Manufacturers rely on ERP systems to help run their business and to keep their business processes on track. The goal of ERP standardization is to implement best practices, consistency and automation into your manufacturing processes. This can be accomplished if you select the right ERP software solution for your business. Most solutions offer you at least some level of flexibility.
Software customizations can also help tailor a solution to your specifications, so you can continue running operations as usual. As the business expands, just customize features to accommodate your new requirements. You want to be careful to not over-customize your software, or it defeats the purpose of standardizing. Relying on standardization and configuration over customization can dramatically reduce ERP project costs and labor.
ERP standardization allows you to follow manufacturing best practices and streamline operations. Standardized workflows enable automation, so you can reduce manual labor and reduce human errors, all while simplifying your processes. The success with your ERP system comes from documenting your processes. By doing this, you are able to uncover issues and find new ways to optimize your workflows.
