Current Manufacturing Software

Post by GSIB2017 » Wed Mar 13, 2019 12:32 pm

Would love to hear what type of manufacturing software you are using. We are injection molders, using Macola Progression and it is on it's way to be discontinued. Not sure whether to go with the next version which will mean a lot of training or use this opportunity to move into something better suited for manufacturing companies. This was chosen for us 20 years ago when we were purchased from a large manufacturer and now may be the time to move on to something better. Also discussion of cloud versus data on a local server would be helpful. Thanks in advance.

We're using Navision. It's an old software that we inherited from prior management. The current version is called Microsoft Dynamics NAV. Even though Navision's old and outdated, I have found it to be a very good manufacturing enterprise system. It was implemented very poorly so we don't get to use all of its functions. Many of our members use IQMS, and I have heard very positive things over the last several years.
