An ERP System for Complex Manufacturing and Supply Chain Processes

IFS Applications is an ERP system that covers the entire flow and all processes of a company while transforming complicated ordering and manufacturing processes into a streamlined and manageable flow both in terms of operations and finance.

IFS Applications is based on four main pillars:

  • Projects
    • Project and order producing companies
    • Advanced revenue recognition methods
    • Configuration
  • Manufacturing
    • Manufacturing companies with complex processes
    • E.g. process industries with recipes, traceability, control plans, etc.
    • Make-to-order manufacturing models, e.g. with intercompany trade
  • Service & Asset
    • E.g. for service providing companies
    • Proactive and reactive maintenance
    • Summation and re-invoicing of incurred costs
  • Supply Chain:
    • E.g. companies with international sales and manufacturing subsidiaries and intercompany trade

This solution diversity integrated in IFS Applications allows for companies to restructure, refocus, form new partnerships, or expand with new functions without the need to acquire and adapt to a different IT system. Whether your company is establishing a subsidiary or changing focus from a manufacturing to a project-oriented strategy, such new challenges can be met within IFS Applications by adapting your existing solution, typically through module additions and modifications.

A Module-Based Structure

The flexibility of IFS Applications is rooted in its module-based architecture. This allows for a customised solution built from modules specifically relevant for your company and easily adaptable to match any future organisational changes and needs.

User Interface

IFS Applications presents a contemporary browser-based user experience through an intuitive interface setup created with the user in mind to improve manageability and strengthen employee commitment.

With the introduction of IFS Lobby you no longer need to search for specific information and raw data essential to your decision processes. IFS Lobby provides you with a clear, combined overview of tasks, processes, and significant data all combined in one single frame for easy monitoring.

IFS Lobby allows you to define what information is presented to the individual user. Defined by the user type or the specific user, the lobby can be customized so that the project manager and the warehouse employee are both shown what specific information they need in order to work as well-informed and as efficient as possible.

The deep-rooted overall functionality, the module-based structure, and the agility of the technical architecture integrated in IFS Applications are well aligned with the growing tendency in the industry towards inherently flexible standard solutions as opposed to more from fixed system solutions that become increasingly complex with every adjustment and addition. IFS Applications will be able to effectively support your company exercising best practice in most areas with highly flexible and advanced configuration and design opportunities giving you the chance to greatly influence your own IFS solution.
