There’s no argument that these are challenging times for discrete manufacturers. The pandemic has brought with it a complex set of challenges, and manufacturers are facing a growing skills gap for workers, among other issues. With problems ranging from erratic supply-chain disruptions to employee shortages, charting a steady course can be harder than ever. Manufacturers need all the visibility, intelligent manufacturing processes and visibility to navigate in this business climate.
Careful management of allergens and organics is increasingly important in the food and beverage industry. Manufacturers must closely manage and track both in the production process to avoid cross-contamination, label properly, and meet the expectations of customers, consumers, and regulators. Considering the growing consumer demand for organic and allergen-free products, the payoff of investing time and resources in proper management is worth it. People are paying more attention – and a higher dollar amount – looking for specific products that meet their dietary and lifestyle preferences. If you can reliably produce products that meet those preferences, you can capture their business, build customer loyalty, and remain competitive in your market. Today, properly managing allergens and organics doesn’t have to be a complex, multi-system process. An Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) with industry-specific features can centralize key aspects of food and beverage manufacturing, saving manufacturers time, reducing risks, and helping them make consistent, quality products with every batch.
Microsoft power platform release plans and Dynamics 365 release plans introduce news features. Numerous new features have been added to the Dynamics 365 applications in this edition.
