Manufacturers today can no longer afford to ignore the challenges that their sector faces but need to deal with and overcome them proactively.
Challenges of Industrial Equipment Manufacturers
The main difficulties that industrial equipment manufacturers can  come across include an incomplete view of their profitability, lack of insight into supply chain, and the means to collaborate productively across the various stakeholders.

Engineering challenges

In the process of manufacturing, the receipt of change orders, recording, and translating these to engineering changes within projects can be a significant issue. You need to have a structured process to handle engineering changes that you can coordinate with the help of mobile access to ensure that instant action can be taken. The mobility aspect can support the immediate acceptance and inculcation of engineering change requests into the project specifications.

Quotation errors

In any business, the bottom line is the goal, and for this to happen you must start at the beginning—the quotation. Without the right quote, with the correct costing, you either don’t make a profit, because you have not included all the elements, or lost the client due to high costing. Sales personnel need access to details, so they can get the right estimate and quote to their customers.

Planning hiccups

The essence of planning is plotting out the project’s timelines that begins with start and end dates.  IEM leverages the Critical Path Method to come up with this timeline. Visualization helps compare the actual progress of the project in comparison to the timeline, giving you an indication of the areas in which there could be potential delays. What you need is a solution that offers visual capabilities to schedule resources and materials as per the various milestones to flow without hassles.  This can ensure that manufacturing is on time and service delivery is as per schedule.

Logistical confusions

Manufacturing companies have a considerable amount of equipment and materials that need to move from the shop floor to production operations Without the right support, this could lead to a situation that can only be described as a logistical nightmare. You need a solution that helps you plan the capacity of the machine so that the person in charge can assign resources to the machines as required.

Resource management

In the planning of the manufacturing process, one of the main problems that project managers tend to face is that of resource management. You need the means to link resources (people and materials) to the project tasks and deal with changes like escalations, interruptions, and absences. Doing so will ensure that the resources are not wasted neither are they overly strained.

Service flow problems

The scope of work for manufacturing companies in most instances may not end with the project assembly or manufacture.  It could also involve the transfer the result of the project to the base, which offers service opportunities like maintenance, repair, and overhaul services. This can pose some service integration issues that can be mitigated with the right support with job creation functionality. With this category of services, a project can be created to ensure that the consumption of service order (material, resources, expense, etc.) can be posted to the relevant project.
