Manufacturing Workflow Management

How can workflow management help manufacturing companies?

 

Manufacturing companies are in a battle to stay ahead of aggressive competition and globalization while keeping costs in line. In addition, as mergers and acquisitions ripple through the industry, chaos can ensue internally as redundancies, confusion, and complexity threaten performance. Manufacturing companies can adapt more easily to all these forces with workflow management.

Whether a company is considering individual process transformation, adding an integrated layer on top of existing ERP, CRM, etc., or an end-to-end organizational transformation, workflow management solutions like Integrify can help.

Some of the ways Integrify’s workflow automation can help manufacturing companies:

  • Shorten purchasing and budgeting cycle times (CapEx and OpEx)
  • Improve and quicken product lifecycle development
  • Standardize product quality control and governance
  • Shorten supply chain cycle for approvals and receipt of goods
  • Streamline complex document approval processes
  • Improve and standardize safety reporting

Use Case Examples

Capital and Operational Expenditure Requests

But with the volume of capital expenditure requests being submitted, there is a significant risk of mistakes, delays, compliance, and visibility. Given the investment, the cost of these risks can be enormous. By deploying a compliant and consistent workflow for handling capital expenditure requests, manufacturing companies can greatly reduce risk while getting a faster return on capital spending.

Product Lifecycle Development

As manufacturing companies deal with global expansion, competitive pressure, regulatory changes and changing consumer expectations, it’s critical to get new products to market faster and faster. Unfortunately, the process for creating new products never gets easier. While product development cycles can’t be shortcut, they can be managed better with workflow management. By building a structured workflow around R&D, Quality, Production, Packaging, Marketing, manufacturing companies can reduce risk and ensure quality while avoiding process bottlenecks. That means products get to market faster.

Quality Control

Workflow management and automation replace manual, paper-based quality management systems that are inefficient and prone to error. An automated quality management system increases compliance whether an organization is beholden to regulatory rules or is simply interested in improving their own quality standards or conforming to ISO Standards.
