QAD Enterprise Applications helps effective enterprises respond to changing demand, conform to regulatory requirements and control shop floor activities. Whether manufacturers are discrete, process or mixed-mode, whether they uses work orders or rate-based schedules, manufacturing companies must be flexible and continuously improve their operations.

Streamline track and trace recording: Tracking and tracing is required in many industries. Flexible serial tracking, eSignatures and audit trails can simplify the process and improve operational efficiency.

Adopt lean principles: Minimal inventory delivered just in time, foolproof processes, and continuous improvement all are basic tenets of lean. Adopting even a few allows you to reap the benefits of lower costs and higher throughput.

Configure products to order: Reduces finished goods inventory, shortens delivery lead times, improves customer satisfaction and increases manufacturing flexibility.
