  • Consider the Unique Requirements of Chemical Industries When Selecting ERP Software

    Support for off spec materials, formula management, changeovers, parallel operations, lot trace and trace, unlimited unit of measure conversions, is key.

    There are a host of enterprise resource planning (ERP) and supply chain management applications available to chemical manufacturers—the challenge is selecting the right one that offers a baseline product with industry-specific functionality. Many ERP applications available today are not industry-specific enough for chemical manufacturers and require major modifications, or, one must select from an industry template that may or may not fit specific needs.

    There is also the chance that the software provider may not exist in two to three years (e.g., it may be acquired and the product’s future may become unknown), or the provider may not be financially secure, adding long-term risk.
