Importance of adopting digitisation in manufacturing process
As we enter a truly digital age, manufacturers are increasingly looking to technology to help in ways they might never have imagined before. Everyone knows the effectiveness of adopting digitisation in the manufacturing sector. From implementation of ERP/SAP/HRMS to any other system to streamline the workforce, a digital initiative plays very crucial role in the development.
For any manufacturing unit, inventory management is tough task as the efficiency and output are totally dependent on the same. With the implementation of any digital platform like software or system, inventory management is quite easy and simple. One can manage the inventory cycle easily. It is notably evident that for a single product, there are multiple entries done at various level. Even at some companies, a dedicated employee is there for data entry. From invoice generation to order processing and from billing to account management – every process in done with a single click. So with all these implementations, the above issues are easily resolved.
Another benefit included the proper workforce management with the help of digital platforms. The employee can get the automated attendance reports. With digitisation, attendance and payroll management of even huge workforce is far easier.
Preparedness of small and medium units in question!
Looking at the present scenario, there are two categories in the manufacturing sector if being discussed about the digitisation. First one is small and medium sector units and other one is large scale units, on the basis of IT infrastructure.
The large-scale units are already digitised and systems are implemented which is helping them to increase their revenue and reduce the losses. However the question arises on the preparedness of small and medium units. The major problem faced by these units is outsourcing of IT infrastructure and work. The in-house activity is reduced to sales and marketing of the product they are dealing with. Except that almost every other work like accounting, data management, salary processing and HR related work – all are outsourced. So, the major hindrance for the preparedness for digitisation in small manufacturing units is improper management of IT infrastructure. This issue can be resolved very soon when both seller and buyer will use a digitised platform. That will actually force the manufacturing units to improve their digitisation.
