Today’s manufacturing environment is more dynamic than ever before. We see it every day in different companies and industry segments. One particular segment that is particularly dynamic these days is electronic manufacturing. What makes this segment so dynamic is the high level of integration required between different companies in order to produce a finished product. If you interested to learn more about electronic manufacturing, navigate to this interesting article, Top 6 Challenges of Electronics Manufacturing. The following passage resonated with some of our ideas we have at inforbix:
Short Product Lifecycles: With quickly changing consumer tastes and preferences, EMS companies and contract manufacturers need to have effective New Product Introduction (NPI) processes in place. Closed-loop communication between sales, manufacturing, and engineering is vital to ensure product launches hit time, volume, and quality targets.
BTW, in addition to the blog post, an on-demand webinar on the electronics manufacturing segment is available here.
Per the passage, above, one way to ensure efficiency with contract manufacturing and cross domain communication is to have an efficient way to share and update data about product, project and other related pieces of the information. Since we might be dealing with a diverse set of organizations, having the ability to use a single system that organizes everything is practically impossible to achieve. Moreover, most small companies cannot invest in data management systems. This is where Inforbix can help.
Inforbix provides an easy and efficent way to share product data and other related information. Inforbix is easy and intuitive to use; it deploys cloud technology that enables secure company wide data availability.
