Process Manufacturing describes a manufacturing process whereby materials are blended, cooked, or mixed as opposed to assembled from discrete units. Some needs common to process manufacturing industries are:

&bullFormulas (or recipes) are ratios, not static bills of material
&bullSplit bill of material: several products can share one formula, yet have different packaging
&bullFlexibility with units of measure
&bullStringent quality control, with recall ability
&bullLot grading / attribute tracking and calculation

Timely, reliable, and centralized data are non-negotiable elements for businesses competing in the 21st century."

The term escape velocity refers to the speed that is necessary for an object to overcome gravity and soar into space. EVS provides direct applications for businesses looking for a catalyst, not just a software package.

The gravity of status-quo opposes aggressive, cutting edge organizations as they strive towards high quality and short lead time delivery while reducing inventories and operating costs.
