Infor's new comprehensive manufacturing process automation application bridges the gap from idea to execution. Built for the cloud, Infor Factory TrackTM helps manufacturers synchronize their enterprise plans with plant activities.
It was developed using Infor Mongoose, a rapid application development platform that enables more configurability and ease of enhancements. Infor Factory Track offers the latest consumer-grade user experience from the shop floor kiosks to handheld barcode scanners.
The solution offers three key modules:
- Warehouse Mobility will help organizations simplify inventory management, automate data collection and eliminate errors and inventory write-offs.
- Time Track will collect labor time and attendance and provide easy payroll extracts to feed payroll applications.
- Shop Floor will automate production schedule execution, dispatch operations, and work center operations.
The solution supports all the functions of the enterprise and has the capabilities to increase inventory accuracy, reduce carrying costs, reduce overhead, understand the true cost associated with labor, create strategic plans, and increase compliance and traceability.
"Manufacturers invest significant time and resources in planning solutions, such as their ERP, to help manage enterprise-level business processes like financial management, order processing, and operational planning. However, there is an inherent gap between planning systems and their ability to execute when it comes to automation of shop floor and warehouse business processes," said Mark Humphlett, director, Industry and Solution Strategy, Infor. "Infor Factory Track not only bridges this gap, but also helps organizations reduce cost, increase productivity and gain a competitive advantage."
