Many people in the manufacturing industry have questions like, ‘How can a business survive in this competitive world if they don’t care about being innovative, efficient on a continuous basis’, ‘How can I produce quality products at the right time and at right place in this consumer centric economy’, ‘How do I provide flexibility and product variety while containing manufacturing budget’. To achieve these, ‘Manufacturing Operations Excellence (MOM)’ is imperative for manufacturers. MOM is a philosophy of leadership that stresses the application of a variety of principles, systems, and tools toward the sustainable improvement of key performance metrics. There are many tangible factors that impact/affect Manufacturing Operations Excellence (like lack of quality and compliance, lack of collaboration, delays in decision making, lack of smooth transition from engineering to manufacturing, lack of faster manufacturing network response etc.). You are probably wondering, ‘How SAP can help my business to achieve Manufacturing Operations Excellence and RUN BETTER’. SAP can deliver global orchestration of manufacturing, product innovation and supply network processes, integrated with detailed local execution, while providing visibility and comprehensive manufacturing performance management capabilities.
