With UK manufacturing going through what is defined as an industrial revolution, brought about by the rise in data volumes, the emergence of sophisticated business analytics, human-machine collaboration and robotic and additive manufacturing, it is no wonder that many manufacturers and distributors are finding it difficult to navigate through the jargon to really get to grips with how to integrate business technology systems to drive better performance.
According to K3 Syspro, a leading provider of advanced Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions for manufacturers and supply chain across the UK, manufacturers need to embrace the new industrial revolution, known as Industry 4.0, or risk falling behind. But the question asked by many business leaders is how?
Integrating systems and processes can seem complicated, a perception that K3 Syspro is keen to dispel as it launches an eBook ‘How to manufacture a smarter factory with SYSPRO ERP’, designed to take the confusion out of Industry 4.0 and technology advancements, answering the ‘how’ through expert advice and real-life business examples.
Cathie Hall, managing director of K3 Syspro, said: “We are providing an expert’s guide for companies to stay ahead of the competition in a disruptive and fast evolving marketplace. Industry 4.0 is creating unprecedented opportunities for businesses to connect with each other in real time. For UK manufacturers, understanding how Industry 4.0 is revolutionising business models, is crucial in creating smarter, better integrated and successful manufacturers.
She added: “At K3 Syspro we understand the numerous challenges faced by companies adapting to Industry 4.0. For over thirty years, K3 Syspro has been at the heart of UK manufacturing and distribution, helping organisations in diverse sectors including, automotive, electronics and aerospace, with advanced Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions.

As the shift from mass production to mass customisation continues and servitisation becomes an ever growing area of importance, it is clear that manufacturers face tough decisions where technology is concerned and ensuring that they get the best and most effective solution becomes critical to their success.
