How can it management consulting serve the informatization of manufacturing industry?

in the process of improving management level through the introduction of information technology, it management consulting should be paid enough attention. In addition, it management consulting will be a continuous optimization process. This process does not end with the system going online, but takes it as a new starting point to support the continuous improvement of enterprise management level

recently, with the rise of enterprise information construction, the quality of the spring in the coil spring of I automobile safety belt is quite important, and T management consulting has also received more and more attention, while manufacturing enterprises are often considered to be the focus of IT management consulting. Then, why are manufacturing enterprises so closely related to information construction and most users have a preliminary awareness of T management consulting? What problems should manufacturing enterprises pay attention to when introducing management software and it management consulting? This article will discuss this

erp and manufacturing

erp has a natural connection with manufacturing, but ERP is not a customized concept for manufacturing. Therefore, do not expect that various management problems faced by manufacturing enterprises will be solved after the introduction of ERP products

it management consulting is accompanied by enterprise management software. As we all know, ERP software comes from MRP Ⅱ and MRP software. MRP software mainly solves the production scheduling problem of manufacturing enterprises, and MRP II adds the function of cost accounting on the basis of MRP. In fact, MRP and MRP Ⅱ are completely designed for manufacturing enterprises. Therefore, it can be said that ERP software has a natural connection with manufacturing

erp software not only inherits the production management function and cost accounting function from MRP Ⅱ software, but also integrates other enterprise management functions such as financial management function, logistics management function and human resource management function. Therefore, ERP software can be said to be an extension of MRP Ⅱ and MRP software. However, although ERP software is formed based on MRP Ⅱ software system, the essence of ERP system does not completely lie in the management functions it provides. In fact, the core idea conveyed by ERP is the sharing of internal management information. In the early 1990s, gartnergroup initially defined ERP system as an enterprise management information system with client/server structure. It can be seen that what the ERP concept emphasizes is to break the information barrier within the enterprise, so that the enterprise can uniformly allocate and manage internal resources on a unified information platform. This concept is not only applicable to manufacturing enterprises, but also can be widely adopted by all kinds of enterprises. Therefore, ERP is no longer the patent of manufacturing enterprises

in 2000, gartnergroup added a new connotation to ERP, thus introducing the concept of ERP II. From the definition, ERP II adds SCM, CRM and e-commerce function modules on the basis of ERP. But in essence, the management concept expressed by ERP II is to expand the management focus of enterprises from the coordination between various systems within the enterprise to the coordination between various enterprises in the industrial chain, so as to support the coordinated industrial chain operation mode. For this reason, ERP II focuses on adding the management function of electronic transactions on the basis of the internal management function of ERP. It can be seen that ERP II pays more attention to the external coordination function of the enterprise, and the high accuracy of the sensor further desalinates its manufacturing brand

ERP and it management consulting

in fact, from the perspective of management consulting, the application of IT technology in enterprise management should first comply with the management needs of enterprises, so it management consulting is only an extension of enterprise management

since ERP products entered China, the domestic ERP market has been showing worrying product driven characteristics. In the enterprise management software market, Chinese entrepreneurs are far from mature and rational. In the late 1990s, when ERP was just emerging, the role of IT management consulting was often to implement the designated ERP system for enterprises according to the requirements of enterprises

however, with the increase of domestic ERP implementation failure cases and the high price and implementation cost of foreign ERP software, more domestic enterprises show hesitation and hesitation. At this time, it management consulting began to really emerge

the industry often compares management consulting to "enterprise doctors". Using this metaphor, the introduction of ERP management system should be a prescription issued by doctors to solve enterprise management problems, and ERP products are the specific drugs used in the prescription. Here are two issues worth noting: first, the key to treatment is to clarify the disease and cause, rather than deciding what medicine to use before seeing a doctor; Secondly, ERP drugs are more like prescription drugs used according to the doctor's advice, rather than over-the-counter drugs that can be purchased and used directly from pharmacies. When doctors see doctors, medication often needs to be determined according to the specific situation of patients. For example, for chronic pharyngitis, gargling with light saline can achieve obvious curative effect, while for acute pneumonia, better antibiotics are needed to inhibit the disease, otherwise the consequences may be unimaginable

the same is true for enterprises. The introduction of ERP system is only a means to solve enterprise management problems, and the real purpose is still to solve the problem itself. Therefore, the primary task of enterprise management consulting is to determine the management problems faced by the enterprise and their causes in combination with the resource status and development direction of the enterprise, and then determine the improvement plan. If the enterprise is facing problems in internal process efficiency and cost control, the introduction of ERP system may be a good remedy for the symptoms. However, if the primary problem faced by enterprises is the determination of business strategy or the integration of organizational structure, ERP system will have no direct use

even if the management problems of the enterprise need to be solved by the information system, the applicable products should be determined according to the conditions and business needs of the enterprise. First of all, it should be clear that the system functions required by the enterprise management problem: is it a cost accounting problem, a customer relationship management problem, or a logistics management problem? In addition, the scale of business and the financial capacity of enterprises are also very important for the choice of information systems. Domestic software and
