In the pre-crisis days, there was already a lot of talk about digitalization and the need for manufacturing companies to move towards Industry 4.0. This was an industrial revolution that would see the connectivity of manufacturing processes being greatly enhanced through the Internet of Things.
Industry 4.0 may have been started in 2011 by the Germans, but its implementation in Malaysia has been somewhat slow. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we may see this process being accelerated as more and more local manufacturers begin to see the huge potential benefits it could have for their businesses.
Sceptics may think it is not appropriate to discuss the next industrial revolution in times of crisis, but in actual fact, this is more relevant now than ever before. Many manufacturers would have already felt the effects of not being able to manage their businesses directly on-site, having their work capacity cut in half or seeing simple tasks such as managing orders, invoices and other documents becoming monumental missions to accomplish.
It is undeniable that many traditional manufacturers are struggling to survive right now, as there are big disruptions to their demand as well as supply chain. These changes are happening so fast that it is very hard to manage without the help of a proper system.
What makes things even harder are government regulations that serve to further restrict and disrupt operation capacity, be it in terms of assets or human resources. Many business owners are finding it hard to obtain real-time overviews of their businesses currently, as they are either operating traditionally with many manual processes or their data is stuck in departmental silos.
This is usually the result of having different systems that are not integrated with each other. However, during a crisis, production plans need to change at a much higher rate as a result of demand changes or the unavailability of raw materials and production capacity. It is truly a nightmare at present if you do not have an integrated system that covers all your business processes.
Monitor ERP System has been working closely with manufacturing companies since the 1970s. The result is a robust and complete system that is highly optimized for manufacturing companies through decades of experience and customer feedback.
With that in mind, we have planned a series of webinars targeted at helping local small-medium sized manufacturers like yourself to learn new methods of managing your businesses through this crisis.
