How ERP Integrates the Value Chain for Industry 4.0.
Very few industries have grown quite as rapidly as the manufacturing industry over the last number of years. While many sectors have struggled in difficult economic times, the manufacturing sector has found new ways to survive by integrating operations from end to end, embracing new technologies and managing supply chains more efficiently.
