Managing customer orders on a project basis is one of the biggest challenges in the project based manufacturing industry. The continuous synchronization between project planning and material planning is a major challenge to reduce the time to market for customer-driven product designs and variations. Because of the dynamic nature of project business, it is important to have real-time access to the huge amount of data required (delivery dates, purchase orders, bills of materials, production orders, etc.).
Having real-time insights in project progress, project supply chain and project financials has a positive effect on delivery reliability and project margins.
