Manufacturing matters. It creates wealth, sustains jobs and has been the foundation of all economies based on international trade. Modern manufacturing is much more than a powerful production line. For manufacturing companies that compete on a global level, investments must remain constant in new technologies and solutions that help them increase the value delivered from their production operations. Exceed onDemand is such a solution.
Any manufacturing company that wants to survive these days needs to be able to tackle four major challenges:
- An increased fragmentation of the production lines at an international level
- An acceleration in the pace at which new technologies are emerging and being adopted
- The need to improve the skills base and attract new talent into manufacturing
- Stronger than ever calls from consumers and government alike to reduce carbon footprint
OpenText Exceed onDemand is here to help manufacturing companies tackle some of these challenges. By providing global managed access to their business applications, Exceed onDemand offers manufacturing organizations the ability to transform their IT infrastructure into a truly agile Enterprise service. It provides them with a better way to deliver business services to their users and partners and increase the value they derive from their IT infrastructure.
3D technologies have brought many benefits to the world of manufacturing, particularly in the domain of design and simulation: ability to view designs in real-size 3D models before beginning production and virtualization of simulation tasks saving time and money. Exceed onDemand can deliver the most demanding 3D applications across any network to any user, allowing them to leverage 3D technologies no matter where they are located.
Manufacturing and documentation go hand-in-hand. With guidelines from agencies such as OSHA, USDA, FDA, and ISO, manufacturers understand that ready and reliable access to the lastest policy or safety standard is critical.
Manufacturers are constantly trying to balance the need for maintaining and streamlining operations while at the same time, investing in new technology and innovation.
With so much operational data, manufacturers are looking for creative ways to solve business problems, improve operational efficiency, while reducing systems overhead.
Producing the highest possible quality for the lowest possible cost has always been the number one objective of most manufacturing Enterprise. Outsourcing has for a long time been considered as one of the ways to achieve that goal. OpenText Exceed onDemand helps manufacturing organizations obtain better and faster results from their outsourcing strategy by providing flexible on-demand external access to business applications while maintaining tight control over resources.
Manufacturing design and engineering is all about faster time to market and better production outcome control. That is why it remains critical that organizations offer a best-of-breed environment to their engineers. Exceed onDemand creates a centrally managed delivery channel for PLM and CAD-CAM applications, helping companies improve the productivity of their engineering task force, while maintaining control over their intellectual property.
The increasing international fragmentation of production lines, the need to keep control over intellectual property and the necessity to leverage internal know-how has led the manufacturing industry to operate a global workforce dispersed across geographies. Exceed onDemand helps organizations offer secure and reliable Enterprise access tobusiness applications regardless of their location and connection quality.
