Discrete ERP Vs Process ERP

Hi All,

Which ERPs are the best for the Process Manufacturing and Discrete Manufacturing??
Kindly reply.

  • Well you are on a Dynamics forum Big Smile

    Dynamics AX and NAV will do both. For Process I would recommend the FullScope Process Add-on for AX and Process 800 for NAV, although I have not used Process 800.

    Users on here generally do this backwards, they have NAV or AX then try and make it fit the Process industry hence lots of questions on here, however like all matters, if you buy the right thing it makes it a lot easier.

    There are other vertical and industry specific software packages but there are many parameters that form the "best", you would need a process specific consultant not tied to a software house, with multiple implementations to give a balanced answer, lets wait and see Smile

    What is this meaning.

    If it can do both , then why we need to go for  Add-ons .

    Could u explain   about this .

  • In reply to gete:

    It can do both depending upon the needs of the business. I have just implemented in a process vertical for a dairy bakery. They are considered a process vertical and refer to themselves as a process business, and we were able to implement without any real changes to the base code because of the needs of the business. Just because you are in the process industry does not mean you need process add-ons although you may not be considered in teh process industry and still need them - each business is unique and should be assessed in this way.

    You need to go for the add-on where the business needs further functionality. If a certfied add-on already exists meeting the need this should be a fraction of the cost to the end user than re-writing it from scratch.
