Shooting for the stars, side by side
Sweden’s biathlon team competes globally at the very highest level. Reaching this standard requires incredible commitment, and challenges biathletes to be consistent and maximize every area of their performance to achieve the best results.
The same applies to a successful manufacturing company. Just like a biathlete’s meticulously planned training program, each part of a company must be optimized and coordinated. You need a full overview and control of your production and production data in order to learn more about and most effectively develop your operations. MONITOR G5 is the perfect tool to help you achieve these goals and finish ahead of the competition.
In the metal and processing industry, loading plans and nesting functionality are key to most effectively coordinating material consumption and getting maximum output from your machines. Nesting (the process of planning cutting of metal sheets to reduce waste) allows integration with laser cutting and press brake systems. We can also provide connections to your own machines with the Machine integration (MI) option. MI is a function that integrates your machines to the MONITOR ERP system to enable automatic real-time reporting on machine performance. It provides an overview of breaks in production and reliable post-calculations, leading to more optimized production.
In this industry, furniture, in particular, manufacturers often work in unique projects where the design of a piece may vary depending on who places the order. Some customers want a wooden chair, while others want to combine wood and metal. Our Product configurator – which uses certain basic data to build different versions of a product before calculating prices and seamlessly generating manufacturing orders – is the ideal solution. And our Purchase module helps you to manage specific projects in order to further optimize your workflow.
Product structures are key in this industry, as well as effective material planning and the process of bringing materials together to form the end product. And because so many different components are used in a product, traceability is also a key function in MONITOR G5.
If you sell direct to the consumer (B2C), our Webshop is an excellent addition to the ERP system. The platform is directly linked to MONITOR, which means your customers can easily see the current stock balance when placing orders. All orders are immediately processed in MONITOR and can be handled right away. The Electronic Invoice Management (EIM) option lets you streamline and digitalize your full invoice flow, saving valuable time and resources.
Just like the metal industry, loading plans and machine integrations are also important in plastics. A wide range of compression molding tools is used in this segment, which makes our Tools and Maintenance option the perfect solution. This functionality provides a full overview and complete control of your tools and machinery, so you can easily see where tools are located and obtain current stock values, maintenance intervals, and planned maintenance.
