Solving the Challenges in Manufacturing

Solving the Challenges in Manufacturing

Manufacturers across most industries face many of the same challenges – shorter product lifecycles, increasing customer demands and growing process complexity, to mounting global competition and regulation.

As customers demand ever-greater levels of product customisation, they also want a fast and efficient response. Production lines designed for a single product now need to adapt to many products. Shorter product lifecycles means traditional methods of supply chain management need to transform. This has implications across the entire supply chain.

Ndevr supports our manufacturing customers with Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Manufacturing Solutions that provide pre-integrated business applications and include key functionality developed specifically for your industry.

JD Edwards provides a flexible architecture that supports business processes across the enterprise. Through maximising asset utilisation and better managing transportation and customer service JD Edwards allows you to enhance performance throughout the entire supply chain.
