ERP for Vehicle Construction
Versatile, profitable and on-time construction of utility and special vehicles
As a manufacturer of utility, special and recreational vehicles as well as vehicle bodies, you have to fulfill diverse customer requirements. You therefore have to manufacture a large number of variants in small quantities down to lot size 1. To win over customers, you need to offer highly customized products at competitive prices and rely on efficient production processes. A central integration and control platform that comprises all business processes, such as proALPHA ERP, is the key success factor here.
The product configurator supports you in managing and manufacturing any number of variants. Moreover, it enables you to reliably confirm delivery dates. Deep integration of your CAD environment into the ERP software promotes seamless information flows between your engineering department and other relevant departments. Optimized planning boosts efficiency in line production, standard production, and assembly. Parts and lots can be fully traced after they have been installed. Integrated financial accounting and powerful performance management functions help you keep tabs on turnover.
