Creation needs good support
Manufacturing takes a lot of planning, especially in the JIT (Just In Time) markets. Knowing who wants what by when, and to ensure the materials are in the right place is a skill which is greatly improved with the use of technology. Manufacturers who make use of tools and evaluate data keep ahead of the competition and continually provide their customers with what they need when they want it.
There are many different tools available to manufacturers, from simple on-line, to sophisticated on-premises systems. Other tools an integrate with production lines, and automated picking and warehouses. This enables automated ordering of parts and materials, decreasing time-lag and decreasing errors.
