ERP, Management and Related Software

ERP stands for “Enterprise Resource Planning.” Some of the functions associated with ERP and related management software include: Costing or estimating the time and cost of production, scheduling a job for production, and in-process job tracking, or logging each step in a part’s progress through the shop, so a part’s current status can be immediately known. ERP systems also provide a historical view of resources required on prior jobs which can be very helpful in planning new work. 

A dashboard from ECi’s M1 manufacturing enterprise resource planning (ERP) software includes an overview of key action items (such as shipments that need to be invoiced); data open jobs (including such information as needed resources and due dates); and charts on both sales and quotes.
