Digitized Manufacturing processes with Fox ERP

Feb 2022

The COVID-19 pandemic emergence has resulted in a lot of challenges. Along with the plethora of challenges, it presented the world with ample opportunities.
Challenges of worldwide lockdown, remote working model, and social distancing norms made the workforce extensive industries such as manufacturing facing difficulties in its operations.

This also has resulted in business practices that require digitization to enable seamless integration in products and services.
From service commissioning to deployment, digitization in manufacturing processes outnumbers traditional business processes.
The manufacturing industry comprises several sub-processes that leverage the benefits that digitized manufacturing offers and derive benefits from it.
Logistics procedures, supply chain management processes, and manufacturing business practices focus on acquiring the best services and driving business insights to make business decisions.
According to recent research, approximately 73% of organizations that leverage digital tools and technologies in their operations reported higher operational efficiency and reduced costs.
Manufacturing processes, unlike other industries, leverages on benefits that digitized business practices offer.
Manufacturing industries consist of sub-business practices such as Procurement, Logistics, Supply chain, among others.
Without the efficiency in any of these business activities hampers the outcomes of other processes.

Key elements of Digitized Manufacturing Processes

1. Automation

ERP brings automation as one of the revolutions.
