Intelligent Manufacturing Challenges

Less of Performance Metrics and Difficulty in Tracing

Lack of quality control measures in the production process affects product stability and customer satisfaction. Enterprises have not established a complete quality traceability system and lack supporting data to demonstrate quality improvement.

Low resource efficiency and unable to meet Expected to Delivery

Due to inaccurate resource planning, delays in material supply, unplanned downtime, and more, it can result in the suspension of production or a slow production cycle, affecting the order fulfilment.

Lack of Transparent in Production Processes, Low Collaborative Efficiency

Lacking information about the production process and performance metrics results in not being able to obtain the real-time production status. Continuous checks and follow-ups lower the communication and collaborative efficiency.

High Uncertainty about Production Requirements and Poor Response to Production Planning

High uncertainty in custom production lacks flexibility in planning and has a poor response in scheduling changes, the production planning and procurement requirements cannot swiftly respond to changing requirements.

Intelligent Manufacturing Solution Features

The mature architecture of the industrial Internet platform helps manufacturing enterprises improve their digital capabilities, optimizes costs and increases efficiency to develop sustainable competitive advantages.

Production Requirements can Fully Align with Sales Forecasts, and Enables More Attainable Planning

Production requirements can fully align with sales forecasts, and enabling a more attainable planning
As the profit rate continually declines in the global market and customer expectations are at all-time highs, a comprehensive solution for material control can promptly manage the changes, fulfilling a responsive or anticipatory business strategy.

Kingdee cloud manufacturing enables close collaboration between organisations by establishing a centralised industry 4.0 planning model for businesses in Hong Kong. Material Purchasing, production schedule, capacity calculation, outsourcing networks, and more, can be integrated into one system, allowing enterprises to visualise the production and make the right decisions.

Full traceability and continuous quality improvement

Full traceability and continuous quality improvement
Quality control and data recording is available throughout the entire process, from raw material to the finished product; a complete quality documentary and traceability system to allow precise tracking for post-sales service and data support for quality improvement.

Master manufacturing cost-accounting and cost-analysis

Master manufacturing cost-accounting and cost-analysis
Mapping out the standard costs and actual costs can help accurately calculate variable costs in the intelligent manufacturing processes and provide supporting data for product development and planning.

Fully control the budget and subcontractors

Fully control the budget and subcontractors
Incorporating ERPs' advanced concept in manufacturing management, as well as JIT and lean-production concepts, the system provides companies with a whole-process oversight and control over subcontractors, including subcontract planning, supply of materials and sourcing, third party inspections, product warehousing cost accounting, and more.

It also supports enterprises with the library of subcontractor networks, fully manages the progress with subcontractors, increases production efficiency and reduces the cost, and significantly enhances product quality and customer satisfaction.

PLM product optimization and digitalization in material control management

PLM product optimization and digitalization in material control management
Provides standardised control of materials in the creation process. The entire corporation will be able to coordinate the management and control of materials, reduce costs, and solve the problem of overstocking to the point that materials become inactive due to the same materials having multiple codes in traditional ERP; this will reduce inventory costs.

For product design, it uses different drawing software applications, such as AutoCAD, Solidworks and Zhongwang CAD. Kingdee integrates drawings and materials, which makes product designing easier and more efficient, ensures the accuracy of design drawings, guides the construction of product structures according to the drawings, and automatically converts product BOMs.

MES management of production sites

MES management of production sites
IOT integration, hardware and software integration, traditional barcodes and scanners can speed up data entry and the inspection process. With new smart terminals and intelligent terminal controls at production sites, the system deeply integrates with IT and OT technology, breaking the barriers between the information system and underlying equipment, which improves the overall efficiency.

Implementing the integration of R&D management, resource planning, and intelligent manufacturing will help resolve the difficulty of integrating heterogeneous systems and the high costs associated with it. By doing this, it ultimately achieves the integration of PLM + ERP + MES/ S&OP.

Application Blueprint

Manufacturing cloud forms the linkage of different hierarchy levels including C-level, management level, execution level through the industrial network, achieving two-way communication and real-time data sharing. The IOT platform in the bottom with high connectivity to the production devices, enabling real-time collect production and material data; The smart manufacturing platform in the middle allows management in every part of production processes; The cloud platform at the top enables data sharing and real-time monitoring, allowing improvements in speed to market.
