Are your projects ready for the Real-Time Economy? Real-time enterprise operations is not simply about speeding up information flow. It is also about being able to monitor your entire portfolio continuously and react instantly when conditions change.

Project Manufacturers

Project manufacturers for the automotive industry are faced with ever-increasing pressures to cut costs, meet demands for innovative products and assemblies, as well as improve quality and efficiency.

In addition, they have to manage quoting and product configurations so they can quickly respond to customer inquiries. And some project manufacturing companies in the automotive sector are under significant pressure because of various regulatory mandates that require reporting, tracking and up-to-the-minute data capture.Mounting costs associated with transportation, energy, and raw materials combined with the fact that their customers have less money to spend, means automotive project manufacturers have to run their projects more efficiently to maintain their margins.

Project Based

Today, customers are more multifaceted and they have more information and more options than in the past. To retain current customers and sign on new ones, automotive project manufacturing companies must offer accurate quotes that include configurations for their products as well as options for delivery.

To operate more effectively, automotive project manufacturers need 360-degree views of their customers and potential customers. They have to manage the entire sales process, from customer lead generation and tracking sales opportunities to winning over prospects and turning them into customers to placing orders.

Achieving their manufacturing goals means automotive project manufacturers have to forecast their customer demand and coordinate the flow of material and capacity to meet due dates. They also have to ensure their systems are flexible and agile so they can quickly react to continually changing requirements, operate more cost effectively, produce less waste and be ready to confidently take on new business.

Product manufacturers in the automotive sector also have to handle inventories, manage production schedules and product lifecycles, and deal with the way product changes affect cost. And they have to execute new product and engineering changes on time while still adhering to high quality and delivery service levels.

To do all this, automotive project manufacturers need a solution that enables them to manage the complete manufacturing operation, i.e., financials and scheduling; shop floor; and quality control to cut costs, better meet their customer expectations; and grow the business.

Challenges

To help manage the complexity and volume of data, automotive project manufacturers typically implement disparate project management tools but their business operations run less efficiently than ever. That’s because one size does not fit all. Advanced technology is key to helping automotive project manufacturers deliver projects more efficiently.

The problem is that most ERP packages are too limited or segmented in their functionality to allow true project lifecycle management to automotive project manufacturing companies.

Project ERP

The solution is to integrate all these functions into one Project ERP system that will enable project-driven firms like automotive project manufacturing firms to create business rules to enforce their critical processes. Project ERP not only helps automotive project manufacturers streamline their workflows, it enables them to keep their clients up to date on their projects as well.

Project ERP provides automotive project manufacturers with the most advanced and proven solution for enterprise information management, as well as equipment design, manufacturing and delivery

When problems arise, Project ERP helps project manufacturing companies in the automotive industry rapidly respond to customer requests and better manage and execute their projects.

The premise of Project ERP is that accurate and timely information must flow seamlessly between the various business functions. That way decision-makers will not only have visibility into what’s going on inside the enterprise, they’ll also have greater control over all parts of the business.

Proposition

By choosing ADEACA’s Project ERP solution to help manage day-to-day project operations, automotive project manufacturers can meet their project goals and deadlines. With a true Project ERP system like the one offered by ADEACA, automotive project manufacturers can:

  • Improve the planning and transparency of the global supply chain across all suppliers and business partners
  • Rapidly and accurately create quotes, submit bids, and roll out new products
  • Quickly respond to scope changes and other external delays, including the impact across their portfolio of projects
  • Effectively evaluate the profitability of projects in the sales phase and maintain that profitability through planning, design, and development
  • Ensure high cost equipment and resources are utilized effectively across a portfolio of projects
  • Reduce margin variance and cost overruns by showing exactly which resources and equipment will be available prior to project start
  • Quickly access critical data from all business areas and for all internal and external key stakeholders
  • Enable better collaboration to respond quickly to changing customer demands, shifts in the market, competition, expedited innovation cycles and changes in cost
  • Effectively manage time, costs, resources, contracts, and changes in a single solution

Generic ERP just doesn’t work for project-based businesses like automotive product manufacturers. In fact, implementing an enterprise ERP system could even hinder productivity and profitability.

Project ERP software from ADEACA, on the other hand, will enable automotive project manufacturers to effectively manage and control their client engagements and all related processes while at the same time provide the required insights into business performance. This means they can operate more efficiently, make timely and informed business decisions, reduce risks and increase profitability.
