Enterprise systems: From data management to supply chain issues


Enterprise resources planning (ERP) and enterprise asset management (EAM) are widely recognized as the transactional systems of record in manufacturing, production and other type business enterprises.

It has been said that IT and Finance departments lean to the ERP side of the coin, while plant operators like EAM’s rich functionality. Different type databases, table structures, upgrade issues and system constraints add costs to on-going integration.

The single biggest issue facing managers in discrete manufacturing and process production is how to make best use of the data collected. Correcting the absence of a structured data schema for analytics suitability requires accurate master data records, equipment hierarchies, problem-failure mapping systems, failure codes and more. Challenges remain when it comes to incorporating data from real-time automation systems into enterprise systems.

Another important topic, especially relevant today, is the role of enterprise systems in addressing supply-chain disruptions, whether it’s ERP’s role in production optimization or EAM’s in maintenance.
