Infor: Best ERP for Manufacturing Industry

Infor is the ERP in the cloud specifically designed for manufacturing companies

Our differentiation

agile culture

Agile Culture

Agile, multidisciplinary, customer-focused development teams, with the objective of achieving maximum speed and flexibility in the delivery of innovative solutions.

Proximidad al cliente

Customer proximity

An information system has a life cycle similar to that of equipment. They must not only be configured for their intended purpose, but also maintained in the best operational condition.

mejores practicas y transparecia

Best Practices and Transparency

We apply and develop with best practices... We see how CSI facilitates the implementation of agile and efficient manufacturing models. Also, the use of advanced management indicators.

Our successes


Advance Planning and Programming (APS)


Efficiency and productivity in customer service.


(DFMA, Configure to Order)

Chemical distributor: Advance Planning and Programming (APS)


Prior to upgrading to a full ERP, this company performed inventory control using spreadsheets. And, of its financial data by combining different sources: accounting system, spreadsheets, inventory database.

As the company's sales grew, they identified increased costs that impacted on sales margins and reputation as a supplier. Spreadsheets could not account for changes in inventory costs and accounting software did not have the necessary workflows to record cost of goods sold, an important financial metric.

In addition, there were multiple 'island' systems whose data was often hidden by multiple systems. This leads to inaccuracies along the production and distribution chain.

Machine manufacturer: Efficiency and productivity in customer service


A company engaged in the manufacture and supply of industrial machinery implemented CSI to improve after-sales support for its machine customers.

The client noted that the assistance requested by its customers suffered from a number of operational errors that were impacting reputation. This leads to disaffection of workers, and to a drop in profitability due to the execution of guarantees.

Product Configure to Order (DFMA)


The management of configurable products in this company had always relied on solutions that were largely isolated from each other. We refer to the solutions that do the configuration design and those that generate the final quote and pass it to the ERP that collects the order

The company suffered from problems that impacted on its ability to fulfil orders:

  • Isolated data was difficult to share causing inconsistencies and errors in the configuration process.

  • Difficulty in tracking changes and updating configurations in real time.

  • They suffered from communication barriers between the different teams involved in the configuration process, slowing down the overall manufacturing process.

Configuration to Order - Make to Order

APS: Advanced Planning and Programming

Advanced Planning and Scheduling

Information systems are now available to facilitate supply chain management and supply chain integration. These systems are called advanced planning and scheduling systems (APS). An APS relies on advanced mathematical algorithms or logic to perform optimisation or simulation in: finite capacity scheduling, procurement, capital planning, resource planning, forecasting, demand management and others.

  • To have agreed forecasts.

  • Create a preview of the production and delivery plan.

  • Coordination of functions.

  • Identify the solution with the best feasibility.

  • Anticipate the impact of resource availability in relation to orders.

Combination of Manufacturing Models

Manufacturing companies typically have a mix of discrete and flow-type manufacturing processes

An alternative to implementing multiple modules such as flow and discrete for manufacturing, the process mix can be handled using only the discrete manufacturing module, resulting in reduced implementation and support costs.

The key to success in manufacturing is agility, i.e. the ability to accurately anticipate and respond quickly to fluctuations in market demand.

These days the supply chain is more supply-driven. This supply-side orientation means considering the impact of multiple factors, among others:

  • The interruption or overflow of the transport chain.

  • The shortage of raw materials.

  • Restrictions on the possibilities of configurations.

DFMA: Design for Manufacture and Assembly

The benefits of this model are connected to the #Lean trend

The opportunity to apply DFMA comes from the learning gained during previous manufacturing. At other times, it arises from contingent situations such as:

  1. It thinks it can or needs to reduce production costs.

  2. It has observed that, in general, its competitors are able to reach the market earlier.

  3. It has concluded that an adaptation/change in components makes it possible to shorten assembly steps.

  4. You want to reduce the time spent on quality checks.

  5. Introduce faster quality improvements.

  6. Inventory reduction.

Configuration to Order - Make to Order

Adopting a make-to-order strategy offers several advantages to companies

A significant advantage is the ability to reduce inventory costs. Since products are only produced when there is demand, there is no need to maintain a large inventory of finished products. This can lead to significant savings in storage and handling costs.

It also reduces the risk of having excess stock that may become obsolete or have to be sold at a discount. The make-to-order strategy also allows for greater flexibility in production planning.

Industry best practices

Operational Productivity
OEE Overall Equipment Efficiency



Operating performance measures results in relation to the assets used to achieve those results. The determination of operating performance focuses on the degree to which assets are converted into profits and the efficiency with which resources are used to generate income.

what are the associated indicators of Operational Productivity?

Learn more about this practiceDownload



Overall equipment efficiency (OEE) is a metric used to measure the overall efficiency of manufacturing equipment. It can also be measured on a group of machines within a factory or across a company with several factories. OEE is used to determine how productivity improves over time.

MRO stands for maintenance, repair and operations or sometimes maintenance, repair and overhaul. MRO refers to the equipment, tools and activities associated with a company's daily operations.

*It does not include materials, products and services that are used directly in production*, but rather that which binds and holds everything together. MRO may include maintenance of HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning), lighting of facilities.
