MOM systems deliver on performance, cost: study
Commenting on a recent report from the Aberdeen Group on Manufacturing Operations Management systems, officials for software developer Apriso said the report "not only confirms manufacturers achieve cost savings and performance improvements when deploying a platform-based MOM solution, but that these benefits continue to grow as their MOM solution expands."
The research suggests that manufacturers implementing a MOM solution not only achieve performance improvement, but do so at a lower cost, as new applications, functions and locations are added. "These findings are consistent with the benefits Apriso customers recognize when deploying a FlexNet MOM solution," Apriso said in a press release.
For a limited time, a free copy of AberdeenGroup’s latest research, "A Platform Approach to Manufacturing Operations Management" is available at: www.apriso.com/pr/platform-mom .
According to the Aberdeen research, Best-in-Class manufactures attain 42% higher operating margins while spending 60% less. These benefits are achieved with MOM solution spread across 70% more facilities, confirming the continued advantage of an expanded deployment. Further, their share of New Product Introductions that meet time, quality and volume targets is 12% higher. The research attributes these findings to the fact that industry leaders are less likely to take a siloed, plant by plant approach to MOM.
"Most manufacturers understand the importance of identifying and enhancing manufacturing processes and automated work flows in order to achieve sustained performance improvement and reduced manufacturing IT costs," stated Matthew Littlefield, senior research analyst, manufacturing at AberdeenGroup. "Best-in-Class manufacturers take this concept to a new level by expanding these capabilities across multiple applications and geographic regions as a truly global approach to MOM."
Apriso has also prepared an executive brief to explain the causality of deploying a MOM solution and achieving higher manufacturing operations excellence for the lowest total cost. That brief can be found at www.apriso.com/pr/exec-brief.
