In manufacturing, document management is no minor challenge. Invoices, order forms, change requests, proposals, quotes, and quality assurance records come in and out of your company every day. It’s a lot to keep track of.
That’s where a document management system can help in a big way. By automating processes and eliminating paper within your process you can accomplish more work in less time. This improved productivity can have a major impact on your company’s performance, especially given the numerous internal departments operating within a manufacturing environment.
Departments within a manufacturing facility manage complex workflows that are often accompanied with these challenges:
- Tremendous pressure to reduce manufacturing costs. Companies may not realize the huge cost and time economies a document management system can deliver.
- Just like cost reduction goals, manufacturing companies must continually look for ways to gain competitive advantages and improve time-to-market.
- Departments tend to be very “self-contained” making it difficult to locate data across multiple systems and departments.
- Data comes in multiple formats and can be difficult to manage (e.g. electronic orders, paper files, office documents, electronic documents, CAD and large format documents).
- Slow and manual paper-based processes for sharing, reviewing and approving documents and drawings dominate workflows.
