Matics is not an ERP system, although one could say that there are some overlaps. The ERP knows “what”, while a smart shop floor control solution knows “how to”. ERP systems offer a transaction-based functionality for financials, orders, customer management, inventory, and human resources. It is a static model whereby data is input and tagged, creating data links, but there’s no workflow control.
Matics is easily integrated with any ERP and offers the functionality necessary for complex manufacturing. It manages shop floor operations, and links data in a production cycle, flagging mistakes and quality issues. Matics provides real-time analytics that has proven to result in over 25% improvement in efficiency within the first 3 months.
