- Discrete: Discrete manufacturing is used for the production of distinct, individual items. These items are made using parts, bills of materials, etc., and can be made at various production rates.Make-to-Order: An item is manufactured only after a customer places an order for it. For example, business cards, and birthday cakes are made-to-order.
Make-to-Stock: Bulk production of items that are made based on future demand forecasts. Mass-produced, fast-moving consumer goods usually fall under this category. Consumer electronics (e.g., phones, air conditioners, etc.), and packaged food and beverages are always made-to-stock.
Engineer-to-Order: A unique manufacturing process wherein an item is designed, engineered, and then produced to match the customer’s order specifications. Project Management is an integral part of this process. Specialty machinery, custom furniture, tailored clothing, etc. are usually engineered-to-order. This usually also requires the Project Management module.
2. Repetitive: With some exceptions, this category usually has dedicated production lines that turn out the same item continuously.
3. Process: Commonly used in beverage, chemical, and pharmaceutical manufacturing. Requires materials, ingredients, and recipes using bulk material (as opposed to singular parts, components, etc). The end product is obtained by a set of continuous processes.
4. Continuous: Similar to repetitive manufacturing, the production lines run all the time.
5. Batch: Instead of churning out products constantly, the manufacturing takes place on a per-batch basis.
ERP is traditionally tailored towards discrete manufacturing. Typical functions include inventory and materials management, supply chain management, finances, and CRM.
