The Infor VISUAL ERP excels in giving end-to-end visibility for order-driven manufacturing companies.
True End-to-End Visibility
Infor VISUAL takes the guesswork out of generating quotes and estimating delivery dates through their patented “finite scheduling” algorithm. At a glance, VISUAL not only presents your on-hand materials but also accounts for when expected materials will be available. Moreover, VISUAL utilizes intuitive diagramming allowing you to see visually and resolve potential bottlenecks.
As an ERP solution, Infor VISUAL allows for real-time visibility. Vital questions on scheduling, arrival times, and real costs versus estimates are answered with current performance data rather than guessing using data from previous weeks or statements. The strategical manufacturing advantages from being able to immediately monitor and respond to operational situations are where VISUAL differentiates itself from other ERP software platforms.
Designed with Manufacturing in Mind
Infor VISUAL understands the unique challenges of manufacturing and is the go-to ERP solution for manufacturers.
The Infor VISUAL Manufacturing modules incorporate all phases of production planning, execution and manufacturing control functions. As a result, manufacturers can automate and manage everything from production planning and execution to quality management and equipment maintenance. These powerful tools support your method of manufacturing – whether you have lean or traditional manufacturing operations.
The patented Concurrent Scheduler has transformed the way manufacturers created their shop schedules, assuring the most efficient application of materials and resources. You can choose from a selection of production scheduling methods, including Finite Capacity Scheduling (FCS), Infinite Scheduling, and Lean (Drum Buffer Rope) Scheduling.
The Manufacturing Window®, the master engineering and production management tool, displays a full-color, graphical interface which enables you to create an engineering plan or Bill of Material (BOM) quickly and easily. You can then automatically create a quote or work order for that design. The Manufacturing Window also provides a complete view of everything involved in the engineering process, from materials to operations.
All of this integrates seamlessly with the material planning, purchasing, and scheduling tools in Infor VISUAL to give you full control over inventory, costs, and resources.
Cost-Effective and Built to Scale
What sets Infor VISUAL apart is how well it works for manufacturing operations of all sizes. Between its low cost of ownership, all-in-one functionality, and intuitive user experience – it’s a great option, no matter how simple or robust you need your ERP to be.
