Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM)
As industries continue to innovate, creating new and exciting products every day, manufacturing processes are becoming increasingly complex, to the point that without the automated collection of data and digitized decision making, businesses cannot expect to be prepared for the future. D4M International’s Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) practice area is here to help reduce complexity and achieve your business objectives. MOM is a holistic look inside the manufacturing process that lets you find and eliminate inefficiencies, lost time, wasted resources, and more. If your business needs help getting to the next level of success, MOM may be the system that does the job.
Multiple manufacturing streams means multiple shopfloors with various components that do not talk to each other. Even factories equipped with Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) have not necessarily leveraged the benefits of the collected data to make fast, smart, and efficient decisions. As complexity increases, so does inefficiency. And while optimization on the shopfloor is a major concern, businesses also want their manufacturing processes to be stable and scalable, two factors that make future innovation and growth possible. Without some kind of integrated data collection and management system, moving forward in your business can be slow and costly.
MOM eliminates the problems associated with the move toward complexity by replacing all of your systems with a single, integrated, intelligent management system that collects data from all of your manufacturing processes.
A MOM system will help your business manage the manufacturing process from end to end.

D4M International has successfully implemented DELMIA Apriso Products in numerous manufacturing plants. Our primary objective, once our services have been engaged, is to formulate a standardization strategy to integrate your business’ MOM and Industrial Control Systems (ICS) with Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP). With the integration in place, we can work together toward the following goals:
Improving operational visibility gives you a deep look into the various transactions that take place on a day-to-day basis in your business. This insight aids decision making and business performance because you can see what’s actually helping in real-time instead of just making educated guesses.
Gathering a combination of shopfloor data with ERP information in real-time will help to complete tasks more efficiently. Manufacturing and sales information will no longer exist in silos; instead, one set of information informs the outcomes of the other.
Ensuring data integrity supports accurate scheduling, planning, monitoring, resourcing, and costing thanks to real-time reconciliation of information between ERP and MES.
By automating the recording of production data and improving the overall accuracy of the data collected, we can eliminate associated costs, leading to a significant return on investment.
Eliminating redundant MES to ERP manual data entry points not only saves time, but it also removes the possibility for human error.
Minimizing downtime increases the output of the entire manufacturing process. We can use the captured data to identify idle portions of the system and optimize the process to utilize each element to the fullest.
If you are ready to take your business to the next level of success, consider a MOM solution from D4M International. Save time, save money, and make informed decisions that will set your company on the path to profitably manufacturing products that will carry the world into the future.
