It’s a fact: manufacturers are under competitive pressure to bring products to market faster than ever, at lower prices, with higher levels of customization. Becoming more demand-driven calls for new levels of agility and flexibility in your manufacturing operations. That’s why many companies are choosing to pursue a “mixed-mode” manufacturing strategy.

In mixed mode manufacturing, you may have some high-volume products you produce using a batch process, while making other low-volume items with discrete manufacturing methods, such as make-to-stock or assemble-to-order. Yet you’re still managing your entire business under one umbrella.

It’s not easy, given that many manufacturing software applications aren’t flexible enough, or lack functionality to fit one mode or the other. But running multiple software systems is painful, too, creating inefficiencies between divisions or departments, blocking collaboration and driving up IT costs.
