Machinery and Equipment ERP
The assembly operations of this labour intensive industry, creating parts and end products that apply mechanical force to perform work, are what differentiate it from the fabrication industry. The industry is categorised into three groups: special purpose machinery, such as agricultural, or construction; commercial or service manufacturing machinery, and general purpose machinery like engines or ventilation.
The machinery and equipment industry is a mature and well established one. Many firms have carved out reputations for themselves as specialists in their niche area, therefore a lower strategic threat to their business exists. However, this does not make them immune to change. The rise of “Smart Factories” and “Industry 4.0” are forcing the companies to embrace automation and big data or else risk being left behind by the competition.
