Life Sciences Discrete Manufacturing Software

Global competition, the increasing complexity of dispersed supply networks, and ongoing mergers and acquisitions challenge discrete manufacturers to satisfy demanding customers, bring products to market faster, and operate profitably. Yet these companies often struggle with patchwork information systems that are unable to handle the required number of item dimensions, limit flexibility, and inhibit visibility into operations.

Integrate production processes, routing, and complex item data to increase efficiency, improve traceability, and manage cascading product specifications across the supply chain. MAXLife ERP provides medical device and other discrete manufacturers with a flexible, scalable solution that integrates business and production processes to shorten cycle times, enable project and financial control and visibility, and empower expansion into new territories and services.

Benefits of MAXLife Discrete Manufacturing:

  • Enhance material and product traceability. Track materials from purchase through production and sale with lot and location control. Respond effectively to recall notices or queries about item engieering, sourcing, and current use.

  • Streamline supply chain interactions. Take advantage of multicurrency, multilanguage, and multi-site support to speed transactions, improve transparency, and facilitate consolidated financial reporting.

  • Integrate design innovation into manufacturing. Shorten time to market for new product innovations by integrating design and manufacturing processes, managing projects effectively, and collaborating effectively with suppliers, partners, and customers.

  • Support flexible manufacturing processes and multiple business models. Tailor your solution to fit your business and server multiple manufacturing models, including make-to-stock (MTS), make-to-order (MTO), assemble-to-order (ATO), configure-to-order (CTO), and engineer-to-order (ETO). Support "smart customizations" and modularized product manufacturing, and engineer new products to unique customer specifications.

  • Gain insight to respond effectively to changing conditions. Run simulations and model new processes to adapt effectively to changes in product lines, manufacturing capabilities, supply partners, production geographies, and distribution.

With robust, industry-specific functionality and tight integration with other Microsoft technologies, MAXLife ERP is a comprehensive business management solution that provides a high degree of scalability and readily adapts to your company's needs and changing corporate structure. And with support for multiple languages and currencies, you can operate smoothly across geographies.
