The digital revolution entails many changes for manufacturing companies – networking, exchange and interaction between human and machine, data availability etc. are important elements in this context. Meanwhile, it makes sense to have a single, integrated IT-system that networks with machines smartly and exchanges directly with each other in real time.
With the business application PPS-IT based on Dynamics 365 Business Central (formerly Dynamics NAV), prisma informatik offers medium-sized manufacturing companies a comprehensive solution that apart from accounting and inventory management processes, fully covers the area of production planning and control (PPS system), for instance production orders, parts lists, purchase and capacity requirement planning to the manufacturing industry.
By using the PPS solution, you are creating a solid foundation for current trends and challenges of the industrial sector such as the globalization or the technological opportunities of industry 4.0. The production becomes more flexible, efficient and dynamic, for instance with a smart demand-driven material flow or digital process data.
Furthermore, the PPS-system is integrally extending the functional scope to quality assurance processes and enables systematic quality checks in a software-controlled process in the sense of Business Process Management (BPM). The industry solution PPS-IT provides advanced features for integrated quality management in manufacturing to meet the increasing requirements regarding customer specifications and documentation obligations (compliance, DIN / ISO certification).
