Software to track Manufacturing Process

By sebastianstan212 ·
I'm coming from a different world of business software and a customer of mine asked if I knew of anything like this existing.

What they need is something along the lines of

Software to track what they are building

Software to ask the builder certain questions about the process, and store those responses

Software to also track the qualification level about the builder (Cert A, Last Training B Date etc,.)

Basically, if the "raw goods" was a sheet of paper, and the "finished good" was a paper airplane. This software needs to collect and validate data that the production of that paper airplane throughout the process was performed correctly.

I did a bit of research on this, and I was not really sure what key terms I should be using to find software that is applicable.

Enterprise Resource Planning

The keywords you would probably be interested in are Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Manufacturing Execution System (MES). The MES is the interface used to communicate manufacturing requirements to the shop floor and collect data. Both these data are shared with the ERP, which supports all the inventory, planning, scheduling, purchasing, and accounting functions.

Selecting, implementing, and optimizing manufacturing ERPs and MESs is my business. There are a whole bunch of systems out there to choose from ranging from MRPeasy for small manufacturers to SAP for big ones.
