Industrial journalist, TR Cutler recently reported on a new category of business systems built specifically to support large project-based manufacturers from end-to-end, called Project Business Automation (PBA). Read the full article in the May issue of Manufacturing Outlook magazine here.
According to Cutler, PBA allows companies to operate with real-time visibility and control. Any large manufacturer that delivers its goods or services to its customers through projects will find PBA ideal.
“The mix of applications used invariably includes massive amounts of spreadsheets. To manage this limitation, most large manufacturers employ controllers and data processors to export, import, and consolidate data from these different systems. They manipulate the data to create reports for executives attempting to manage the business with this information. It is a deeply flawed and antiquated methodology for large project-based manufacturers in 2021, shared Cutler.
Project business executives typically have very little visibility into the current real-time status of their projects and therefore the business as a whole. Under their current fragmented application landscape, they may receive weekly status updates and monthly overviews. Sadly, this information is already outdated by the time they receive it, due to the time required to consolidate the data and generate reports. As a result, issues and risks go unnoticed until they have grown into drastic production crises which risk the entire project. Decision-making becomes extremely difficult for large manufacturers of project business operations with limited, outdated, and inaccurate information.
Adeaca built the first Project Business Automation system, providing an all-in-one business management solution for project-based companies. Their expertise in project-based industries, together with Microsoft’s enterprise platform, Dynamics 365 Finance, delivers a comprehensive solution that is used by large manufacturing companies worldwide.
