Sunchang Corporation Improves Capacity Utilization of Wood Products Business
The nature of the wood products industry can make it difficult to quantify the amount and cost of raw materials needed for production. Often, this can only be done after the timber has been manufactured into plywood or fiberboard. Consequently, many wood product companies struggle to control costs and logistics. Compounding the issue was that many of these organizations were slow to use technology to manage their businesses. Sunchang Corporation, aware of the dangers of poor management, began implementing a JD Edwards EnterpriseOne ERP system in July 2007, going live in May 2009. The company's objectives in installing the system were to standardize data formats, streamline processes, and strengthen corporate security.
