To-order Manufacturing Process Automation | Visibility ERP Workflow

By: Caitlin Gilmore

Many inconsistencies in business process management relate to "off-system" manual tasks, such as notification, investigation, authorization, and follow up. According to Steve Carson, Executive VP of Sales at Visibility Corporation, "VISIBILITY.net ERP has the ability to automate business processes through the use of workflow templates; making it easier to control and administer standard processes."

For most To-Order manufacturing companies, a flow or process may have been documented outside of an ERP system with no formal way to ensure compliance. In the past, routing paper documents and selective email have provided a partial solution, but with no controls to assure visibility and compliance, the value was limited. VISIBILITY.net Workflow enforces the process and allows To-Order manufactures to improve and standardize daily functions across the company without burdensome manual administration. This streamlines operational execution and provides employees visibility into the status of "in-process" tasks. Workflow in combination with standard ERP transaction flows make execution of business tasks far more effective.

Workflows can be defined with multiple or conditional branch points or event nodes. The VISIBILITY.net workflow engine automatically monitors the execution of each activated workflow to assure timely processing. The workflow task list allows users to quickly determine the exact state of an in-process workflow. The VISIBILITY.net process modeling tool allows To-Order manufacturing companies to establish business processes such as approval routings for purchase requisitions and sales quotes without the need for specialized programming skills.
