ERP for Electronics Manufacturing

Optimize order-to-ship times with Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) and Material Requirements Planning (MRP).


ERP Software Built for Electrical Manufacturing

Manufacturers operating in the electronics industry depend on their innovation and change management capabilities to be successful. They face the continuous challenge of maintaining their margins while managing supply chains that span the globe, overcoming obstacles related to cross-border shipments, dealing with material shortages, and managing costs. The ERP software and solutions offered by Aqurus are designed to assist electrical manufacturers in meeting these challenges while complying with industry standards and regulations.


What is Electronics ERP?

Electronics ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software delivers industry-specific functionalities to meet the needs of manufacturers under constant pressure to create innovative, reliable and cost-effective products. Electronics manufacturers continually face challenges to automate increasingly complex supply chains to shorten time to market, coordinate cross-border shipments to manage global trade, and develop accurate forecasting processes for ensured material availability, all while lowering costs and meeting the traceability requirements of their customers. Utilizing an ERP system designed for electronic manufacturing helps alleviate many of these pressures by providing real-time, start-to-finish visibility into supply chains for increased product development and coordination flexibility.

How Acumatica ERP Manufacturing Edition Can Work for You

Streamlining your business processes & reducing operational costs

Components, controls, switchgear, motors, and generators vary widely in design and production requirements, but they frequently share parts, assemblies, and manufacturing resources. Balancing supply and demand are critical in one operation or across multiple facilities, particularly when making standard and custom products on the same lines and work centers. Acumatica supports a wide range of competitive strategies, from make-to-order to a master production schedule (MPS), as well as combinations. It is an ERP system that includes customer relationship management (CRM), a warehouse management system (WMS), and complete financial management. Acumatica runs in the cloud so it is accessible from computers, phones, and tablets. Plus, you can add secure access for your customers and suppliers.

Here are some ways how it can be utilized:

Product Management: Acumatica can handle all aspects of product management, from creation to obsolescence. It can manage revisions, BOM changes, and engineering changes. In electronics manufacturing, this is particularly important because products often go through several revisions before reaching the market.

Inventory Management: Acumatica can manage raw materials, work-in-progress inventory, and finished goods. It offers real-time tracking, which helps in minimizing stockouts and overstocks. This feature can help electronics manufacturers manage their parts and reduce costs associated with excess inventory.

Quality Management: Quality is a key aspect of electronics manufacturing. Acumatica allows manufacturers to monitor quality parameters, manage non-conformances, and track corrective actions. This can help to improve the overall quality of products and reduce rework costs.

Manufacturing Operations Management: Acumatica can track real-time production activities, manage work orders, and schedule operations in the production line. This can improve efficiency and productivity in the manufacturing process.

Supply Chain Management: Acumatica provides comprehensive tools for managing the supply chain, including procurement, supplier management, logistics, and distribution. This can ensure timely availability of components and smooth production processes.

Advanced Planning and Scheduling: Acumatica can help electronics manufacturers to plan their production activities better. It takes into account available resources, material availability, and customer demand, helping to reduce lead times and improve on-time delivery.

Customer Relationship Management (CRM): The CRM module in Acumatica can assist in managing customer relationships, handling sales orders, and providing after-sales support. This can improve customer satisfaction and foster long-term relationships.

Business Intelligence and Reporting: Acumatica provides a range of reporting and analytics tools. These can be used to measure performance, identify trends, and make data-driven decisions. In electronics manufacturing, this can help to identify bottlenecks, inefficiencies, and areas of opportunity.

Financial Management: Acumatica integrates financial data with other business operations, providing a comprehensive view of the company's performance. This can aid in financial planning, budgeting, and forecasting.

Integration Capabilities: Acumatica can be integrated with various other systems such as CAD, PLM, eCommerce, etc. which are widely used in the electronics manufacturing industry.
