Advanced Manufacturing
How to grow your company with better data, processes and technology

Challenge: How can the Canadian Manufacturing sector compete in the global marketplace?

Solution: Develop smart manufacturing techniques (Advanced Manufacturing)

A typical manufacturer in Ontario can improve upon his design and introduce new materials that are lighter, stronger and or cheaper.  They can purchase robots or high efficiency machines to replace traditional machinery or manpower, but many manufacturers struggle or overlook knowledge based improvements using modern ERP tools.

In this seminar at Microsoft Canada we will do a deep dive into the following 3 areas of process improvement; utilizing the latest software technology from Microsoft and industry specific tools provided by VoxISM.  The topics include:

Maximizing Opportunities/Mitigating Risk

The best way to maximize revenue and profitability is to implement electronic scheduling.  The latest scheduling app allows supervisors to drag and drop work orders from work center to work center.  Call up electronic work instructions and drawings and review the utilization and capacity on a phone or table.  This app integrates directly into the ERP’s graphical scheduling system to better manage the bigger picture, milestones, customer commitments and purchasing.
