Digital transformation (DT) is dominating the manufacturing business nowadays with the requirement of competitive cost, quality and traceability that are the traditional fundamental capabilities needed of any manufacturer or supplier. Without DT, main enterprise actions like determining causes of manufacturing defects, improving sales and market share, reducing any type of costs are difficult to be implemented in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

Manufacturers have tons of options to start their transformation on core processes. They may start it with a little step or some big step. For example, ERP softwares are out there that can be considered as indispensable for SMEs. If we think about the cost first, most manufacturers have to look at cloud solutions for their technology platform choice, including platform-as-a-service (PaaS) and software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions.

Small and medium-sized firms to start or switch to cloud software is always a simpler implementation than local ones with on-premise server. Because on-premises software always requires hardware, IT personnel, maintenance, customization for manufacturers. Ongoing costs like bug-fixes, updates, performance tuning, network and security settings can also be considered. The biggest factor for small and medium-sized manufacturers to choose a cloud solution is to eliminate these costs.

A cloud based ERP system would be best option to start manufacturers’ transformation on core processes. If it implemented properly, ERP system can increase productivity, decrease costs and improve the traceability capability of enterprises.
