of more profitable production strategies. , efficient and competitive.
This technological transformation must be accompanied by a corporate cultural change that understands the implications of industrial automation. Along these lines, the role of a technological partner like Zucchetti Spain is essential to maintain constant technological surveillance and provide software solutions that help technological evolution and innovation in the company.
