Few industries have been disrupted by new technology as much as the printing and packaging industries. If you’re in one of these industries, you aren’t just using technology advances to execute long-standing business processes with greater efficiency. In printing and packaging, digital technology has fundamentally transformed your business model, changing how you produce products, your potential customer base, and your competitors. You’re operating in a new high-speed, high-quality era that’s putting new pressures on your business.

The molding business seems simple in theory, but in practice there’s plenty of complexity. The extensive assortment of tools and accessories associated with each molding machine creates a formidable logistical puzzle that you must solve repeatedly to keep production flowing. There’s more to it than knowing you have all the equipment you need—you also need to be sure that you have the correct mix of tools on hand for the mix of jobs you’ve scheduled. Lacking an essential tool at a critical time has the same effect on production as having a broken machine. Efficient tool management is essential to achieving optimal throughput.
With the help of the Molding Pack, you’ll be able to:
You can make quick work of the complex planning around tools, machines, and other equipment required for the molding industry with the help of the Infor CloudSuite Molding Pack.
Manufacturing in the process industry requires a unique set of capabilities that are vastly different than discrete manufacturing. Where discrete manufacturing assembles many different parts to create a single finished good, process manufacturing formulates a set of materials that can produce many different finished products with unique packaging configurations.
These differences require a formula management system that allows for construction of formulas that account for factors like solubility and total yield. It requires having the flexibility to resize formulas to produce batches according to your production needs. You can design a formula to produce a batch of 10,000 pounds, but if you only have demand for 6,000 pounds you can resize the production lot and it will make all the mathematical calculations based on the formula for all the materials going into that production lot.
